The ambience is more a bar than a restaurant - in fact the restaurant is really a corner of the bar. However the welcome is warm and genuine, and the service friendly. The food was good, but not gourmet. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the service. It was good value for money. I would recommend the restaurant to... More

Loved this place...nothing better on a warm, delectable night than sitting al fresco eating delicious food, a nice cold refreshing vino blanco and being served with real genuine amiable service. A really friendly and atmospheric restaurant, with good food at a reasonable price. Great location too, in a quaint and pretty village with magnificent views.

Trato insuperable, cordero cojo...nudo. Nos guardarin sitio en la terraza llamando con poca antelacion. El encargado y las camareras son todo lo educado que deberia ser la hosteleria en este pais. Triste que solo sea en Medinaceli donde te traten tan bien. Pedir cordero, carpaccio y la tarta de queso Awesome lamb and best service. The manager and the waitress... More
