La Comedia

Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 November 2010

This restaurant was the busiest in the Old Town, often full of friendly Irish and British regulars all being looked after by the charismatic Damian, his wife and their happy team. Everyone talked to everyone and it was the place to be. Good(ish) food but a wonderful craic.

Then they moved upmarket and uptown to Calle Ancha. Much bigger, posher and full of small rooms, nooks and crannies. The sort of place to take your mistress and not be seen! It just didn't happen and they lost their way a bit.

The new building didn't last long before they shut-up shop, put up the for sale notices and re-opened the original La Comedia - which they hadn't managed to sell!

Back where they belong and hopefully their once strong following is now back with them and enjoying the atmosphere and eclectic menu.

Having been to this restaurant and had a great experience last year, we returned last night and hoped for similar. What a disappointment. The untidiness of the restaurant and it being empty ( last year it was busy) should have warned us. The service was on the side of can I be bothered, the food decidely average though the prices were not. We escaped at under €60 euros, the duck and the fillet steak were both off at 8.00 pm on a Saturday!! And the expensive ingredients were missing from all our dishes. The final straw was they claime the credit card machine was not working, so I had to walk to the cash machine to pay - by after 9 pm they only had 3 other diners. Be ware I see from the web this has changed hands recently ? So it obviously is not the same owner and chef from last year - doubt it will last long if it serves up food like last night. The best bit is to be able to sit on the balconies looking over the square - but its a steep price to pay.

This is a beautiful atmospheric restaurant in the old town, and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here. Slightly pricey but lovely as a posh meal out on holidays. The only downside was the service was a bit disorganised.
