Absolutely brilliant.An interesting and varied menu selection with each dish served up with flair and imagination.We tend to share a starter and desert but the portions are large and you would not really know that you are sharing. As a consequence we find the final cost to be remarkably low. However, La Mandragora is now closed for renovations until early... More

This place is easily the best in the courtyard. The blackened pork is super as are the fish dishes. Wine options are also very good and the owners really know which wine to recommend. Their pre-starter aperitifs are always good too!

Their isn't too much to say about this restaurant to excite anyone. A nice little different Tapa to greet you with. Wine selection OK, Sangria very good. Food reasonably but haven't found anything to excite me yet.

We both had an excellent meal, and I was stupid enough to have a soup starter before the main course... huge helpings - struggled to finish it all. I had the chicken breast, expected one, but two arrived.!! The quality and service were excellent, but a little on the expensive side. Recommended.

Situated in the commercial centre, El Zoco, this one of the very good restaurants in the area. Although some of the dishes are quite expensive they are exquisitely cooked and presented, and are a little different form other neighbouring establishments. The menu is extensive and is supplemented by dishes of the day. Rudi the owner chooses a wine of the... More
