Caceres was pumping on the Saturday night of Easter. We had arrived that evening and hadn’t checked out the dining scene. Everywhere we looked was really full and we didn’t feel like battling for a space at the bar. We were told outside the bar/restaurant that they had tables inside. We were led out past the bar to a dining area. No ambience and a bit of an odd smell.We were handed some well-used and not so clean menus and chose a couple of raciones and some drinks. While waitin we were brought some tasty little barbecues sausages. Our order arrived - barbecued asparagus - 7 pieces, pleasant but the plate was over the top embellished and really spoilt the simplicity of the dish. The other dish of fried eggs with ham was okay, although we have eaten far better around Spain and the potatoes were really oily. We shared a dessert - apparently a speciality of the area. It was ok but once again highly decorated plat with a big chip on the side. Perhaps less attention to decoration and more on the content would be good. Our meal of 2 raciones, 2 drinks and one dessert (and no bread) came to 40 euros. Certainly not good value and very ordinary food.

Patas bravas was in fact chips with a side of spicy ketchup. Chicken breast with vegetables turned out to be wings and thighs with a side dip of generic barbecue sauce.
Croquettas were very nice , very creamy.
The 2 euros we were charged for the bread we refused was my tip
Service was pleasant if inattentive and I would say the experience was exceptionally average

The menu was quite complete with alternatives for all tastes. With tables on the main public square, they make it a beautiful place to have lunch. Very good and professional attention. Reasonable prices.

Had dinner and enjoyed every dish from salad, main (steak more than expected and tuna seared to perfection) and desert for two (which was almost a meal in itself)

Ate here twice with our cycling group, once for lunch and the other for dinner. The location is perfect, right on Plaza Major. Food was excellent, waiters friendly and attentive. Good value, we will definitely return to this restaurant when we next visit Caceres.
