We ate here on a Saturday evening attracted by its proximity to the Parador where we were staying and being unwilling to face trekking around the old town. This is a spacious place with picture windows offering a view down the hill. It makes the dining area light and airy. The restaurant was busy but the very professional staff coped admirably to the point where they came close to being over-attentive. We were coming to the end of almost two weeks of Spanish restaurants and I think we were jaded so we wrestled with the menu and settled for tried and tested options. The result was well prepared food which met our needs. Gazpacho soup served with crispy ham rather than chopped veg was fine and my stuffed squid, despite the distance from the sea, was probably the stand-out item.
There is apparently a second area specialising in tapas and I can see how the location outside the city might make that a useful stopping-off point. The restaurant has a small parking area which wasn't full when we were there and is easily accessible by car. If you want to avoid some of the difficulties of getting into and around the old city and particularly if you are in a nearby hotel this is certainly worth considering.
