After a long weekend in Valle de Bravo we decided that this was the best restaurant that we tried. Fish was fresher and so the octopus. Good selection of wines. Nice outside sitting

A somewhat disappointing experience. The party menu was already quite expensive at almost $80 per person. The food, which was not Spanish cuisine at all, was not bad, but was served cold. The waiter was over anxious to serve the wine (not included in menu),...had to ask to stop insisting on filling the glasses. The champagne (half a glass included in the menu) was third quality and was not properly chilled. With1 bottle of wine, 2 extra drinks and tip, the bill was over $125 per person! Would not return to this restaurant.More

This is a simple, yet excellent serviced restaurant. We tried the Pulpos a la Gallega, a classic, and of course, they have excellent paella. The best of all: They are SUPER pet-friendly!

I brought my 88 yr old friend and my wife having read the previous reviews. My 88 yr old friend is the most difficult person to please with restaurants. I am happy to say , we all loved the place. The owner of the restaurant...kept a polite, friendly conversation with us and we enjoyed his commentary and suggestions. On top of the consistent dishes served, the desserts were outstanding. I loved the clams that are included on most plates. The atmosphere in the restaurant and neighborhood of Avándaro in general are very charming, clean and unique. We look forward to returning in the near future.More

One of the new restaurants in Avandaro, VE has a small well balanced menu of Spanish food. Wine and spirits menu is also well balanced. Prices are very reasonable. Food is excellent. Mostly cooked at the moment, has the taste of true home cooking.
