“Great Takeaway!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Cooked by Angela and swerved by her daughter Veronica. Food is good, Spanish and cheap. You can eat there, but is really meant for take away - great for those that can't or don't want to cook, but love home cooked Spanish food at a reasonable price.

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Called here after finding this on Tripadvisor.A takeaway with freshly prepared dishes and nice coffee
Just a few tables to eat in and it now closes at 6pm.
Food was exceptional and lady owner took time to explain all dishes on offer.Her mum was preparing the dishes in a very clean environment
I had a lovely escalope and my partner had delicious tuna pasta
Portions were generous and there was also a 3 course special ,if you could eat that much!
A pity they weren't open later as would have enjoyed a more substantial meal in the evening
Ideal if you stay self catering as food can be taken back and reheated
Will definitely return next year
Located in an area that I am not familiar with but easy to find from the map.if you are at bus station follow road on left and don't go into centre.About 5 mins walk from there.A popular little place and now I know why!!

“AN HIDDEN GEM!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

First of all, this is not a traditional restaurant, it is a local takeaway, but since many people knows it, they put some table for dinner outside, so you can eat there if you want. Thus said, food is fantastic: it really is home-made cooking ("comida casera"), all is cooked by this lady I can't remember her name, but she cooks fantastic!!!! She and her daughter are very polite and kind people and they will do anything they can to make your dinner special. We tried almost everything and we never were disappointed. And, last but not least, since it's not a proper restaurant, it is quite cheap, so it definitively worths a visit.
