We had a really enjoyable meal here thanks to a recommendation from the receptionist at our hostel. The place was full of locals with just a few tourists. The food was very good and the service fine.

Prices here are slightly higher compared to Mecusur. Service was good, but if you don't want to pay for a bottle of the expensive wine, you can choose for the vino de casa (not on the menu). The lomo here is quite pricey (compared to Mecursur). Ordered the entrecote, it was ok, requested for raw, it came out nearly medium raw (more on the raw side). Staff can speak some english. Only accepts Amex and Visa.

Decent food at decent prices. The location was also nice, near the old wall. Service was a bit slow.

It's family friendly and unpretentious, offering a wide selection of good food. It's a short walk outside of the historic district.

We had no pleasure in eating here. The food is very average. I wasn't expecting any frills but it doesn't even do the basics right. The waiters looked miserable the whole time. We didn't see them smile at anyone and everything seemed a chore.
