We had stewed potatoes with lamb for first course, then stewed lamb with potatoes for main . . . our fault the choice was bad!

But the meat had not been cleaned and was full of fat and gristle, as well as being cold.

Service rather hit-and-miss too.

We liked that all the dishes are huge and relatively cheap and they all taste better than what one would expect from a place with a local feel to it. However, do go early for dinners as this place is a local favorite and without booking there might not be empty tables left.

This is an awful restaurant masquerading as a typical roasting house. The service is poor, careless (soup spilling over dish), and quality shameless (grissely meat, tinned mushrooms). I hope you can find something better in Baeza but I have to say the others did not look much better - the town is a tourist trap, until we all tire of their abuse. I wouldn't recommend to
my worst enemy.

During our three-day stay in Baeza we had diner at this place. To sum it up: Food is below average, very costly and the waiters are unfriendly and greedy. We hat potatoes with mushrooms as a starter (food was almost cold and mushrooms came fom a can) and fish as the main dish. The fish was pobably frozen before and not very tasty and the dish was arranged loveless.

It's a very touristic restaurant, aimed to get profit from the people who come to visit Baeza.

If you see it from outside, its like a tapas bar but if you step in and tell the patrons you want to eat, they'll guide you in a inner room.

The food is just basic, even the local specialties, and the price is ridiculously high, considering also the place and the average prices of the area.
