“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Real good food, shouldn´t all the restaurants be focused on this? This one is.

Amongst the starters excellent the "macaron de trufa" (truffle macaron), merluza con velo de soja (hake with a soy veil) on its perfect cooking point and with the soy giving a nice oriental touch. The pichon (pigeon) is juicy and crusty and to top it all up a succulent “flan de mascarpone” (marcarpone custard). Portions are not that big but big enough to leave you satisfied. Subtle food with modern touches and twists but not making you feel like if you were testing the new menu for the Advanced Science Congress.

Not a cheap place if you go for the “menu degustacion” but I think is worth the money you pay for. Otherwise you also have cheaper options at around 35€. Obviously not the place to go if you are on a tight budget but if you are looking for value for money and you want to treat yourself the place is definitely worth a try.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Fantastic food, great staff and a lovely room which was a real surprise given restaurant location above a small cafe.

Only downside for me was that we arrived early and instead of offering us a drink we were asked to come back in 20 minutes when the restaurant opened. We made our way to the small cafe underneath and nada beer, so not all bad then!

Our menu was fantastic and the courses just kept on coming. If you go to Zaragoza, go to this restaurant.
I have no idea what meal cost, my colleague volunteered to pick up the bill...but whatever it was, it was worth it.

“Ingenious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

We went to Novodabo after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor.
Highly recommended to try something new, excellent service and exquisite food.
It's quite an expensive place but with the menus you can get away at an affordable price(30 euros+drinks).
A must for a romantic dinner In Zaragoza!
