We dropped in for a quick lunch. Prices are reasonable, portions are huge. You'll need some Spanish although our waiter did have a little English. Staff was very friendly and happy. All in all a good place to eat.

On the corner adjacent to Il Giardino is a popular, unpretentious local cafe serving daily almuerzos, fast food, and fresh juices and batidos. Excellent value, reasonable food, and courteous service.
