In jaca again, we decided to go back to this restaurant for lunch as we enjoyed it so much during our last visit. We were not disappointed. A fantastic 3 courses lunch menu. Service is also extremely friendly and superb. We had the pleasure to eat on their lovely outside terrace this time. My tuna dish was fantastic!

Well, spot on location, quick and attentive service. Don't miss it. Their menu is based on dishes they master, and English language is available by the service. Elegant, crisp, and authentic.

It wasn't easy to find a restaurant open in Jaca on a Monday and this wasn't our first choice. There were a lot of positives and one negative. We got a friendly welcome, the service was prompt and I liked the ambience. The opening soup was excellent, as was the dessert. The wine was first rate. Unfortunately, I chose lamb... More

14 euros for 3 excellent dishes. Gazpacho, chicken with cheese sauce and natillas for dessert. Wine and water included. Very good and quick service. The place feels very authentic and the service was excellent! Also really liked the small appetizers offered to us!

Porton is a restaurant, so more formal than the town's tapas bars; the food is also much better. We had meat and fish, some really nice amuses bouche, and an excellent chocolate fondant for dessert. The prices are reasonable too for the quality of the food. Porton is well worth a visit.

As Belgians, we didn't understand the menu at all. Like most in Spain, our waitress didn't speak english nor french, but we ordered the 'Ménù Special', which sounds great. Surprisingly, it was the best meal we had in ages. The menu includes aperitivo (little aperitif: we had cold aspergus soup and a spoon with sweetsour meat), an 'entrada' (i ordered... More

I waited until I'd eaten here twice before writing a review, to see if the second meal matched up to the first. It didn't - it surpassed it by some distance! My first meal was a set menu - very good and beautifully presented, but slightly lacking in flavour. Tonight I ate from the carta and the food was absolutely... More

We chose the 14 euro menu and received great food, ample wine and great service, plus little appetisers at the start. This is very friendly and wonderful value for money.
