“Their interpretation of a hamburger?”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This place is welcoming enough and is on a good street in a touristic location. After mulling over the menu, we decided to give it a try having been a bit 'up to the ears' in tapas.

The waiters are friendly and were happy to recommend the hamburgers (you'll hear the meat described as "Buey" which I guess is Ox). The prices are OK and there's a little picture of a burger (in a roll) in case you've been living in a cave for the last 100 years and don't know what one is.

After a long-ish wait, say 20 minutes (hardly fast food) our dishes turned up. Beef burger - no roll - dumped on a plate with some skinny fries and a bit of salad. Now, I hadn't asked for a diet or roll-free burger and the photo on the menu clearly illustrated a burger in a roll.

We complained and was told that it was their interpretation of a burger. Did we want a couple of pieces of bread? No, we wanted a burger. No ifs, no buts, just a burger. We didn't really want a Spanish arguing the toss either.

We didn't hang around. Massive disappointment.

“Fantastic little place”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

Came upon this by accident. Had wine, meals, desserts and coffee, all excellent and total bill for 2 was 70 euro. Can't remember my wife's dish, but I had the seafood risotto which was excellent. Waiter was no-nonsense but service was excellent and leisurely(yet efficient). Great little restaurant, would definitely come here again if we could find it.
