We had called in here over the past few years for a coffee or lunch, but our experiences had been rather mediocre, however this week we enjoyed our lunch here.
We sat outside in the (rather scruffy) garden overlooking the parking area. The atmosphere is lovely and tranquil, and our table was in dappled sun-shine.
For a main course I ordered the verduras de la plancha which was excellent - the best ever. It had been prepared with care, there was six vegetables and it was cooked perfectly. My partner had the solomillo cerdo in a raisin and Pedro Ximinez sauce which was also rather good. It came with vegetables and chips.
A bottle of the house white and a bottle of water.
Bill came to E48 excl. a tip. Service was good.
We will return for a snack or lunch, but it is a shame it looks so uncared-for. The very pretty courtyard needed sweeping and all the tables had leaves and debris on them and no table was laid ready for diners. This creates a poor first impression, but stay with it and you will have a very pleasant experience.
