The food was alright, but the waiter was definitely not friendly. Apart from the walls which will look exotic to any non-Spaniard, I don't see why we should eat there rather than anywere else.

Took a chance! But paid off big time! Great staff and value for money €10 and I even struggled with the starter! The restaurant is in an old wine cellar and is great for getting out of the sun!

The soup and pork cutlets were not very good, but the grilled chicken was OK. We ate upstairs because it was raining, and the waiter seemed overwhelmed by a new computer system. (We ended up having to pay cash.)

This place was recommended in Lonely Planet but in fact there was nothing very special about it. The tapas were average at best, ending with a very chewy piece of meat and some uninspiring chips. Service was fine and quite fast but there was a real problem with flies outside on the terrace, maybe because it's right next to the... More

A bar/restaurant that is dedicated to bullfighting. Strange place for a vegetarian to find themselves in! Nevertheless, the newspaper clippings that cover many decades and adorn the walls are interesting, though I can't say that I enjoyed the stuffed bulls heads very much. Outside there is a large terrace/restaurant. Inside it is a small warren of little seating areas. Didn't... More

Awful steak - inedible. Fawning waiter who became a nuisance. Dirty toilets. The outside terrace looked inviting but go elsewhere.

We enjoyed our lunch here. It was good value, with a reasonably priced menu del dia and good sized portions. The staff were busy, but we were served in a reasonable time. For starters we had a lentil dish and a dish of white beans, both very traditional Spanish dishes and ones we've tried before. Both were very tasty, especially... More

Restaurant clean and lovely atmosphere. It was very quiet and could talk easily with the family The starters were average, las croquetas were ok although I would not repeat them again I order carrillada which came cold but very good amount of retinto with chips and good salad The fish was a good portion but they put too much paprika...

Delicious food - typically Spanish - with posters of bull fights decorating the walls. Attentive service and reasonable prices.
