This place was recommended to me by a local friend of mine. It is indeed a very spanish place with rather few tourists finding it. It is centrally located on one of the main roads, but not in one of the top tourist spots. And it is absolutely worth the detour. The welcome with a little cheese and a glass of wine is a nice surprise. But the food itself would not need this type of introduction. It is simply outstanding and far away from the traditional tourist preparation. My wife had a wonderful Zarzuela, while I really enjoyed my baby goat meat (quite some bones though, but wonderful taste). As a starter we had a wonderful dish with mushrooms in lots of garlic. Just outstanding in the making. This place turned very busy around 15.00, when we had finished eating and the ambiance was very spanish indeed.
The service was impecable also when the place got crowded. All in all - this lunch was a real treat. Next time we will certainly pay a visit to Isla Bonita again!
