We went here with fairly large groups In July and August. The food and service were excellent. We visit here often because it's just off the main square and offers good value for money.

I was there with friends thought it's good restaurant but we get bad service and terrible food. I don't advice any one to visit this restaurant.

The welcome was fantastic, very hospitable, atmosphere and location were lovely. All 3 courses on the set menu were however, disappointing. The set menu (3 courses for €18) had a good selection but we found the dishes were bulked out with mushrooms(and other items) with very little meat or fish as the main attraction. All in all we were only... More

Faby, the owner of these 2 small restaurants, has successfully introduced F ranch and Belgian cuisine to this Spanish village. The 18€ 3 course lunch is very good value and offers a good choice. Particularly good is the. Prawn pil pil starter.
