My partner is vegetarian, so Spain can be tricky (ah, but there's always egg'n'potato). We had an evening meal here which was excellent, with an English menu so the trickier spanish words could be sorted out ("does that mean prawn or mushroom?"). Lovely ambience inside, and fully recommended.

This was a sensational meal with great service. No negatives at all. At the end of a fairly long ride including a puncture, it was a pleasure to find this gem.

We had lunch here as a small family. One member ordered the tasting menu for 25 Euros, and it truly was worth it. There were three first plates, three second plates, and three desserts. All were served in large enough portions to appreciate the taste of each. Excellent in every way. The other members ordered the sirloin steak and roasted... More

We went to this restaurant by chance and it was a nice surprise that we'll hardly forget! We hadn't had such an incredible meal in a very long time. The food was excellent with high quality ingredients and a range of meat and fish options were available too. I had the "Menu degustación", which is a fantastic choice to taste... More

This was recommended by our hotel and was everything they said it would be. The service and decor was lovely and very welcoming. The food we had was excellent....foie gras pate rivalling any we have had in Dijon and Lyon which I previously thought to be the best ever. Veal cheek and lamb ribs...superb. We are here for four days... More

The restaurant entrance descends a genuine medieval stairway (see picture) from the hot summer street. The restaurant is small (9 tables), cool and spacious with white table cloths and a fine view across the valley. Some elements of the restoration work is poor. There are fake beams with expanding foam oozing through the gaps. To start, I had an excellent... More

Nice setting and ambiance, but food was not up to par for the price. Arrived at 8:30 when they opened, so they had place for us even without a reservation. Saw others turned away.
