“A very good experience in a town with average restaurants”

We ate at this restaurant 3 times in the 2 days we stayed in this town. We find some of the other negative reviews a mystery. Perhaps it is the times we went or the owner(s) have taken heed of all the negative reviews? The restaurant was busy at all times whilst the other restaurants were often empty and we loved the classical music in the background. A lot of the other restaurants we ate at, including Gran Dugue, we found to be poor and just not worthy of returning to. This restaurant was well patronised by locals, French, English and other nationalities. We shared some of the daily menu plates which they were fine with. The seafood paella was very tasty and the duck nice. I also had some baby squid which was very nice and the wine was so so but no different to the other restaurants in this town. In fact, unlike Galicia or Asturias, if you want decent wine, then you have to order a bottle.

Overall, a lovely setting and a good experience in a town where the restaurants, we found, were in general just not up to standard.

The atmosphere and surroundings are lovely and our waitress very friendly and attentive. The food is reasonable value...15 euros for the 3 courses ....but not top quality. I enjoyed the fish soup and my husbands asparagus was tasty if a bit odd. My duck was tender but my husbands steak tough and his potatoes cool. I found the meal to be salty and was awake in the night drinking water. We will try somewhere else tonight.

We ate in the garden of this old building which was pleasant. The set menu was E15 which was was fairly standard for most restaurants in the town. My food was good if a little salty but my partner's steak was chewy. The wine was served in small portions but was of reasonable quality. Service was efficient but not particularly friendly. The whole time we were there the music was stuck on a single track. Overall OK but we wouldn't rush back. Our meal at the Gran Duque was better.

Esp. the bad & incapable service is an experience....
Price is too high for offered quality. But as there are enough tourists in town, they'll have nevertheless enough business.

It was peak holiday season and this restaurant was enjoying large crowds. I cannot understand why. The service we received was surly and discourteous - dishes of food and cutlery were virtually thrown on our table with no acknowledgement to us. Not even a smile of some pleasantry. It was nearly impossible to attract a waiter's attention to have water refilled etc. The food was unbelievably bad. It was initially cold - which we returned. The replacement was merely slopped on the plate. Presentation gets a minus 10 out of ten. What we ate was tasteless and unpleasant. I could go on. The wine that was included in the menu of the day must have been the cheapest possible!! In so many other places where we ate the wine was usually a local variety and quite palatable. The amount poured into our glass just wet the bottom whereas in other places, by comparison , we were given a whole bottle to share. Steer clear of this place because there are so many others nearby that are cheaper but much better in service and food quality.
