This local place advertises on city maps, so you might think you get ripped off and should stay away, but please do allow yourself to be dragged to Jose Maria's. Locals enjoy tapas y cervezas at the bar. The restaurant offers a good choice for carnivores, pescavores and herbivores. The menu is traditonal with a fresh twist, which makes it a great choice for anyone visiting. We found that also many locals got in the restaurant for a meal. Portions are quite big, so come with an empty stomach if you're willing to have a 3 course meal and finish all of it. Typically, most tables order the little piglets that come served as an entire animal, smashed and cut with a plate. It's not as horrible as it sounds (even though for me as a vegetarian it's quite hard to watch), because it's honestly showing where the food's coming from, and all of the meat is eaten. In Spain, especially outside the big cities, you can be sure the animal has had a short, but nice life in the meadows, as opposed to animals whose meat is used for dishes in Dutch restaurants. Staff is a bit on the slick side but very warm & welcoming, very open to the shock & awe the piglets are causing. So, in short, Jose Maria is exploiting the regional kitchen style for the masses, but this has not let quality or hospitality down at all. Definitely recommendable!
