Not so much a restaurant, more a bar that serves food. The service was very friendly and efficient and the food was most tasty; basic but delicious. A great place for a spot of lunch while exploring the hills and the village.

A lovely restaurant with outdoor seating across the road, overlooking the square. Reasonably priced tapas, with a limited lunchtime menu. A simple approach but adequate for a light lunch.

A fabulous late lunch after hiking around the village. Owner was helpful, spoke English but more importantly the food was delicious and a little bit different from tourist stuff served in many places.
