Visited here with family and friends for the first time since it has moved to it's new location in the village. We has an excellent meal. My steak was one of the best I've ever had. This will be one of our regular eating places in Colmenar.

We stopped here for tapas and had the cheese platter, 4 bits of cheeses and some apple, no bread, no pickle, very poor standard for €5. We didn’t go again

Took friend here today for lunch and received a warm welcome. We had drinks while perusing the menu, we were given a tapa with our drinks while deciding on our lunch order. We were informed of the soup of the day and also what special recommendations of the day were available, meat dishes and vegetarian pasta dishes. One of my friends is a vegetarian so it was great to see they had several choices accommodating veggies!
All of our food was delicious, pate, soup, pasta dishes & chicken curry with rice. The house wine is very good, the service excellent! Great value for money in a beautifully designed restaurant. We had a fabulous lunch thank you for our great tasty dining experience, see you again soon.

When it opened, this place had a refreshing, suprising cuisine at a decent price. My last visit was unfortunately very dissapointing.

As starters, we has carpaccio and a salad. The carpaccio was good, but the salad was definitely withered - no freshness at all.

As the main dish we had cod. I particullary loved the way the used to prepare the cod, but this time they changed the recipe and it was simply insipid. It reminded me of the food you would get in a hospital when you have digestion problems.

Service was unattentive: nobody came to ask if we were satisfied (I guess, they know why ...) nor they have asked us if we want some desert, coffee etc.

Mediocre food, quite expensive and the service was really bad. Waiter made us feel unwelcome. One of our party didn't get their food 15 minutes after the rest of us. Disappointed.
