“Poor - Tourist trap”
Review of Meson Los Ancares

We went for the more expensive 15 Euro menu.The food was the worst I had eaten on a 2-week tour of Northern Spain. The trout soup wasn't too bad, but the rabbit was hard and inedible served with a very salty-spicy sauce. The rice pudding had under-cooked rice and my wife's Spaghetti Bolognaise had hardly any meat in it. The white wine was cheap tasting too, which is hard to do in this part of Spain.

My friend and I went for a dinner to this place durin the Camino de Santiago. We oredered one menu of 15 euros and a octopus outside the menu. As normal in this area, you get vine,bread and dessert included in the menu. The food was normal and nothing special. when we odered the bill and the price was 42 euros. Immediatelly we daw that something is wrong and complained. Btw, you could not see anything from the bill since there we only bunch of numbers and letters with wrong price. Waiter said that he accidentally put someting on the bill and lowered the peice for 3 euros. Still something was wrong and we made the bill ourselves by comparing the prices from the menu card. Again waiter said he accidentally put something on the bill and lowered the price. I guess we were taken as being the dumb turists. Check your bills if you go to this place.

What a wonderful afternoon we had at this fantastic restaurant on our Camino walk. After a hot tiring 24k walk we relaxed with fantastic food and wine. We spent a lot of time chatting to our friendly waiter who couldn't be more helpful. We were checking our next nights accommodation and thought we made a mistake and booked it 140ks in the wrong direction. He got on the phone and sorted it out laughing and helpful. An absolute Gem. Would love to return and highly recommend. In the city centre it's a great place to see fellow Camino walkers stroll in. Thanks so much!

I don't understand the bad reviews of this restaurant. I had one of the best meals in Spain here. The trout soup was very good and the rabbit was absolutely fantastic. What set it apart however was the host. He was friendly. His command of a little English combined with my command of a little Spanish made the meal perfect. Also, his after dinner herbal liquor of the house was fantastic as well. Well worth the 16E that the meal cost.
