Overall it was not that bad. However I must say their vegetable risotto has a very strong and unpleasant flavour and the waiters seem to be really unhappy. The only good thing about this place is that I find it quite cozy.

Appeared to be a nice neighborhood place with locals. Had several dishes. The croquettes melted in my mouth, the tacos were heavenly and cheesecake topped it off. Bill was a bit on the high side. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here last night. It was very expensive for the level of the place. It’s classic tourist trap, a jug of Sangria was €20. The portion was very small for the price. Definitely avoid and try another place!

Big culture shock for me to find most restaurants & shops are closed on Sundays! After 30 mins of wandering around, I stumbled upon Casa Varela! Looks like only the chief speaks English! They do have a big version of the menu in English on...More

The food was nice, but not exceptional. The service the first time was great and the second time lack lustre with a feeling that you were an inconvenience and that they were tired and wanted to go home!

We lived for many years around Placa Molina and Casa Varela was our bi-weekly treat. The food is simple but authentic and the staff is exceptionally helpful. The terrace outside is great for late Sunday afternoon lunches, watching the world go by. Excellent wine and...More
