Great meat, super service and very reasonable prices! The best restaurant in the village along with La Maroma. We sat at the terasse outside, so have not been inside the restaurant. Review based on three visits.

Very authentic and delightful place. Their chivo is very good and the service first class. Great wine list and all great value. Highly recommended.

We stayed with friends nearby and ate a fabulous meal of goat (a local speciality) at this Bodegon. Never having eaten goat before I approached it with some trepidation but I needn't have worried as it was delicious, succulent and beautifully cooked. Highly recommended.

Typical Spanish Bodega but a bit more "fancy". Friendly staff that spoke English and / or willing to understand my bad Spanish. The place looks really nice and authentic. Very good chicken and oxtail croquettes as starter. Great farmers lunch with blood sausage, chorizo and...More

We've visited this village 3 times in the last 12 months, sadly on the first 2 visits this restaurant was closed for the duration of our stay. This time though it opened half way through our stay and we popped in for a light lunch....More
