The restaurant was spacious, cozy for the 22 of us, even though we had to sit in two large separate tables. The grilled deer was excellent, as was the assorted desserts. Nice place to enjoy

Popped in here 1 year ago during winter, and was immediately drawn to the inviting fireplace. The general look of the place was very nice, so I thought I'd pop up to check out the dining room - equally appealing ! Clearly a lot of other people thought the same as there were unfortunately no tables left (it was admittedly... More

First impression was great, having some beers and tapas in the bar while waiting for the table upstairs. It is a real mountain enviroment inside, with... More

This was more than a meal- it was an eating experience. Wonderful menu, we were beautifully guided by the owner not to order too much and he was right. The atmosphere, surroundings, host and food are exceptional. Look forward to a future visit.

The meat dishes are excellent. We tried a "pulpo a la gallega" that could have been better. The service is good and fast. The place has an elegant and traditional look upstairs. They also have a very nice terrace on the road.

Being British we were in Navacerrada looking for a restaurant that was open for dinner before 9pm...and on a Friday!. We asked around and we found it in El Portillon who hurried up their opening for us while we had a drink in the bar downstairs. That was the only rush that evening. We sat down to an exquisite range... More
