“Gem”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We happened upon this restaurant quite by luck while driving through the Pueblos Blancas. The waiter was wonderful and even though he spoke very little English and we spoke even less Spanish, we ended up with a fantastic lunch for four with beer and wine for 35 Euros. The waiter indicated he could pick a selection of tapas for us and we ended up with a great variety which included gazpacho, chicken rolls with ham and cheese, wild boar, venison stew, lamb, marinated olives and potatoes. Following the meal, he brought us a round of liqueurs on the house. It was a great meal with great service and I would highly recommend it.

“Exceeded expectations! ”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We came here on a Wednesday around 20.00 and we're friendly welcomed by the waitress.

My girlfriend and I both chose the 10 euro menu which was composed of a starter, full ración main course and desert. Which was more than enough! Even though the starter was simple ( soup with egg, ham and rice), the main course of freshly baked forel was really good and finished with the best cheese cake so far (after two weeks). Between that we received free bread and a tapa and a shot after receiving the bill.

All in all it was one of the best diners with regard to the price/quality ratio! It's not Michelin but you get really good value for your money!!!

“Consistent over the years”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

This is a popular place with locals and our favourite place to eat in El Bosque. It is good value with large portions of home cooked food with very reasonable prices and great house wine (Beronia rioja by the glass 1.20 Euros). Their trout (from the village trout farm) wrapped in Serrano ham is always fantastic and so fresh. We like the stews; pork cheek or venison or wild boar. All their meat dishes are good. To start we always have the dressed carrots; cooked carrots in a spicy/herby/garlic dressing. We have eaten here many times over the last years and have never had a poor meal.

The restaurant is connected to the posada/accommodation. There is a small inside dining room and a much larger covered terrace with one area for tapas (beer barrels) and another area with seating.
