We like Torillo for all occasions.
Service, nothing to say, staff is friendly and efficient.
Food; nothing to say as well, wide choice, traditional flavours from Paella, to starters to share, 1/2 portions.
Ham is excellent, Oxtail croquettes to try.
Meat very good, they have a carbon oven to grill meat.
My wife likes the lamb chop, I like the Oxtail stew.
I would recommend to share dishes. For exemple Oxtail stew comes in 4 peaces so you may have one plate for two or three if you wish to have other things.

Not great at all. I’m a Spaniard through and through and sad to say that this place was a total let down. The service was ok though.

We ordered manchego cheese which was ok and patatas bravas to start. The bravas were not good at all. The sauce was just cold pasara and hot sauce mixed which is not a traditional brava sauce. Couldn’t eat the sauce so basically had chips to start.

The mains we had flamenquin and a pork fillet. The flamenquin was lather in sauce and quite greasy and heavy. The pork came out raw and I had to send back to get it cooked. When it came back out it was incredibly dry.

Avoid this place at all costs. It was quite pricey too for what we had. Very annoying when you see good reviews and then get a bad experience.

What to say about this restaurant ? frankly we have been going to this venue for a couple of years, and we have never been disappointed. I personally liked their Oxtail stew, traditional dish from Cordoba, their meat is excellent.
Tried recently their artichoke, just try, excellent.
Although it is not a restaurant on the beach front, their paella is very good and tasty.
Very good value for money.

We had paella with fish and a bottle of wine, 50Euro. The paella looked great with very big prawns, 2 for each of us! But it turned out that the rest was mainly rice made yellow, but no safran. There are lots of restaurants with far better food at a better price

My wife and I ate here last evening. Been before and pleased to fine the food and ambience still very good. After sharing an excellent revuelto we had the octopus special and carrillada (pork cheeks). Both were succulent and very tasty. A very enjoyable evening.
