To the point, food was great and the ambiance excellent, the attention as well and it´s well worth the price. However I think that due to the timing and also due to the types of food, it´s not really a brunch but rather an early lunch (for Spanish people).

They open at 13:30, so unless you are not me....you´ve got to have had breakfast before, ( there´s no way I´m going to wake up even let´s say at 11am and then wait until that time to have a first meal)...normally brunches should be starting around 11ish tops? Additionally, there was very little breakfast food (I seem to recall some eggs somewhere).

Anyways, they had calamari with rice that was awesome and also they had bogavantes (type of lobster), they have a guy right there cutting jamón serrano, paella, cochinillo and all great Spanish delicacies. You get your fill with cava or beer (I´m sure there are more options but that´s what I had), the waiters are good and everything is accompanied with a pianist playing nice music in the back (sorry no lady Gaga). Most of the people attending were locals.

It was a great experience and would return but I would definitively would eat my breakfast before ;-)

PS
I heard that kids are half price but did not ask up to what age.

I ate in the hotel restaurant each morning.It was reasonable but certainly not exceptional.They served tea in coffee pots so there was only just over one wilfully whereas I like at least two.
I didn't much fancy the dinner menu so never had a meal there.

We ate at ElJardin our first night in Spain. We chose it because we were tired and jet lagged and didn't want to leave our hotel in search of somewhere to eat. What we got was a wonderful meal with excellent service. It turned out to be a memorable meal for us both. I'd definitely eat there again!

Breakfast buffet is sumptuous. Various local meats are a treat as are the pastries. Coffee con lecho is a pleasure and the cappuccino is delicious. Fruits are especially attractive and taste wonderful. Hummus is made on the spot.
