Went at 1.45 for lunch. Full. Popular with Brits. Asked if we could reserve a table in half an hour. No problem. Went for a drink and came back to find table reserved for us. Four courses wine and coffee. Very nice. Will go back.

For a decent Menu del dia, Juan Chara is lovely. It was lovely to sit out front and just watch the world go by as we ate in relaxed surroundings...

One bolognaise and one lasagne from the menu were extremely disappointing. The bolognaise tasted so sweet it could have been a pudding, the lasagne resembled a £1 supermarket creation from the chiller and tasted awful. We would not go back to this restaurant
