Just read some poor reviews. They must have been in on the chef's night off. We looked at the a la carte, but opted for the set menu, which was good value at 20euro per person. I couldn't fault the food we chose, tasty, freshly cooked, without fuss or rush. We had a bottle of red wine all for 60... More

Really lovely location in heart of the city, surrounded by authentic Spanish restaurants. I had the menu del diá which was reasonably priced €20 for three course. The starter (croquettes) were okay, although tasted a little mushroomy, despite there being no mention of mushroom on the menu. I had the entrecôte for main, which was a large, tasty steak which...

I was very disappointed when visiting this restaurant. My first impression was good, the place seemed clean and nicely decorated, but unfortunately the food was not good. I ordered from the set menu, which offers three courses and a drink for 20€. First I got the wrong starter. I didn't want to cause a fuss, so I decided to go... More

I've never actually written a bad review - it's not normally in my nature. But this meal really was SO bad that I feel it would be neglectful of me not to share my experience. I've also never sent food back in a restaurant before, but I did during this meal. We were a group of four, and three of... More

This restaurant is bright and modern and serves delicious food. We loved the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and shrimp. It was so creamy, melts in your mouth. I would of given this restaurant an excellent review if it wasnt for the waiter who seemed rather rushed for no particular reason.

The main difference here is between the 20 euro fixed menu and the a la carte. My wife had the former and I ordered the Del Pastor salad followed by a steak which cost an extra 9 euros in total. Whilst my wife's meal was ok and did include a sweet there was a huge difference between the two meals,... More

The croquetas were a cut above the norm and the bacalao a la plancha was cooked just right. We ate here twice, once inside and once outside in the pedestrianised street. Staff very goo dboth times.

Menu del Día is €20 and sounded good, plus the decor and table coverings looked a cut above the rest. However, thefood was very average and did not in any way justify a €20 price tag. It was very disappointing.

Stumbled across this delightful restaurant that was empty of tourists but full of Spaniards with their families - obviously a favoured local. A comprehensive menu with plenty of fresh fish, some on display inside, and an excellent range of wines. Not speaking Spanish we were at something of a disadvantage but the table alongside us had some appetising dishes that... More
