“Great food - packed at the weekend!”
Reviewed January 23, 2011

We have eaten here many times, and it's one of my favourite restaurants in the area. It's tucked away on a corner off the main street, just at the end of the pedestrianised part, and is charming inside, with two open levels and old wooden farming memorabilia hanging from every wall and ceiling. The first thing you notice is that it is packed with locals (everyone knows the staff!), but it is very welcoming, the staff are lovely, and warm and cosy (noticably warmer upstairs, noticably colder near the door), and no piped music - there's so much chatter you wouldn't hear it anyway. At the weekend it is essential to book, especially Friday and Saturday evenings. The food is plentiful, be prepared to be stuffed! There's a good wine list and excellent fish and meat, homemade deserts (try the incredible cheesecake), and I personally love the steak here. During the week at lunch time they do a reasonably priced menu del dia too (around 16 Euros), which is always varied and tasty. There's no designated parking, but there's plenty to be found on the other side of the river.
