“Great value, great food, great hospitality”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Finding a restaurant open on Mondays in Leon is a challenge, so we were not expecting much. La Gitana surpassed our expectations. Although the 6 of us were the only ones in the restaurant they could not have been more hospitable and determined to give us a good meal. Our host who was also the chef delivered a superb meal. We chose local specialities as well as specific requests - the broth cooked turbot was a highlight as were the spicy marinated peppers, braised baby squid and hake. We also had a mix of delicious starters - iberico ham, mixed salads etc. It was all cooked to perfection and delivered with love and passion. It seemed a shame that there were only 6 of us to appreciate it. We would definitely go back. The only down side was the decor which could do with a little updating!
