Fodor's Review

A major appeal of this restaurant is that it is slightly off the well-trodden tourist route and has a strong local following, especially at tapas time (the first is free, others from €1). The intimate, rustic-style dining room provides a welcoming setting for enjoying a wide range of dishes, including surprisingly good pizzas as well as generous portions of heartwarming local specialties like braised oxtail, bacalao al pisto (cod with ratatouille), and prawns in a spicy chili sauce. Barbecued meat and fish are available in the summer.
