Awful steak - inedible. Fawning waiter who became a nuisance. Dirty toilets. The outside terrace looked inviting but go elsewhere.

We enjoyed our lunch here. It was good value, with a reasonably priced menu del dia and good sized portions. The staff were busy, but we were served in a reasonable time. For starters we had a lentil dish and a dish of white beans, both very traditional Spanish dishes and ones we've tried before. Both were very tasty, especially the lentil dish.

For mains, we had homemade meatballs and sole in a tomato sauce. My husband enjoyed his sole and my meatballs were really great, especially after the disappointment of the homemade croquettes in Badajoz the previous day.

Desserts were arroz con leche and flan, with coffee afterwards. The desserts were very nice indeed.

We were glad that we came here and enjoyed the meal very much. We sat outside under the covered area and although it was hot, we were quite cool in the shade.

Restaurant clean and lovely atmosphere.

It was very quiet and could talk easily with the family

The starters were average, las croquetas were ok although I would not repeat them again
I order carrillada which came cold but very good amount of retinto with chips and good salad

The fish was a good portion but they put too much paprika which Destroit the dish, what's a pity because it was a fresh fish

Delicious food - typically Spanish - with posters of bull fights decorating the walls. Attentive service and reasonable prices.

The location of this restaurant in a main thoroughfare on the way to the Roman Museum is great. The bullfighters posters, bull heads, etc. were interesting but the overall seedy atmosphere of the rooms is not appealing to enjoy the food. The cod carpaccio was good but the accompanying spicy/garlicky shrimp overwhelmed the subtlety of the fish. We were the only customers and the service was reasonable.
