“Great views... but pricey....”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We had the buffet breakfast here. What a beautiful Posada! We decided to stay for their breakfast and it was very nice to be there and enjoy the views into the gorge. It is a cold breakfast, serve yourself, and 9 euros. I guess we paid for the experience... If you don't need a big breakfast, you might like to try this one.

“All you Need”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Reasonable, good quality, food and wine. Views from some tables across the gorge, and a small terrace that is open in good weather. You will need to book!

“Fantastic view, really good food”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

Would recommend getting here early for dinner and getting the best spot on the terrace as we did. The view is magnificent. We were also really impressed by the food and the Canadian lady who runs the place is great.

“Great view, average food”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The location is very nice, and if you can get arable next to the window you will enjoy a great view. On the other hand the food is very simple and somewhat overpriced. Service is average.
