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.

Some things were not cooked properly. Some were overcooked. They served pancakes as desert with chocolate sauce from a bottle ... in a Belgian restaurant? They offered free coffee but... More
