Their website suggests that a meal at Casa Consuela is a gastronomic delight not to be missed if travelling in northern Spain. Perhaps one should not judge on a sample of one experience, but here it is:
The restaurant is in a 1970's time-warp, and not in a good way. The restaurant does not upon until 21:00. Before then the only option is to wait in a 'transport cafe' type bar full of old blokes watching football on the telly.
Staff are indifferent. Service is very poor. With the exception of a barely acceptable steak, the food was dreadful. For example, a €9 starter 'special asparagus' was anaemic tinned asparagus served cold with mayo from a jar. The 'Russian Salad' was even less appealing!!
Total price for a two course meal for two was €90 so was not only by far the worst meal we had in Spain it was also the most expensive. And it left my companion with an upset tummy all through the night and most of the next day.
How Casa Consuela got their claimed reputation, I will leave you to work out.
The hotel building was more acceptable value for money, but nothing special. I'd describe it as 'tired travel lodge'. Nice artwork on the walls, but that isn't really why you choose a hotel. The advertised wifi did not work, and the place stank of stale tobacco.
Casa Consuelo is situated right on the main road, although set back behind a huge car park. It is very easy to find, by why would you want to?
In short: dreadful. Very glad we only stayed the one night.
