“If you don't check tripadvisor first...”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

...you may end up in a place like this.

The restaurant serves a 3-course lunch. We had Castillian soup for the first course, which contained an unidentifiable, slimy substance we later found out was bread. It didn't taste bad, but it was unpleasant to eat. For the second course, we had the suckling pig; it was OK, but nothing to write home about. The third course was dessert, straight from the box with canned whipped cream. We each had a bite and left the rest.

There are much better options in Toledo, so make sure you check reviews first. I won't make this mistake again.

“real local lunch fare”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

not a top restaurant, more of a cafe that you can imagine the locals using for lunch. 15 euros fixed price menu including wine and most was pretty good. I would specifically mention the white bean soup, it was very good. avoid the cod, too much in the way of sauce which probably worked to camouflage the fish. My 5 years old ate all his paella, so thumbs up there too
Go for the red wine, the white is not great. Service was typically spanish!
i would give this a go but don't expect a michelin star experience.

“Very Low Food Quality. Unfriendly. Dirty”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I was very disappointed to see that such "restaurants" are still open around the world. The first strategy is to cheat by presenting a different menu when you are asking for food inside (Menu 15), as when looking for options outside the restaurant (Menu 8,95)
First dish we had, salad / paella, was re-heated and cold, missing a good dressing or spicy ingredients. Main dish also reheated and really uneatable.
When complaining I had the chance to visualize the "kitchen". A very dirty place with a very unpleasant lady. No chance to get a proper reclamation. I doubt the play legal.
All in all: never ever.
I am very disappointed about spanish service. Its really a pity

“Poor quality.”
Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Paella - cold, undercooked, 1 piece of fish/prawn. Beef mains incredibly chewy, and simultaneously over and undercooked. "dessert" was still in the plastic packaging from the supermarket. Avoid.

“Small and friendly”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We went into this restaurant because we were standing about 20 metres from it when a very heavy rainstorm started and we were taking shelter. We just ordered a drink as it was a little eaarly for lunch. However, before we had finished our drinks the first diners had arrived and their food looked and smelt very good so we decided to stay and eat.

It was a very pleasant lunch, with a wine much better than we wwould have expected for the price, Both the starters and maincourses were good and came in good-sized portions, though the desserts were a little disappointing, being standard suermarket flans and ice creams.

However, while I would not recommend it for a special meal, for good family-style cooking it was a very good meal for the price.
