It’s a lovely restaurant easily found outside city walks behind Cathedral. great staff and welcoming feel. Unfortunately for us the food, though exquisitely presented was very very rich, and very salty . Even the quacamole and anchovy salad was covered in richness, the quacamole packed inside fried cones which resembled ice cream cones visually but deep fried . The stuffed lenguado (sole) was totally covered in creamy pepper sauce and so was the plate, impossible to eat without so much cream. The desserts likewise. Prices excellent set meal 28 euros including a drink each which translated perfectly into a bottle of wine for two people. We shan’t go again as this is too rich for our taste but I understand those who are happy with such food as this place certainly has a real chef.

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We wanted lunch and had to book in advance. It is a popular restaurant and was full the day we eat there. The menus are only in Spanish - the staff do try and help.
The food was fantastic- really fresh, tasty and nicely presented. It well deserves its top slot!

Considering the opening hours of Spanish restaurants, we were targeting to have a late lunch before visiting the old town and particularly climbing up the stoned wall. This was the top rated restaurant in TripAdvisor which didn't disappoint us at all. They do not have an English menu so you either google translate or ask for recommendations. The 28 Euro set includes one starter, one Main (fish or meat) and one dessert (or coffee/tea) on the menu. A bottle of wine and a bottle of water is also included for two persons. We tried the food recommended by the courteous waitress - House salad, ham, Chuleton steak, and roasted pig. Everything was so delicious and cooked to the right point. I was particularly surprised by the salad - definitely the best salad ever (but it includes nuts so it may not suit everyone). The skin of the pig was so crispy and nice. Couldn't finish the food but I would definitely recommend this restaurant for its outstanding food, great value of money, and of course the warm staff there! Thanks all from TripAdvisor who gave so much details about the restaurant, without which we would not order those wonderful food!

We had the menu degustacion. The only fault was is way too much, quality excellent for an unbelievable low price. Enjoy but be aware its decent fulfilling food.

We came here based on Tripadvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. It's a little bit away from the centre of town and we actually walked past it when we were looking for it (it was raining - that's our excuse). We chose the Special Menu at 28 Euros where you can choose any starter and main course from the menu and then have dessert or coffee. A bottle of wine between two is also included. Great value and great food.
