Immediately we went into this restaurant, we liked it. Relaxed, fairly busy (compared to any other restaurant at lunch or dinner time) and just sort of, easy. And no pushiness with the service and/or waiting staff. So, generally, a good experience. If you happen to be in that neck of the Santiago woods, do go there.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Santiago and I always come here when I'm in town. They have an excellent midday executive menu at a reasonable price. Their specials are great. I had the jabal( wild boar)i and my friend the cabrito(goat). We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and look forward to coming back. It is only steps away... More

We ordered pork and beef. The first was cooked during 6 hours in the oven and the second was grilled in its right point. Excellent service

This joint has a bar you can sit at before you ‘retire’ to have something to eat. Good selection of beer & well stocked bar which is important to chaps like myself. Waiters were attentive and listened to my broken Spanish. The owner lady speaks English and German so you won’t get caught out if you are in doubt. The... More

The service is excellent, the place is clean, nice and good looking. But, the food is not to good, the Paella is overcooked, and the chorizo could be better and also the goat. The sangria was good.

Atmosphere was very good and the place was very busy so thought we would try. We ordered the paella which, after two mouthfuls turned our stomachs upside down. The food was barely warm, must have been sitting in the pan for hours upon hours. It resembled more rice pudding than paella. In a word disgusting, also there was no apologies... More

There are a variety of "tapas" to taste. Shouldn´t miss the classic Tortilla de patatas and to drink a nice pitcher of Sangria. A real nice atmosphere sorrounded by locals and many spaniards. Waiters really earn their tip, don´t hesitate to ask about the specials or doubts you might have. A good quality - price relation. If you don´t have... More

Had a lovely Basque meal here for dinner. Ordered some pintxos, small tapas-like plates at the bar. Pan con tomate and garlic with jamon serrano. Also some tiny grilled chorizo sausages. We also ordered Pulpo a la Gallega or grilled octopus Galician style with olive oil, potatoes and mild pimenton or smoked paprika. All were delicious. Wine selection was decent... More
