We ate here whilst on a day trip to Cercedilla, the restaurant was empty aside from the three of us so there wasn't much atmosphere on this occasion although I'm sure this changes when it gets busy!

Decided to try the Alacena after reading some very positive reviews on TA and it did live up to expectations. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. The 3-course menu for €16 was made available to us on a Saturday night at 9pm. Food was creative and delicious, service friendly (which in my books is always a big brownie point in... More
