Reservations in advance are needed. The crowd was more in the late 50's, suppose it's expected as it is not inexpensive,but worth your while definitely!

Truly top quality food and wonderful service. The staff spoke English which helped and recommended some great food choices. The icing on the cake was the home made Cassis for free was delish!

Casa Irene has a great reputation, and I have to say that it lived and surpassed all expectations. The restaurant offers some amazing service, top notch in every way, only surpassed by the quality of the food that is served. Anything that we tried, from traditional dished to more refined international cuisine, was utterly delicious. In a valley that is... More

We came across this restaurant during a recent back packing trip. It's only a small Spanish village but the quality of the food is excellent. If we ever return to this area we will definitely seek out this restaurant . A very enjoyable evening.

We ordered the €35 menu and what a feast it was! Irene's appetizers came one after another. The main course of cod with roast almonds was delicious! And I especially loved the strawberry liqueur! Not to be missed!

The restaurant is very unpretentious and cosy. It came recommended, but we really didn't realize how seriously they take food here. We loved it! We ate with 2 children and 4 adults & the staff bent over backwards to make sure we all enjoyed our meal...Pasta and beef, simply for the kids and loads of appetizers for the 4 to... More
