Fantastic Iberian meat platter for two and a great Rioja house red. Perfect after a busy week. Nice selection of deserts including a few sin gluten options.

We two dropped by for lunch at 2 p.m. on a weekday without making a reservation. Luckily we found a table in the empty dining room. Within half an hour most of the tables were taken, so I recommend booking in advance. The menu is typically Andalucian, with plenty of fish and meats cooked in the usual manner. There is... More

A nice local restaurant with good tapas and drinks. Excellent menu del dia which is outstanding value for money. Normally easy to park outside or close by. Worth a visit

Really friendly staff and gorgeous food. We almost didn't go there as it is on the roadside but don't let that put you off!

A great restaurant in a typical little Spanish town. This is a very rural location and the food was lovely. It was good to see that the locals came for lunch here and it was always busy around that time. Would certainly recommend.

We had coffee here in the morning, then popped back in the evening without a booking. The service was very professional, brochetta were very tasty and freshly prepared - a bit of a wait, but that proves the freshness. A great place to drink and eat a a VERY reasonable price.... and generally chill!

This is not fine dining but is very good for what it is. The range of starters/tapas is pretty good and the portions are large. There isn't a vegetarian dish on the mains part of the menu but they produced a selection of grilled/fried vegetables which the veggie in our group was very happy with. The service is friendly and...
