We have eaten all over the world including the so called best restaurant in the world ( read review of Black Swan in Oldstead).
Tonight we just had an Octopus, potato and pequillo pepper salad with paprika mayonnaise ( enough for two)
Cubes of Salt Cod with a seville style thick Orange marmalade.
Gratin of Scallops
Mini langoustine burger with a tomato & smoked garlic salsa
Fillet of pork with cream & garlic sauce, a bottle of White wine , 3 beers and a sublime Chocolate brownie with coconut cream and a yogurt ice cream.
€40 !!!
The tastes, service and setting are funky and welcoming, and our server was outstanding. We tried our Spanish and she tried English and we got on excellently.

If you could award 10 stars we would.

Nowhere in England can get near this place, worth the effort to get here.

Despite the language barrier the service was very friendly and helpful. The carpaccio was excellent, the main course absolutely delicious. It was a very pleasant evening.

We stopped in for lunch after visiting the Gruta. The tapas were interesting and good, with the risotto and the solomillo exceptional. Cute ambiance and good service too. Perfect lunch!!

We were the only patrons but it was a Monday. Great lunch and far too much to eat. Nice olives and bread. Interesting salmorejo cream amuse bouche. Cod in a mango and sun dried tomato salad. Lovely roast vegetables. Flavourful morcilla, chorizo, jamon, potato and egg dish. Good squid. Enormous cheese plate much of which was doggy bagged. Washed down with nice Verdejo. €98. Service was slightly patchy but good when there was someone there.

We were looking for something other than the usual tapas and we found it here. Original, great tasting, high quality foods, reasonable prices and good service. What more can you ask for!
