Probably the best and most filling vegan burger I’ve ever had. Lovely service! Got a free bag of kiwi fruit. Just excellent. Money very well spent.

Here you can get fresh, tasty, healthy vegetarian food - and they even serve soya sauce on demand!
The coffee is one of the three best coffees I had on walking the camino!

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant and the owner was charming and welcoming. The food was a nice alternative to the usual food on offer in the main street restaurants.

Nine of us booked a table at this restaurant, having read the reviews, wanting a variety of options including vegetarian.
The waiter explained the menu to us in English and then brought the Chef out to meet us. She is a lovely lady. It was immediately obvious that she loves food and cooking and is passionate about it. She talked us through various dishes which the waiter had suggested we might like. We became so keen to try various starters that, in our enthusiasm, we ordered too many! However, they were delicious. The red cabbage salad with goats' cheese was great, as were the grilled, and slightly spiced, vegetables. We then moved on to various main courses, including Iberico pork, scallops and a veggie burger - all wonderful and certainly the best veggie burger I have ever had (and I have eaten quite a few)! Of course, we then had to have a dessert - chocolate cream, chocolate cake (which had the added tastes of lemon and honey) and 'the best rice pudding ever'.
We tried to book a table for the following night too but they are closed on Sunday evenings.
Do not miss out on a visit here if you are in the area. It is rare to find home cooking this good.

Blogs about the Camino frequently mention the difficulty of finding vegetables in Spanish restaurants. This restaurant truly stands out, with multiple interesting choices of soups, grilled vegetables, vegi burgers, and salads (all delicious), in addition to more usual choices such as pulpo and scallops. Friends and neighbors of the proprietor had warned that Pilgrims want the typical Spanish menu and don’t like vegetables. So glad she didn’t listen to them! Highly recommended for a change of scene.
