We have to wait nearly 40 min for a provoleta just to start eating ( it takes less than 5 min to prepare). I asked for ravioli which where nothing special and nearly 30% come unstuffed, just plain. Near us 2 more tables complain for the service, uncocked dishes etc. Its not a bad restaurant but go somewhere else if... More

We went there for lunch and didn't disappoint. The place is lovely, is supposed to have a lot of history behind and looks the part, though it's been preserved very well. We ordered a goulash to share between me and my wife, and it turned out to be the right decision, as the plate was very large and we couldn't... More

The waitress was very good and sweet, from Bs As. The dishes not at all novel and not at all perfect. My lamb roll had a LOT of fat around it and my boyfriend's boar goulash was correct but nothing surprising. He restaurant got crowded close to 9.30pm. Good music.

My family and I had dinner tonight at Dona Quela. The restaurant is very nice and has a lot of character. The service was good and food was good as well. The trout was very fresh and well done. The risotto with mushroom was ok, nothing special. Deserts were good. A nice restaurant to spend time with your family and... More

This historical building used to be a hotel in the past and now remains some aspects of the former time. The specialty is the home made pasta and it delivers what promises. The portion is well served. Menu for kids as well. It is really a good option for a nice meal for lunch or dinner.

The staff, the ambience, the food... This was a great restaurant. Try the pumpkin soup and the "Trunch grilled", don't forget the puré de papas. There is a really interesting and large wine selection. I would recommend one of the Malbeck from Mendoza. The mousse of chocolate could have been better though. Great experience in any case !

For a small town Dona Quela is a good restaurant. The interior feels like the hands of time have been turned back 70+ years. It's very well done, and has a great vibe. I'd give the atmosphere & decor 5-stars. The service was good, but not over-the-top amazing (4-stars). I ordered the caprese salad & ojo de bife. The tomatoes... More

I visited Dona Quela for dinner. My waiter was very helpful with suggestions and steered me towards the venison ravioli with the mushroom cream sauce. The dish was excellent! The restaurant is nicely appointed in the first floor of an old hotel. I would definitely go back.

The place had a very nice ambiance, it was the oldest hotel in town more than 100 years ago and still maintain the feeling of old times. I got the trout and was great just grilled.
