Very nice!

Really lovely place, modern and well put together. We ate here on New Year's Day.. Everything else was closed so we were lucky! The staff were lovely. Had the pâté which was so good. Not the biggest dinner selection but still good. Fairly expensive but it's more than your average place to eat.

lovely ambience, accompanied with a great menu. It has a special vegetarian section which was noteworthy. Excellent service, also spoke great english. I enjoyed the deserts and irish coffee at the end. Road is a bit noisy but you soon forget that.

The atmosphere was really nice and the tapa too, maybe should try different dish, anyway was ok and not really... More

In this village you would expect the typical tapas crowdy bar with "jamones" drying on the ceiling but here you will be comfortably seated with a nice view on the valley. Typical tapas from the area you could find of course but also more refined (but also more expensive) dishes. To be recommended for dinner.

Very nice atmosphere. Food reasonable but expensive. Service, although friendly, is not very competent. Maybe a good place to take a drink at night.
