We found this restaurant by chance whilst wine buying in this area. It is located in the Plaza de Espana and we were first attracted to the tables set outside. However when we went inside to ask for a table we were bowled over by the decor and atmosphere in this upmarket restaurant. It reminded us more of a romantic French bistro - beautifully decorated and the tables all had starched immaculate white table cloths. All the waiters had crisp white aprons and big smiles, making us feel immediately welcome.
The restaurant specialises in paella’s and there is a full a la carte menu. We however opted for lunchtime ‘menu del dia’, menu of the day, which at €12 represented excellent value for money.
Although our waiter told us the choice in Spanish, he did have limited English so we were able to understand what was being offered.
We started with a lovely fresh plate of salad followed by a starter which was essentially minced chicken with rice wrapped in lettuce leaves with a delicious tomato and cream sauce. For our main courses we had Dorada (sea bream) and pork filet and for our pudding, home made coffee flans. We had a delicious bottle of the local Laderas de El Seque wine.
This restaurant was a real find and we won´t hesitate to eat there again. It was certainly very popular when we were there, with both smartly dressed and casually dressed Spaniards.
