High quality innovative cooking in really pleasant surroundings. The salad with scallops and prawns was impeccable and the slow cooked lamb was outstanding. The desert, a barbarois de fresa was skilfully made and delicious. Short but high quality wine list. The Habla de Silencio was...More

A quiet night, but the food was excellent, service quirky but fast, and the bill was not eye watering. Of course the red wine was served as cold as can be, Spanish style.

This restaurant looks lovely from the outside, is clean and smart inside, and is in a great location. The food and service however is a let down. We enjoyed our complimentary fish pate (after a long wait), and the gazpacho was OK but nothing special....More

El Dropo is not easy to find but it is worth the search. Located at the corner between the Plaza Grande and the Plaza Chica, the small tapas bar doesn't look like much, but that is just the ground floor. The restaurant is one flight...More

Lovely restaurant in a great location. This is a stylish and beautifully retored restaurant right in the centre of town. The food was excellent and the waiter could not have been more helpful and attentive. We would definitely go when we are in Zafra again.
