We had arrived late in the evening and needed something quick to eat. Our hostal recommended this place. I had a milanesa and my SO some veal chops. We shared a side salad. The service was ok, the veal chops 50% bone and well done...More

Great place for before and after a week long hiking trip! The portions were big and for a reasonable price. The staff were friendly. Only thing was the salmon was a bit dry, but the seafood margharita sauce was amazing, so that made up for...More

My first centoya.. and I almost died of happiness! Excellent food and quick service. Portions are large (a little too large for the plates, but who cares?) and satisfying.

The BBQ entree was amazing - although I was solo and wishing I had about 3 other people to help me eat it! Delivered to the table in it's own charcoal brazier - I had leftovers for days. This is BBQ in the classic sense...More
