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
