Fodor's Review

A special treat here is to dine on the traditional Andalusian patio, which is overlooked by a 300-year-old statue of the Virgin (hence the name) surrounded by a colorful group of plants. The menu includes hearty options like roast duck with fig sauce, and mushroom risotto, as well as lighter dishes like the Tirrena salad (with king prawns and orange), and gazpacho. One of the house specialties is paella, with four choices to select from, including vegetable, fish and seafood, and traditional Valenciana with chicken and rabbit. After your meal, you can stroll round the corner for a coffee in lovely Plaza de los Naranjos.
