We were staying in the Cristina for a week and walked around on Monday evening to sample some more local flavour. It was 7-30 to 8-ish and the place was empty - there were five of us -and only two more people came in while we were there. The Spaniards tend to eat late of course, but there were no visitors there either.
The staff were pleasant, welcoming and the service was brisk and efficient. We were served some very good tapas and the wine, Spanish of course, was also good. The bread rolls, freshly baked, were really lovely. The Main Course selection was a bit limited for our taste; in the end one of us continued with the tapas-type fare (good), two had Chicken Curry and the other two had Cod which was accompanied by Chips.
The Chicken Curry was a disappointment. The young man, who made valiant efforts to finish it, said it wasn't "a real curry" at, all and "not very nice"; the girl was somewhat less forgiving and said it was "awful", with "very poor quality" chicken. She left most of it. They also had Croquettes which were "nice".
The Cod was good and nicely presented with a minute salad providing colour; the Chips were a disaster - pale, soggy and oily. As it was not our most successful evening, we decided to skip Dessert altogether and went elsewhere for Coffee.
We didn't bother going back there again during the week. You'll know the place as it has a pretty white cow at the doorway!
