Went there for a meal as it was suggested by some friends. We had two servings of tapas (delicious to say the least), 10 drinks and 2 desserts and it didn't even come to 50€. The only thing that I didn't like was the enclosed surroundings, as the restaurant is in the middle of a park.

Huge outdoor eatery. Very reasonable prices. Good basic food. Amazing atmosphere especially around fiesta times. Everything from tapas to a full meal. Often about 20€ for 4or5 people. Don't expect linen tablecloths or napkins and keep your bill as you pay on the way out.

This place is very Spanish and if you accept that you will have a great experience in a great atmosphere. My advice to Brits is get there at 8.30 it will be nearly empty, order some food, you don't want to order everything at once,do it the Spanish way a bit at a time, then watch as the place fills...

Was recommended this place by one of the locals, no thrill eatery/canteen. Either self serve or table service the choice of tapa,s was huge, had a veritable feast including drinks and water for less than 15 euro,s great value after paying 36 euros for breakfast at the Parador !

I am not sure when the first reviewer went to a Motorway Services outlet in the UK last, but I can tell you all of those offer dreadful unhealthy food at vastly inflated prices. This is a complete contrast to Motorway services around the rest of Western Europe. This Restaurant is different. It is designed for typical Spanish fare, and... More

This place was recommended to us as being "typically Spanish", in which case I can only pity the typical Spaniard. The restaurant layout is reminiscent of a very large, British motorway services with hundreds of tables around a central kitchen. One side of the establishment is waiter service and the other is self service (including table covers, crockery and cutlery).... More
