The best "tortilla" ever

We had read about the quality of the "Tortilla de Patatas" this restaurant is known for. May we say, we had the simplest meal but one of the best I've ever had: We had one "tortilla" and one "morcilla" with some basic salad as lunch. I would not trade that for a Michelin three stars... read more

Moreover, in this sound family run restaurant, they are proud to offer young lamb (lechazo) obtained from the highest quality suppliers in the region,... More

I was travelling around Spain last September and I must confess in this restaurant I've tasted the best Spanish omelet ever! Actually it is famous for it and also for its lamb, roasted in a wood fire oven they have in the kitchen. There is also a wide variety of Spanish wines to be enjoyed. Finally, the desserts combine tradition... More
