“Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband had the black pudding and apple compote he enjoyed it but the portion was very large enough for two. We both had suckling pig for main course it was nice but the potatoes were awful and no vegetables no dessert and half a bottle of wine was 82 euro. Don't have the bread you will break your teeth asked for butter it arrived at the end if the main course

“A dinner with friends”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Poor service . Steaks under-cooked . Returned to Kitchen twice but still raw . bread hard,also food a little pricey. a group of Spanish people came in shortly after us , the staff seemed more interested in serving them and we felt an inconvenience to the staff.

Nuestros camareros tratan a todos los clientes por igual.
En cuando al punto de la carne, si no se nos indicia como se quiere, se entrega al punto, es posible que ustedes estén a costumbrado a la carne mas hecha y no hemos tenido ningún inconveniente de preparársela según sus gustos. Lamentamos que se haya sentido marginado por la atención frente a un grupo español, pero nada mas lejos de nuestra intención. Les pedimos mil disculpas.

“very slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I called to make a reservation for 6 people at 3pm. They asked me if it could be 2:45pm and I said fine. We arrived at 2:45pm but 30 minutes went by before they even took our order. We didn't receive our starters for another 15 minutes. I got the sense that they were understaffed that day. They didn't have a set menu but they did let us share the huge steaks. They were also fairly slow to deliver the bill. The food was good and the interior patio was cheery. I can't give Las Cancelas anything more than an average rating based on my first visit. Maybe the service will improve next time.

“A dinner with EU friends/colleagues”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

A working dinner in this nice location suggested us by locals. We tasted various local specialties: I had a good gazpacho, a bit too salty grilled octopus and a very good lemon sorbet with cava. The friends judged quite good the cod, the steaks (too big!) while the castillana soup was probably not a good choice in summer. Overall on average/good food and the personnel was really kind.
