We stopped here driving back to Madrid, by chance. We noticed everyone was eating Jamon (Spanish ham) so ordered some ourselves. It was delicious. On the way out we found that it is made by the establishment. We ordered the lamb chops and a seasonal...More

Stopped for a drink and some shade after walking on the Camino a few hours. This is a pleasant looking spot across the highway from the Camino. The owner gives the impression that he would rather be somewhere else, doing something else. For the very...More

This place is separated from the Camino de Santiago by a busy road. The decor is smart and the menu is interesting. They also sell a good selection of high-end, locally made products including expensive wines. The owner obviously wants to attract a discerning and...More

You really get spoilt by the friendliness of the Spanish folk so coming across this little establishment was a shocker. I was only buying a sandwich to go and spent less than 10 minutes there but wow. Sandwiches looked huge, a foot long, so I...More

Like many other reviewers, we stopped here for lunch on a longish stretch of the Camino where there were really no other options. You get a sense of who is welcome from the large sign inside the door. The pompous owner treated his staff no...More
