We ate here twice because it was so good. The restaurant is a little out of the centre and a little more trendy than most restaurants in the town, combining modern with distressed look furniture. Staff spoke good English. Food is excellent, with some more innovative touches. A deconstructed cheese cake sounds possibly more trendy than tasty, but it was top class. Fish is cooked to perfection - firm but juicy with a light touch on flavoring. The menu is limited and changes regularly.

Good restaurant in the suburbs of Biescas. Good choice with menu available in English (but questionable translation!). Good selection of wines and food. All our courses were very good, except for the “old cow” steak, which we thought meant Aged Steak, but in my case was tough and chewy, although my friends said their steaks were ok. Friendly and helpful staff.

What a great little restaurant. Over the river from most of the businesses and hotels in Biescas. But really worth the short walk! The staff were super friendly and introduced the new Autumn seasonal menu. Really good food with local seasonal produce. A great meal in a really nice atmosphere.

There are few good options for excellent restaurants in the Tena Valley and this one has some local and regular visitors attention. It is a case of in the land of the Blind the one eyed is king. The location is good and there is ample parking in the streets even for a weekend. Indeed, the restaurant was full and many people had to be turned away from this small local. The fixed menu changes with the season and this one was an uneven sort. The so called salmorejo was anything but. A thick tomato base soup with cream added would not be welcome in Cordoba. On the other hand, the salad with boquerones was good as was the baked cod. Indeed, ironic that the best were sea choices while the pork loin with a teriyaki sauce an unfortunate option dry and tuft. The decor was bizarre and the constant high level pop music out of tune with the pretense of upscale they seem to aspire. The service had to be called to attention three times to lower the volume as any pretense of a conversation was impossible. The service was rough and out of tune with a Michelin guide mention. In a second visit to Biescas it was impossible to find anything more refined in decor, ambiance and cuisine. So this may be the key to the popularity of El Montanes

We had dinner this saturday July 23rd. Excellent Menu, at a bargain price. We had Boqueron salad, a great Cod with peas and an outstanding apple pie. It has been a long time since I didn't have such a good home made Apple pie. Excellent service. We had a good time and will be back.
