Promising entrance - large open BBQ and pots of stews bubbling away - you just point and pay for what you want (after a rough translation). But the food was just not good. Bland and hard to finish. We went away hungry...

We stayed in El Cachi and decided to dinner locally. some friends had recommended this place, where we had a very nice lamb, with an excellent local wine.
