Today we returned to the White Gorilla for lunch. Sadly it was not at all appealing. My friend had the fish with courgettes, which was just ok. I had the pintsrd, or small fowl. I'm not sure exactly what was going on but it was...More

Small place but special and good food. They change the menu daily depending they find in the mercado. Very fresh food. The only cons but no important is the selection of wine no extensive. Special dessert cream of pistachio excellent.

I like the place and I enjoyed the cousine, but unfortunately I haven't felt very welcome. I mean, there wasn't nothing to complain about the service but I missed that little "extra" to feel at home. When you travel solo, it's very appreciated.
