It is true that the boss moves on the thin line between professionalism and arrogance, and it is also true that this is not a cheap place.
But we were delighted by the quality of the food, and also the guidance for the menu (small portions were available as starters). We were the only tourists having lunch on an ordinary workday, and the restaurant filled up by 15:30, just normal in Spain :-)
Highlights: pulpo quemado, arroz con cigalas and as mains the rabo de toro and the cabrita.
Asking for the spices they use for the rabo de toro, we got the whole recipe, hand-written with all ingredients and preparation.
We might not come back to Jaén, but we will remember and certainly try out the recipe.
