A very traditional bar/restaurant with lots of bull fighting memorabilia. Good wine, beer and tapas. We returned for lunch 'Com partir', shared. We sampled the entrecote a la parrilla, quite rare but superb flavour.. Very much a local bar and tourist need not feel intimidated.

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...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,...More
