We went there twice. The second time we had a different waiter who spoke a bit of English which was a bonus his name was Javier. He was a sweetheart and asked if he could make the suggestions. It was an amazing dinner, we tried the pig cheeks and they were awesome the whole meal was great and he had... More

Firstly, make sure you ask for Javier the best waiter in the place. We had a fantastic experience. Great food.....the pig cheeks being the highlight of the evening.

The restaurant was recommended to us by a long term resident of an Andalucia and he was spot on. Great restaurant with real character that has hams hanging all through the front and bar area. We had a selection of tapas, but the Garlic Prawns and Iberico Ham on Sauteed Potatoes were outstanding. Good selection of wine, sherry, and of... More

I came here only twice in two months but I love it. The carillada is so tender and flavorful that I constantly crave it. I have tried it in other places and it is never the same. The waiters are also very customer service oriented. Great place!

Read no further if you are a vegetarian or indeed, if you do not like pork! This traditional style restaurant has a menu based almost exclusively on the wonderful Iberian pig products from the northern mountain ranges of the province. As well as delicious sausages, hams and stews, look out for a few dishes which at first sight many Brits... More

We have had lunch in Cumbres Mayores (barra zone) and it has been delicious and good priced. We specialy recommend "Carrillada Iberica al meson" and "Presa Iberica al 5o aniversario, el pelotazo".

Great place to have a bite, love the tapas! It's a great place to have some typical Spanish tapas, the service is good and fast and up till now I never had a problem of any kind. I would definitely come back again. The only thing is that you really have to like dishes that include meat. I wouldn't go... More

This place was recommended by the locally-resident receptionist in the apartments we were staying in, and she was dead right. We just perched at the bar and ate tapas-style, and were delighted with everything we ordered. Kidneys in sherry (obviously!), slightly spicy cold cooked liver (which sounds disgusting but was terrific), some excellent croquetas, decent house wine and instant professional... More

I don't know the name of the dish, but ask for what they do best. They'll bring out what I believe is beef cheeks and potatoes with a sauce. Reminded me a bit of pot roast, but better. I was told that this restaurant specializes in beef and ham, so skip the seafood. We tried the cazon and while it... More
