“Must-eat place within Laguardia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

As we visited in June (low season), Amelibia wasn't open in the evening during our stay in Laguardia, but we managed to visit for lunch. The restaurant itself is just outside the city walls, but a short walk from anywhere in town.

I would describe the food as modern Spanish. It used the fabulous local ingredients to make classic modern dishes. The portions were very generous. We both had huge starters and delicious main courses. For dessert I had cava with lemon sorbet which was lovely. Definitely the best food we ate within Laguardia.

“Great option in Laguardia!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

This restaurant is located just outside the city walls. It is very charming with a sleek decor. The views of the valley are amazing. Make sure if making reservations to request a table by the windows. The food portions were large so unless you are starving I would recommend sharing an appetizer and maybe even an entree. Another plus for all of us not totally fluent in Spanish is they have then menu in English as well.

Only negative is the staff didn't seem real comfortable with the wine list or at least their recommendation for us didn't seem to fit what we described.

Overall an amazing lunch and would highly recommend this as a meal if visiting Laguardia.

“Excellent Seasonal Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track hence, I think why we were the only people in there when we went ! Although a shame it did not spoil the meal, it was simply delicious, all fresh local produce cooked with a modern twist. The service was friendly and knowledgeable.
It's open every day for lunch and has great views over Rioja, it's only open for dinner at the weekend.
We would definitely recommend seeking it out this place !
