For someone who is not very adventurous when it comes to dining, taking a table for six in a restaurant that actively makes a point of not having a menu was a risk. However, the personality of the restauranteur on first entry made the risk one worth taking - and it's one we were all very pleased with.
The three course €15 a head meal (at lunchtime at least) comes with choices. However, the options were hard to decipher precisely because there was no menu and the owner spoke little English (but to be fair, we were in HIS country and we spoke no Spanish). However, when plates are brought out for other tables they are shown to diners and so the gamble was not hard to take.
The food was excellent. I had salad with cheese, then perfectly cooked and tender entrecôte steak, followed by a caramel coated thin-layer cake. I was a happy diner. Others had shellfish with shortcut pasta, perfectly cooked sea bass, and mango sorbet with a melt-in-the-mouth mini chocolate pudding.
The service is wonderfully slow and there is no pressure selling of drinks. It seems to be the case of 'if the diner wants it they'll ask'. The owner is clearly very passionate about his restaurant, the food his wife cooks, and he loves families (our two families had a teenager each).
All in all, this restaurant was the best we've experienced in this holiday which included Valencia as well as the Costa Dorada. I have no axe to grind and would heartedly recommend it, especially if you're a fussy anglicised diner like me.
