I ordered what was described as a typical local dish, I feel sorry for the locals if this is what they have to eat. It was inedible, the waiter was not interested in listening to any complaints and just talked over me, there were several dogs ambling about in the restaurant and a cat kept trying to get on my...

We both had pizza and a salad. Pizza was not the best ever eated, a bit tasteless, salad was fine. Maybe we should have ordered a meat dish to be more enthousiastic. However, the terrace is really nice, great views!

Great friendly service, the rabbit was so tender and the kid goat was the best meat dish all holiday. The price was very reasonable too, very highly recommended.

Amazing pizza and views. They also gave us a free starter (tortilla) which was lovely. The staff are friendly. The restaurant is very high at the top of the town but worth the climb. My kids loved the pizza and the one I had with black pudding was great too.

We ate a pizza on the balcony, with a view on the mountains. Very friendly service, excellent pizza, very nice atmosphere. At the end they gave us a liquor on the house. I would certainly go there again.

It took 1.5 hours for their staff to notify us that they could not make the local dish we ordered. So we had to wait 30 minutes for another, and it was disappointing. Other patrons just ordered pizza, and got it much faster. So maybe we should have considered this place an overpriced pizza joint, which it is.

We were 4, and we sat up stairs, all was good, and the prices are high just like the other good restaurant in this town. If a meat fan, we had the lam leg ( Cordero pierna) it was 16 euro but definitely worth it. Freshly done, that's why we waited for 30-40 minutes, and the veg lazaña. It is... More
