Many had recommended the Cochinille, suckling pig, and to have it cut with a plate. Had it but no plate cutting. It may have needed more people. The pate was to die for, the pig was ok, but not outstanding. Also had the queens beans...More

Traditional restaurant with great atmosphere, full all the time but we didn't wait to long for table. Everything is just wow. Service was friendly and helpful, excellent homemade wine, and incredible food. We eat ham for starter and pig for main. Amazing!!!

Great spot for a glass of wine and some tapas. They do a great house red with a side of jamón. Can get very busy but good atmosphere.

I would make a reservation for 2pm. You can arrive a bit earlier (1:30pm) have a drink at the entrance bar and wait to be seated. Go for the leg. The ribs are very fatty.
