Stopped in for an almuerzo after reading the daily offerings on a board outside. The interior of this restaurant is set inside a bright courtyard of an old building. It was crowded with locals - most seemed to be professionals as almost everyone was wearing a suit. I thoroughly enjoyed spinach stuffed pasta served with a side salad, soup, juice and dessert (small slice of chocolate cake) for about $3.00. A most welcome change to the typical almuerzo consisting of rice, beans, (overcooked) chicken/beef/pork and mediocre soup. The atmosphere here is upscale, but still casual. Staff was professional and attentive.

Note address change, now moved to 7-47 Pres Borrero. Bigger space, separate area for dining and entertainment. Can still eat in entertainment area.
Great atmosphere. Daniel and his family are warm and welcoming. Shows and bands they sponsor are excellent.

Lots of great tapas selections - portions are large. Food is always flavorful.

Fantastic restaurant! Went on a night when they had a Flamenco show and dinner included for a very reasonable price. The show was outstanding, the food was very good and the sangria which is not included with the dinner was one of the best we ever had and we live in Spain part of the year. The owner Daniel went out of his way to make the evening a memorable not just for us, he checked with every table every so often to make sure all was going well. Highly recommend it.

Paella and other dishes that are very delicious. Wine and liquor. Lovely atmosphere. Usually has live music with a 3 story roof so the acoustics are really good. Breakfast Lunch Dinner and Buffets monthly. Lunch is about $5 to 6 all inclusive. Dinner averages about $12.

I love the seafood paella and all the tapas. The authentic Spanish cuisine is a treat. The details of the truly Spanish spices are ever so special. I have seen several events with various kinds of music and dance. Love the Flamenco dancing and the high ceiling has a great sound to it. Rock is great here too. The room is warm with heaters and the new menu is complete. The Crema Catalana was a yummy finish and I enjoy the bar too. I recommend El Meson Espanol in Cuenca.
