Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we read other reviews which were all positive. Perhaps we just hit it on a bad night. Moderately crowded when we arrived. Only 1 waiter. 10 minutes for the slightly stale, tasteless bread to arrive. This place is noted for its tomato soup but when we arrived at 7:30 we were told it was all gone for the day. I ordered fish; my husband ordered veal. It took 20 minutes to get a small carafe of wine. It was cheap. Thank goodness because it was dreadful. My fish was OK but my husband's veal was absolutely inedible. He couldn't cut it. (1 bite and he was done.....which is remarkable because he NEVER leaves anything on his plate.) Everyone around us seemed to have the same interminable wait. The waiter (only 1 for the whole restaurant) was so rushed that he didn't have time to explain the various dishes and he seemed exasperated the whole night. We couldn't wait to leave. It was the worst dining experience in our 2 weeks in Spain and Portugal.
We ran into some of the other diners at our hotel in the morning. They must be more tolerant or resilient because they thought the chaos was fun and the food tasty. Maybe we just made the wrong choices.
