Just had a beautiful lunch at Bar El Tilo, stunning setting in the winter sunshine, friendly gracious service, live music from an accomplished trio as we are. Highly recommended!

My parents and I enjoyed a quiet lunch here before most of the tourist buses came through town. We really loved the platter with different meats on it, and the nice views of the plaza and town.

Had lunch here. Menu del dia, 11 euros a pop, including drinks. Good food, entertainment provided by bagpipe player on one table. Good service, busy with locals, always a good sign.
