The owner of our B&B told us about this restaurant and we enjoyed it so much that we went
back a second night. I had the signature rabbit dish and liked it very much. Everyone very
friendly and helpful with our selections. Prices reasonable. So fun to be in such an old
establishment. Very authentic, very good. Comfortable. Highly recommend it.

When we stood in front of the restaurant, we were doubting if we were at the right place. First there were big barrels with wine and in the back the restaurant. The staff asked us if we would try some wine first and we could taste a few wines. You have to walk to the restaurant yourself if you finished the tasting. The staff is very friendly. They have translated menu cards in most European languages. The food is very nice. You can order a dish and share, but you can also order a dish for yourself. You pay a bit more than other restaurants in the neighborhood.

We were a group of 10 and had a 20€ set menu including:
* selection of tapas de la casa
* rabbit (their specialty) / lamb / fish
* selection of local wines
* dessert de la casa (not included in the price): flans de coco, de almendras....

Wine tasting is offered at the entrance while you'll be waiting to be seated; this is your welcome drink and contributes a lot to feel warmly welcomed!

All in all I can recommend this place for its good atmosphere, their friendly staff, the quality of food; this might be convenient for large groups (>10); reservation recommended!

If you want to go for a romantic diner I would recommend to pass as the place can easily become crowded and noisy.

Really really enjoyed thes restaurant. The atmosphere and ambiance are beyond reproach. You are met with an invitation for a glass of wine from one of two huge barrels. From there you are escorted to the dining room which is ancient and period.

The waiters always recommend the rabbit. It is VERY good. There are an awful ot of onions and garlic with the rabbit. But, I happen to love onions and garlic.

I heartily recommed the roasted green peppers and the calamari. IU was not so impressed with the lamb.

The house wine is cheap and plentiful and quite nice. The desserts were average.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone....
