We had the beef filet 600g platter with salad and fries. And white wine. It was delicious. The meat was so lean. I totally recommend.

Went there after visiting the Palace of Bolsa. In the evening has several events/shows (ground floor) which you should know in advance. On the 1st floor there´s a wonderful restaurante. Pure iron age. Wonderful.
