Great typical food served in a traditional way, thus creating the perfect environment to make you feel how Cuenca´s food was cooked hundred years ago. And of course Basilio, owner, makes you fell at home all the time, giving you some tips and advices of...More

Found this place due to tripadvisor recommendations otherwise we'd never have found it hidden up a back street. It's small, cramped even, with wall to wall photos of customers, and very Spanish. Two free tapas with every drink (even a small beer). They boast 155...More

I totally recommend this restaurant in Cuenca. You ask for some drinks and food is included. I was with some friends and it's perfect!

Typical tourist "passing trade" restaurant. In two months travelling SPAIN this is the worst place we have visited. Decor is brilliant, but the waiter was bad tempered and unhelpful. €7,50 for a tapas and it was not good. Neither was the white wine. Try the...More

We entered a really nice restaurant. We sat down and got presented with a menu which for us was in English. So with a cold beer in one hand and a menu in the other it was time to see if the reviews were right....More

It's a good idea to pay a visit and take at least a beer. You pay a bit more and get a lot of food for the cost of a "caña". All around this places it's a lovely environment and enough quite to middle aged...More
