Description: EL DROPO nace con la idea de unir tradicion y vanguardia, aglutinando en su carta diversas comidas internacionales, propiciando una experiencia que emocione, en la que comer no se vea cenido a un tipo de cocina especifica, en la que lo comensales puedan jugar con combinaciones multiples, haciendo que comer sea abrir la mente a nuevas formas de entender las cocina del mundo, combinarlas, saltarse sus limites. Para ello, creamos un espacio en un entorno unico, donde queremos dar rienda suelta a lo que siempre nos ha movido, una gastronomia que aune culturas y tradiciones, proponiendo recetas arriesgadas e innovadoras, maridando con vinos internacionales que realcen nuestro platos.Y todo ello con una base irrenunciable, comer no debe ser un lujo, excepto para los sentidos. Nos motiva hacer accesible la cocina internacional, que degustar un vino de calidad acertado para cada plato no tiene porque ser elitista, debe ser una experiencia divertida y unica.

High quality innovative cooking in really pleasant surroundings. The salad with scallops and prawns was impeccable and the slow cooked lamb was outstanding. The desert, a barbarois de fresa was skilfully made and delicious. Short but high quality wine list. The Habla de Silencio was delicious,well priced and served at a prefect temperature. Overall a really high quality and very... More

A quiet night, but the food was excellent, service quirky but fast, and the bill was not eye watering. Of course the red wine was served as cold as can be, Spanish style.

This restaurant looks lovely from the outside, is clean and smart inside, and is in a great location. The food and service however is a let down. We enjoyed our complimentary fish pate (after a long wait), and the gazpacho was OK but nothing special. We ordered white wine and (eventually) red turned up which we had to send back... More

Unfortunately this time, Trip Advisor let us down; we went here about ten days ago on a short trip to Zafra and we went up to the roof terrace which was dirty and not laid out for clients; the tapas were frozen little empanadas and not impressive when deep fried - we can buy them in any supermarket. The meal... More

El Dropo is not easy to find but it is worth the search. Located at the corner between the Plaza Grande and the Plaza Chica, the small tapas bar doesn't look like much, but that is just the ground floor. The restaurant is one flight up and overlooks the plaza. The decor is a pleasant and surprisingly modern twist among... More

Lovely restaurant in a great location. This is a stylish and beautifully retored restaurant right in the centre of town. The food was excellent and the waiter could not have been more helpful and attentive. We would definitely go when we are in Zafra again.

I agree with the previous excellent reviews. The food was good, reasonably priced and the surroundings appealing. The waiter couldn't do enough for us and although he showed us to the terrace at the end of our meal, we took a bottle of wine outside to the one of their tables on the square for to soak up the Saturday...

We agree with all the praiseworthy comments in 'tripadvisor reviews' about El Dropo Restaurant in Plaza Grande, Zafra. Loved the Food (great menu), Decor (beautifully done) and general ambience of this small restaurant. We ate in the first floor restaurant - but don't miss the top floor terrace. Quite magical with amazing views over the dramatic old town. The restaurant... More
