Slow paced... the place is stuck in the 70s, small portions of food with good quality. Prices are acceptable still you may need two main dishes to be ok. Recommend taking the "Mantecado Malteada" quite good. Juste be patient as they take their time.

The best place for Dulces Cristalizados and ice cream. Inexpensive place for Breakfast or Lunch in the city center.
