Very large onsite parking

We have eaten many times in this restaurant and generally have been very pleased. But today was absolutely awful. We were four people, two dishes were ok, the other two barely edible. We had made a reservation for a table near windows but even with a reservation we were stuck in the back of the restaurant near the kitchen. The deserts on the menu were described as homemade, they were clearly not. I can only think that the reason for such a dreadful meal was due to the fact that this weekend was full of families celebrating communion, so I would avoid ever eating at this restaurant in May ever again. The waiter, however, was extremely nice. The bill was almost 185 euro, not cheap, nor terribly expensive, but not worth this bill this time sadly.

If you have the option to drive out to this restaurant it's well worth the visit. Spanish traditional food at it's best. Meat and fish are good quality and you could have a daily menu for 15 eur excluding weekends. Service was good and prices are reasonable for the excellent quality.

We went for kayaking and discovered this Restaurant next to a Camping ground by accident. Terrace with scenic lake view, we had plenty and good sea food (Setas y Gambas, Emperador a la plancha was perfect, Rape a la vasca was ok).

After kayaking in the lake we passed by this restaurant. We were told by some friends that Spanish omelets were great, so we wanted to try. After sitting in the terrace, we could enjoy de amazing landscape of the lake in front of us with a cup of wine. The service was a bit slow, and we asked for a portion of omelette. The waiter told us that no problem. But 5min later, another waiter ask us for the food and told us that Spanish omelettes are only made in the morning, unless you ask for one which is for 8 persons! We finally chose a couple of dishes that were delicious.
