If you are looking for a simple place to stop in order to eat genuine food for good prices, there you have to be! The restaurant was really cool, a little vintage, but definitely contribute to create a good atmosphere. We ordered a few starters, different types of fish dishes (sea bream, grouper, cuttlefish), water, wine and a dessert. The... More

Simple but authentic!!! I've been in this restaurant several time and I've always enjoyed it!!!! You should try cherne- boiled white fish served with olive oil and chilli, camarones- a kind of small prawns usually served as a tapa and sardinas asadas- grilled sardines. The rest of the dishes are also amazing. You should try what you feel!!! You can... More

Started with a huge house salad (6 Euros), more than enough for two people to share, followed by two white, meaty chunks of Cherne (9 E) and some excellent papas arrugadas + mojo sauce (3 E). The owner, correctly, suggested that the light and slightly chilled house red wine (4 E half carafe) would match the fish better than the... More

In this very old house we found a surprising nice little restaurant. We went there for lunch and were very positively surprised. Cheap and good dishes in very rustique and spartan environment. We had garbanzas, papas arrugadas and some sort of dried/re-cooked fish. Especially the papas arrugadas were splendid - Best quality papas negras served with a fresh homemade coriander... More

we wanted to try the local cuisine away from the tourist area, and we found it here. do not be put off by the exterior, there is food food inside. the house wine has a peppery flavor and the cherne (fish) was very nice.
