“Excellent service and portions, so-so food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Don't be put off, this is an ok restaurant, just not 5 stars, and I don't want to continue what seems to be a penchant for people to give 5 stars unless they are really unhappy. We were not really unhappy with this place, just not thrilled. The food was ok, price good, portions huge, and server very good. We were just hoping to find something special, and this was not it for us. We've heard so much about food in northern Spain being among the best anywhere, but the only exceptional food we found was in Barcelona at Espai Sucre. Just bad luck? We found this place decent but ordinary.

“Great value and incredibly good food”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had a fabulous meal at La Villa! The menu del dia for just 15 euros featured three courses, plus bread and a drink. They brought us an entire bottle of water and a bottle of wine as our "drink" at no extra price. For the appetizer, we had the mushroom risotto, which was more risotto than mushroom, and the local bean stew with pork, which was delicious. My pig knuckles and my husband's sea bream were beautifully cooked and artfully presented. For dessert, an apple tart and flan. Yum...and an amazing bargain for what you get.

“Good food, good value”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Good variety, very good value food. €15 menu included a starter, main course, dessert, wine, water, bread and coffee. Very good service, friendly waiter ( even though we did the usual British thing of arriving just as they had opened in the evening! ). Deserves its placing as Tripadvisor No1 restaurant in this town.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were booked into the Parador Gil Blas. when we were walking round
The village we saw La Villa and liked the look of the menu and the restaurant
So we went back later that evening.we asked for a table for 2 .and thought
We would be going upstairs as it look really nice.Instead we were taken
To the opposite side which looked like a cafeteria .then we ordered the menu
Del Dia .there was no one else in the room and it was very cold.which was not very
Comfortable.The food was nice plain and good value for money,we will not
Be going back again.no atmosphere .

Lovely deco and great service.We had a menu del dia (pork and sea bream) Portion was very generous and it was good homely simple food. Pork was a bit over cooked but my boyfriend still enjoyed it. Great value for money.
