Small cozy restaurant. The appetizers are great and the main seafood courses are fresh. The paejas are big enough for 2 or even 3 people.

Our dinner was relaxed, absolutely delicious and the service was both prompt and charming. We will definitely return to sample more of the excellent food choices. We appreciated the complimentary fish pate appetizer and the mint liqueur finale. I hilt recommend this place.

The charming, tasteful surroundings (and lightning) is only the beginning of an experience you won't forget lightly. The owner and his very skilled and friendly staff over-deliver throughout your meal. From little amuse-bouches to the aubergine starter to the main dishes (trucha navarra and an amazing steak) and the desserts, you'll be happy with every choice you make. In an... More

I entered thanks to this app. The place is stuffy an there is a peculiar smell lingering in the air, I cant quite place my finger on it. It is not game breaking but it lingers. The decoration is dated and the tableware is not impeccable. The service is great, the waiter is friendly, helpful and on point, always checking... More

Receipt of guests, attention of waiters etc is all very good. The wine list is long and not too expensive. But why not 'very good'? Simple, because the cooking is not up to top end level. For example: the salad 'El Meson' is named after the restaurant and than you do not expect (and want) pineapple from a tin, corn... More

We found this place on tripadvisor and we are grateful, because we had some of our best meals of our Argentina-Trip in this place! We ate there two nights in a row and it was consistent both times. This is a family run business - the husband runs the floor, the wife the kitchen. The place is cosy and decorated... More
