The view is great; the fried eggs with ham and potatoes were quintessential Espana; and the €10 bottle of local wine made the evening perfect. We met the owner and she recommended the brownie and ice cream for dessert and it was a fine recommendation. Very satisfying experience and quite affordable for the setting high above a beautiful cliff.

Stopped in for an early lunch (ordered a mixture of tapas). Good choice for vegetarians. Food outstanding. If you want a table by the window - and you do - it is worth making a reservation. Friendly service. Highly recommend!

We had the buffet breakfast here. What a beautiful Posada! We decided to stay for their breakfast and it was very nice to be there and enjoy the views into the gorge. It is a cold breakfast, serve yourself, and 9 euros. I guess we paid for the experience... If you don't need a big breakfast, you might like to try this one.

Reasonable, good quality, food and wine. Views from some tables across the gorge, and a small terrace that is open in good weather. You will need to book!

Would recommend getting here early for dinner and getting the best spot on the terrace as we did. The view is magnificent. We were also really impressed by the food and the Canadian lady who runs the place is great.
