It is very difficult to rate Bodega Cigalena. On one hand it has an amazing wine (bottle) museum with walls and ceilings decorated by some rare old wines and the food certainly is good. On the other hand it is truly expensive to eat here....More

Very good service, with English speaking waiters who were there to help with the menu. BBQd octopus was a highlight on the charcoal fire! Dessert was phenomenal - we had a selection and all were delicious. A couple of vegetarian dishes.
