Towards the end of our trip, we decided to eat here. It didn't look like much from the outside, but we saw some locals sitting at a table and that the parking lot was nearly completely full, so we gave it a go. We are very glad we did. While the inside was not much to look at, and the staff was a bit to get used to, the food was absolutely incredible. One of our best meals. My friend ordered the fish and chips, which was hands down the best ever (perhaps even better than what I had in Norway). The cod was so moist and flavorful I almost wished I had ordered that. I on the other hand ordered the secreto iberico, which was again incredibly tasty and cooked properly. The fries were also incredibly well done. I had been told earlier in the trip by another traveler that I needed to try the Spanish fries as it seemed to be a local specialty that they pride themselves on. I have to agree. The few fries I had on the trip were all way better than any American fry I had ever tried. This restaurant was no exception. They were cut a bit smaller than steak fries, but thicker than the fast food variety with a little salt. I definitely suggest giving this place a go. I know if we had known about it earlier, we would have come more than the one time we did.
