A welcoming owner and waitress, an excellent lunch, and a very nice bottle of wine. Ideal way to spend a wet Friday afternoon!

If you like huge steaks this is the place for you, I’ve been to Texas and this steak is the biggest I’ve had!! Fred flintsone size. The great wine selection and the friendly waitress and Beautiful balcony made it all a very good dinner experience.

My wife and I are walking the via del plata we took a diversion to visit historic Hervás. Looking for a restaurant for lunch we found El Almirez and what a pleasant surprise. The food was outstanding and excellently presented. The staff were friendly and...efficient. After a month on the road it was a delight to find a quality restaurant.More

We really liked the food. It is traditional food and really tasty. We ordered the special meat carpaccio and the T-bone. The meat was perfect. The waiters are very nice and give good advice.

We saw this restaurant was highly rated, and sought it out for dinner. It seems like a place that prides itself on its food, and sure enough the food was truly excellent. If you've had your fill of chorizo, jamon, and other tapas, El Almirez...can certainly offer something a little different. I have to dock a star for the atmosphere which, while not at all unfriendly, was nevertheless a little bit staid and restrained for my liking.More

We went to Hervas during Easter weekend, the town was packed with visitors. We went to #1 restaurant in town, but they are totally booked for the day. We tried our luck at #2 El Almirez; the restaurant was also packed, but the host was...so nice to ask us for our phone numbers, and would call us if there is a table available. We left disappointed, but just about 15minutes later, we got the call, we had a table for 4. The food was excellent, nice atmosphere, the staff was also very polite. Highly recommend this place!More

Visit this restaurant four years ago, and were really looking forward for this next visit. And we were absolutely not disappointed. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly. We got lokal starters, and afterwards a great beef. Unfortunately the beef was served with...pomme frittes, I think there must be a better altenativ here in Spain. We ended the meal with crepes and apple pie, with a personel touch.More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of our B&B. This is really the best restaurant in Hervas. We were there 4 times! Always very good meals, friendly people, helpfull to even choose meals that are not on the map: they showed us...the uncooked dish so that we could see what kind of fish we should get. On a saturday evening you better reserve a table. Also locals come here to eat. The summer terrace is nice and cool in the evening. Our toppers were the carpaccio of wild mushroom and the carpaccio of calf. Price ist ok.More
