We chose from the sharing menu including the aubergine with honey and enjoyed every bit of it. The menu del did looked excellent value and the wine was also excellent. Would definitely return.

Had dinner here and enjoyed it very much. Nothing special in the cuisine but food was tasty and good quantity. Would eat here again if in the area.

Had dinner here if you can call it that. Prawn salad with tinned fruit on, 4 prawns barely edible. Followed by what looked like a microwaved frozen chicken breast which was inedible. My husband had quiche which was ok, followed by pork with an orange sauce that tasted like tomato soup. I would definately avoid this place.

We dined there a couple of days, and the reservation was made on Messenger, good for my limited Spanish! The bar is lovely and clean, the waiters very smart and friendly. We had the set meal which had three choices for every course, and it was all excellent, obviously freshly cooked. Only slight complaint, the tables are too small! Well... More

My son, who lives in town, says this place has the best coffee in town. I think I have to agree. We stopped in here for breakfast and I was pretty happy with the coffee and the food. Service was also very good. I would recommend this place. I actually wish we had gone here for dinner one night, as... More
