We had dinner at Cibeles and it was terrible. I had fried eggplant with miel. It was burned and very greasy. We ordered their special Cibeles salad. It was drenched in a thick mayonnaise sauce. It had one white asparagus that was definitely out of a bottle, canned corn and pineapple, canned carrots and onions. The tomatoes were the only fresh vegetable on the salad. My mother in law ordered the lasagna. It was inedible. She took one bite and spit it out. We sent it back and ordered something else. They charged us for the terrible lasagna anyway! I complained and the server actually argued with us and told us they tried it and that it was fine. In the end we paid and left and would not return! I'm surprised that anyone eats there!

I'm annoyed to see other reviewers criticising Cibeles (and by definition Ana, although one mentions "unfriendly staff" and a "waiter" so surely they have the wrong place.....). It offers good standard food in generous portions at affordable prices, and for us locals a great outdoor place for coffee and snacks with a proprietor who treats us VERY well and does (someone else noticed - well done!) take pride in remembering you and your preferences. She is one of the most hardworking people I'm come across. For those who want haute cuisine and silver service please go elsewhere and leave Cibeles to those who appreciate it for what it is - a good place to eat and drink outside without breaking the bank. If you find yourself hungry and near Cibeles in sunny weather, there are few better sunny places to enjoy your meal.

I visited here with my partner & grandad. The food was lovely we all had rosada and it's was lovely & very well presented. Ana was a great host & made sure we had everything we needed & kept us topped up with drinks. Will be back again soon.

We love this little restaurant. There is always a welcome and staff pride themselves on remembering your preferences. Ana is very attentive and kind.
The tapas are also very good and a little bit unique and special. We actually feel guilty because others are paying for food, while we have free tapas.
The food on the menu is also excellent value. While it is a little off the beaten track, it is definitely worth a visit.

We spotted here quickly one lunchtime. We selected the restaurant based on its proximity to the car park (we were en route to Almeria) and had no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised. Staff were friendly and efficient. The portion sizes were good and our pizzas, salad and pork steak with chips were excellent. (One pizza could easily serve two). Very good. Now back in the car for the rest of our journey!
