Fodor's Review

Locals typically pack this family-run restaurant around the corner from the cathedral. You can have drinks and tapas in the colorful tavern, then move to the cozy dining room or outside patio. The traditional local dishes—flamenquín (battered and fried rolls of pork and ham), lomo de orza (slow-cooked pork loin in traditional marinade), and patatas a lo pobre (sliced potatoes with fried egg and green peppers)—are especially good. There are also some interesting variations on well-known dishes, like Russian salad with lobster.
