“Best food in town”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Beautiful restaurant both outside and inside. Despite food being more expensive than other restaurants in town, it was still great value and by far the best food we could find in Torla. The T-bone steak was enormous and cooked perfectly, as was the duck. Would definitely go back.

“great choice for a treat in Torla”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This was a bit pricier than we would usually pay for lunch, but having seen the reviews we thought it would be worth the money. We arrived as it opened for lunch and we were one of 3 families eating then. Booster seats were provided for very small children. We both had a menu (one casa, one especial) and the kids both had the children's menu, which was pricey but OK if your kids will eat it all! The adults menus were excellent and beautifully presented. My husband had the t-bone steak which was massive and cooked to perfection (one of the best steaks he'd ever had). Wine was included. This was a bit of a treat but we'll worth it for a delicious meal.

“Everything we wanted”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We went there for our hotel´s recommendation and were very satisfied. The home made salad was made of unusual ingredients but somehow they all went very well together. We asked for steak and was probably the best stake I´ve ever eaten in my life! Was perfectly cooked, succulent and I´m still dreaming about it sometimes.
Definitely recommended!

“Good food in a pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is a very good place to eat! Welcoming, cheerful and warm, on a cold wet day at the end of May: we had an excellent lunch in very pleasant surroundings. Everything was delicious, but the puff pastry with mushrooms to start is particularly recommended. Very good value.
