“Terrible service, lousy food, incorrect bill!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We specifically went here on the recommendation of the young lady at the hotel Duques and were disappointed. We waited until after 8 so we could order something other than the Pilgrims Menu. The food was horrible, served with about 10 cold remnants of someone else's French fries. The salads were ok. The service was ambivalent at best and when we received the bill, the fellow made a point of making sure he appeared to look it over to verify it was correct......except we were overcharged for one extra dinner and extra wine. It was partially corrected and it wasn't worth the extra effort of arguing. Beautiful setting but don't bother with this one. They don't care about the food and they blatantly will rip off someone when they feel they can.

“Maggots in food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

I ordered revueltos Riojana (scrambled eggs Rioja style) and it came crawling with small white maggots. At first I was so taken aback, I thought that perhaps this was a local specialty, but when the waiter went pale and crossed himself I realized this was not good...at least they had the good graces to cancel the bill...
