Yea, this was pretty lousy for us Anglos. I’m going to try and avoid the obvious comparison but the waiter was arrogant and couldn’t be bothered. No English menu and we forgot our printout. Lots of stuff though with exotic names; must be local specialties....More

We had to wait a while for service, but it was friendly and efficient once we got it. The pork selections were good, as was the lamb. The meal was very expensive, and not necessarily worth it.

We chose this restaurant as it was in our guidebook and a very short walk on a cold evening from the Parador where we were staying (excellent). What a mistake! It was Friday evening but the place was nearly empty. Our waiter was off-hand, bordering...More

Although the restaurant was very nicely decorated,my starter was frozen in the middle,then my main course was served with stone cold chips,maybe the kitchen was having a bad day!

We like the steaks ("Retinto") and we like the quail salad. Wine is also decent. The atmosphere is like one of those tabernas where there are posters of bullfighters everywhere and waiters are rough looking robust guys who don't mince words and just go ahead...More

The terraza looked attractive, but everything else was poor. The waiters were surly, and lunch for 4, consisting of the usual tapas of croquetas, chorizos and salad cost over 60 euros. There is a 10 percent surcharge for sitting on the terraza.

After checking the Tripadvisor reviews, I went to this restaurant in early January, for lunch. After having a bad time finding the restaurant (we had a map, but still no one seemed to know about the restaurant or the street it was in), we eventually...More

Really good value and a great atmosphere. Don't go there if you are a vegetarian or anti bullfighting. And if you are one of those people who likes to try things they haven't had before, don't be tempted by the Morros de Retinta ... gelatinous...More
