We ate the day menu. Very low quality, bad service. This salad was extremely simple, meat disappointed, desert doesn't worth a comment. For 17 euros you can ate much better in many other restaurants around.

Went for lunch, asked for lamb, out of. Went to menu of the day. Ordered a pan grilled pork and my wife ordered the Garlic (ajillo) soup. They brought bread as hard as a brick and bad quality. The Garlic soup did not taste like garlic, but a pork broth with their stale cheap bread. My pork was super thin... More

A nice restaurant on one of the busy centre streets. Fun atmosphere, nice decorations but very average food. Free tapas at 5 PM. We had the Menu de Dia but weren't overly impressed. Nice service, though. Dinner does not start until 7:30 PM, which is one of the earliest in the city.

Although the restaurant is not over Celiac friendly, the waitstaff was so very nice and accommodating that I did enjoy the meal very much. I started with the tomato salad and it was absolutely delicious! My steak was served on a sizzling iron platter which unfortunately kept cooking it, more than I would have like but the meat was so...

I've visited this restaurant on 23/May for dinner with my husband. This restaurant is closed to where we stayed. Hotel staff recommended us to try a restaurant on this street (Calle Melendez). First of all, a bad smell on street and we could see many little flies. We chose this restaurant after reading their menu. Once we sat down, we... More

The wine selection is excellent, the food equally as good. Very comfortable place inside at a table, at the bar, outside, all good. Remember if there are at least two of you, buy the bottle!

Tried an steak that was looking at me on the slab, as I passed the grill on the way to the restaurant at the back. Rare was the order and I got a small aircraft carrier, cooked to a T. 19 euros for the best part of a lb of not good, but excellent meat.

This was very handy to where I was staying with a pilgrim friend. He ordered a giant steak while I had the lentil soup. Both of use were happy with the quality of the food. Service was a little slow but it was a busy night and delays were not excessive. Just more opportunity for good conversation!

I have came here every weekday for the past two months. That should say that it is a great place. Very kind staff and the cheapest tapas in the area. You have to get the pincho de lomo.
