We walked by at lunch and amazed at the size of the queue to get in. We decided to make a reservation for dinner. We arrived early (by Spanish standards) and were seated promptly. The owner is an amusing woman who likes to take charge....More

There are three restaurants with similar names; Vello Cabalo, Novo Cabalo, and Cabalo. This is the older one that, as the previous reviewer says, doesn't look like much. But the langoustinos (big shrimp) were fabulous, simply cooked in the shells with lemon and oil, and...More
