The food was typical local food. Nothing against the taste, but the quantity offered on the plate was short compared to the price payed. We tried it because we stayed at the hotel and because of the views, but I would not specially recommend it...More

A smal restaurant with a fantastic look against the Paradore. Remember to ask for today's special. When we were there they had five extras and we ordered from that. Good prepared and good taste. Service was good this evening

Delicious dinner with interesting dishes and good list of wines of the region. Excellent service and very reasonably priced. We had the same table for breakfast and the views are stunning.

Great food and wine. Very clean with friendly staff. Make a reservation and ask for a table with a view of the river valley. Make sure to try the morteruelo and the croquetas. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We walked in without a reservation on a hot Wednesday night at 10pm, no surprise that the small (5 table) terrace was full and that there was a couple already queuing. Official closing is 10:30pm but we asked if we could get a terrace table...More
