“Don´t even think about it!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Our preferred Restaurant in Toledo was closed Sunday (most Restaurants in Toledo are) so we walked through the pedestrian street of Toledo and came upon this one. We wondered why the restaurant was empty at 9.30 pm, but now we know why. A few people were watching football at the bar in front but the quite big restaurant at the back was complete empty. Ordering the Daily menu, 2 cannon balls were thrown on the table. Looked like bread but could kill anyone if they were thrown at them. Out went the bread to be replaced with 2 flutes. Next came, Macaroni with Meat sauce, and more sauce than meat. Next. Entrecotes. Full of Grease, fat, blood and not even half cooked with something looking like chips swimming in oil. Off they went, back to the kitchen. We wouldn´t even touch it. In came 2 new ones, a bit better cooked and of a little better quality, the two first ones had none. Third. We had now given up on this restaurant and when being offered Ice-cream we went for that. 2 cones from the nearest supermarket were thrown in. 6 pack for 1.99 euro as we knew them from our local Carrefour supermarket, as we are using them ourselves for the kids. While we were waiting for the bill, two Chinese women had arrived. They were now busy cleaning their glasses and plates with their serviettes. Our bill (not cheap) was wrong and it followed everything else the way back to where it came from for corrections.

“Wonderful, fresh meal at great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

For about 10 euros we got the menu del dia - two large plates of fresh, tasty food, bread, wine, and a delicious chocolate cake. The staff obviously are proud of the place, and service was great!

“Ridiculously overpriced for mediocre food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2009

We visited this bar with some Spanish friends. They ordered in Spanish but when the salad arrived it was not what was ordered. It was sent back but, perhaps due to the complaint, the service then became very poor and things were litterally thrown onto the table! We had also ordered grilled lamb chops. When they arrived there were 10 chops with virtually no meat on them but we had ordered them so we ate them. We then asked for the bill to find that we had been charged 80 euros!! This was absolutely ridiculous given the quantity and quality of the food and the very poor service. Our Spanish friend discussed the billl with the owner who claimed that the chops were from suckling lambs; they may have been but they certainly were not worth 80 euros!! There are many excellent places to eat and drink in Toledo so go there and avoid this rip off joint - you will not be disappointed.
