Many restaurants in town but this is one which serves menu del dia which is a three course meal for under 10 euros with drinks under 14 euros per head. Good quality food and well worth the money.

Caroline the owner is from England and offers a typical Sunday roast dinner, complete with rhubarb crumble or sticky toffee pudding for dessert. If you aren't in the mood for British fare, the fresh fish, shrimp salad and other entrees are also delicious!
