I've been with my mother and we had the Lubina and Cogote de Merluza, both amazing cooked and delicious. Also, we tried the Pastel de Avellanas and Cheese Ice Cream, which were marvelous! Highly recommended!

Very good service, very good food. The best option is to have the main menu order, where you could taste different local dishes from the region.
