“APPALLING! Dismayed at previous reviews.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we took the time to search out this restaurant. We were appalled at how terrible it was! The waiter was not helpful at all. The menu item we wanted was "finished" even though it was early evening and the waiter was not helpful in choosing alternate items. The waiter was not helpful with wine selection and when the wine was brought, we were not asked whether or not it was to our satisfaction. Other people's entrees were brought to our table and there was confusion in explaining this. The partridge was almost inedible, dry and not flavoured, and was not accompanied by anything but a small amount of rice. The hake was not much better but arrived with a few side vegetables. The price for the meals was exorbitant for the quality and service!!! GO ANYWHERE BUT HERE! Needless to say, skipped dessert and cut our losses. Sat on terrace with city buses going by every 10 minutes.

“Great meal in La Orza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

It was our son 23rd birthday and we had a great meal at La Orza. The lamb was very tasty and the service perfect. We will definitely go back next time we vist our son who is studying in Toledo.

“Dining with el greco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

We spent a wonderful September afternoon sharing incredibly good food with friends. We had three salads which were very filling. They were artfully prepared. The Partridge breasts were dry but the lamb was excellent. The artichokes and calamari were superb. The waitstaff were
attentive. Carlos was great. We dined under white large umbrellas and the surroundings were attractive with greenery.

“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

After viewing the reviews felt I had to go as we were so near, but have to say I was disappointed. Location is good and service could not be better but the quality of the food is poor compared to other places who charge a similar amount.

“Had to go back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This restaurant impressed us so much we had to go back and we were not disappointed. Great quality, service and presentation, good wine list too. Reasonable prices and away from tourist traps, the menu includes tradional food of the area with some modern additions and presentation. Both the indoor and outdoor deck seating is comfortable and relaxed and has a nice outlook.
