My wife and I stayed at the El Convent 1613 for one night on our way to Barcelona. We decided to eat dinner at their restaurant. It was a bit pricey, but the setting was quite elegant and the food was delicious. There were plenty of local dishes on the menu and we enjoyed the food and the experience. We... More

As the name suggests this is an old convent building, complete with shady cloister. It's a special place for a special occasion. We were child free for the day and celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary here. From the moment we arrived we felt special. We started with a drink in the cloister which was cool and shady with lovely plants... More

This is one of those rare places that enchant from the moment you arrive, beautiful old building carefully retored and adapted to use as a hotel and restaurant, the food is lovingly prepared and preseneted, the modern hotel extension blends well with the original convent.

Very delicate and well presented meal.The local wines are OK, the best that one can recommend is the local oil, it is produced in the area and in different varieties. I recommend the Picuant, very tasty.

You won't be disappointed. The setting is beautiful and exquisitely decorated. The service was excellent. The food was top notch and they did not skimp on the portion size. We ordered the Ternasco del Horno (lamb baked with potato, onion and tomato), which was phenomenal, and the Spring lunch special which came with a salad (strawberries, avocado, roasted macadamia nuts...

The setting is quite extraordinary and the service is truly nice. The food, however, is not superlative and therefore the place seems overpriced. For instance, the cheese in the goat-cheese salad was simply supermarket-grade chèvre (having way too much of it did not make up for its so-so quality). The entrecôte meat could have been better. We enjoyed the meal... More

My wife and I dined here while on a driving holiday through Aragon on the way to Barcelona from Valencia. The town itself seems a bit overlooked considering the beauty of the medieval centre and the church and ermita above. The dining at El Convento was also superior. The menu had influence my decision to stay there at the hotel... More

We return every year to this area due to its proximity to Motoland (motorcycle racing). After dining at this place we asked to see some rooms and we plan on staying here next time. The prices are excellent, both for the food and the rooms. The portions are quite big and I had trouble finishing my main course. My husband... More
