Reviewed 11 October 2017

We are usually not keen to eat in hotel restaurants but in the case of El Buho it was great that we made an exception to our "rule". The restaurant offered a daily menu (available actually all day and not limited to certain hours) which we found excellent value for money (in total we spend ca. 40 EURs for the two of us - starters, mains, dessert and wine/drinks). You can chose between 3-4 starters, mains and desserts (all typical Andalucian style) and everything we had tasted delicious! The restaurant also has additional items on the menu, but most people seemed to go for the daily menu. The service was very friendly and attentive and the wine our waiter recommended was splendid. Can highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant and would certainly visit again when in the area.

Had a 3 course lunch menu. Salmorejo was top sweet. Eggs, jamon and potatoes plain. Wine is not something to talk about here.

Cosy little restaurant very well located in Quadix a few steps from the square. The interior decoration the owner probably did himself. We ordered two different dishes of pork - hard to find veal on the menu. But what a mistake, both with the same potatoes warmed up in the microwave but still cold inside. The meat what not bad, just the presentation was very bad and not one sight of a vegetable not even as decoration. Not recommendable.

We dined here in the evening based on it's location and the trip advisor reviews; unfortunately our experience was not as we had anticipated. Perhaps it was because it was early May, not quite the "tourist season" and therefore the kitchen was not up to speed?

Initially we selected for the main course the Mixed Meat Rice (Rissoto) for two only to be told that it had to be pre-ordered; the menu made no mention off that. Lamb was then selected, subsequently to be told that it was not available.

OK, a starter of spicy prawns was, well not spicy. The prawns were evidently frozen tiny prawns quickly cooked with a couple of mild red chillis thrown in the tomato sauce.
The tuna tartar with avocado & mango was a struggle, the tuna was not the best cut (essential for tartar) and sinewy. The mango and avocado was mush and dominated the tuna.
The kid stew was very good, perhaps pre cooked and reheated? Never the less very tasty. The sirloin medallions were dry, at a guess cooked straight from the fridge not cooked at room temperature; the potato/onion accompaniment bland and didn't enhance the dish, as didn't the squiggles of balsamic vinegar around the plate,; no seasoning?

Overall not a wonderful experience and one we wouldn't wish to repeat albeit the service was welcoming and pleasant. The previous trip advisor ratings must indicate something has gone wrong in the kitchen.

Taberna is a very welcoming restaurant and decor involves much exposed brickwork and timbers. It works well. Staff very polite and friendly. Food is prepared from fresh quality ingredients and is presented on plate very well. Looks as good as it tastes. Predominantly Spanish cuisine tho also some international dishes.
