I ate here with a large group of friends. We were given a private room covered in bullfighting memorabilia. The ambience was great. The food was even better. Baby sqid and peas sauteed in butter. I don't even like peas but this dish was fantastic. Grilled ox ribs, roasted cow tongue, and lots of local wine. They served us family... More

The snug bar and warren of rooms offer the ambience, suited waiters deliver stylish and amiable 5 star service and the menu delivers the substance and value for... More

Not the usual tapas and small food. But if if you wanna eat a good dish with fine meat this is your place. Friendly staff who don't speak english but hey you're in Spain.

I were at this place for a business dinner with 25 persons. The food was just great. We had three courses as starters, one main and one desert. We were served matching wine for the courses (perfect choice) and the service was just perfect. Of you do not want to eat tapas of paella, than this is the place to... More

This was a true find. The food is a bit more in price but the mixture of the surroundings and food make it well worth it. Everything on the menu taste great! This place is a must when you visit Albacete, Spain.

If you're done with the local tapas and are looking instead for a great restaurant to dine out, check out El Callejon. Staff were very helpful and spoke English and had an English menu which always helps. They're renowned for their steaks which were cooked to perfection. Our Salad starters had a fantastic dressing and portion large enough to share.... More

We went to this restaurant last night (Saturday night) for dinner and were not disappointed. We followed the wine recommendation from our waiter and very much enjoyed it. For starters we also followed the recommendation to have a sharing plate with cheese and ham, a small salad and some white prawns. The tomatoes were absolutely delicious and the prawns the... More
