“Warning for jamon lovers”
Reviewed 24 May 2008

We had a good meal consisting of local dishes. There was one problem though. My plate of Jamon Iberico de Belota (JIdB) contained Jamon alright, but not JIdB. I can tell JIdB on a blind tasting, and it was not that but some cheaper version of jamon - could have been jamon serrano or something similar.

When the bill came it said JIdB. So there was no possibility of an error. They didn't even bother to enquire why the plate was left unconsumed. I wonder what motivated them, perhaps they thought that a gringo wouldn't be able to tell the difference?

I would still recommend the restaurant, only stay away from the Jamon.
