The interior is very different. Old collectibles and Weapons. The decor is indeed something else... As for the food then there's nothing to complain about. Good pasta. Nicely grilled vegetables. Tasty bread and good quality cheese. Would recommend It. Good for vegetarian options.

This was the nearest restaurant to our stay at Al Larin Hotel and as it was raining we didn't want to walk further. We both ordered the ravioli and a salad. The price was 14E so we expected a good portion, however 7 pieces of ravioli served on a plate was not to our expectation. When we asked for the... More

Despite a good food and nice decoration. The owner feel a bit to proud of it. He was not so welcoming the way he answer in the first place when I walked in despite having booked before. Food is good but overpriced for some items.

Great locally sourced and freshly prepared specialties. Go early, they open at 7pm and by 9pm they can be busy.

As many of the other places in Cortina, this restaurant has a lot of charm and the food is good. But plan ahead and book, as this place is always full (even on snowy weekdays). The only downside is the price - approximately Eur 100 per couple for a shared starter, two mains, water and an inexpensive bottle of wine.

If you are planning on going to El Zoco, make sure you call ahead and book since even during the week they are full. We managed to find a table for 2 but other then that the place was fully booked. The price is slightly expensive but overall it was worth it since the food is good and there is... More

This is the restaurant you dream of finding on holiday! A cosy hideaway where the locals are enjoying the ambience as well as the tourists. Our host was really friendly and guided us round the menu. We got to experience specialities we wouldn't have tried otherwise. Fantastic service and atmosphere
