Fodor's Review

This alluring mesón (tavern) exudes Old Spain with stained-glass windows and a roaring fireplace. Weekdays, classic dishes such as paella, spring lamb, suckling pig, and Cornish hens with truffles keep customers happy, but on Saturday night this place comes into its own with a four-course medieval banquet (starting at 8:30 pm), including a procession of costumed waiters carrying huge trays of steaming hot viands. Further entertainment is provided by a student vocal group dressed in medieval Spanish capes and hats, a juggler, and a magician. For dessert, a real winner is the turrón (Spanish nougat) ice cream.

Very Spanish atmosphere!

We had a nice but very plentiful dinner there (quantities are huge!). A lot of atmosphere in this restaurant. One regret: the bill was not very accurate... Another attempt of over-charging their foreign customers ???
