Chose two main course meals and neither were as specified on the menu. When we spoke to the waitress, she explained that some of the ingredients were missing in the kitchen so were replaced with others!! This was totally NOT acceptable as the meals were spoiled.

Good afternoon, We understand your disappointment. We should have previously warned you about the lack of ingredients in our kitchen. We are very sorry. We hope we can count with another visit in order to make a better impression. We again offer our apologies. Regards, Paula. More

Really lovely place, modern and well put together. We ate here on New Year's Day.. Everything else was closed so we were lucky! The staff were lovely. Had the pâté which was so good. Not the biggest dinner selection but still good. Fairly expensive but it's more than your average place to eat.

lovely ambience, accompanied with a great menu. It has a special vegetarian section which was noteworthy. Excellent service, also spoke great english. I enjoyed the deserts and irish coffee at the end. Road is a bit noisy but you soon forget that.

In this village you would expect the typical tapas crowdy bar with "jamones" drying on the ceiling but here you will be comfortably seated with a nice view on the valley. Typical tapas from the area you could find of course but also more refined (but also more expensive) dishes. To be recommended for dinner.

Very nice atmosphere. Food reasonable but expensive. Service, although friendly, is not very competent. Maybe a good place to take a drink at night.

Thank Afonso G
