I went here with my sister and my mother, and we had three menus. I have to say, nothing was really good, the food quality wasn't especial, the taste wasn't interesting neither, well no, I have to say the potatoes were excellent, but they are the only thing I can say that was worth it.

Make sure to reserve beforehand! This restaurant definitely deserves to be one of the top restaurants in El Escorial. The terrace is cosy and the food is awesome.
