Recommended by Michelin guide and a thoroughly unexpected and pleasant surprise find in a little village. Cosy and intimate ambience with only 6 tables and one person (owner?) running the floor. Menu selection was good with most side items also made in-house.

Small little restaurant where the food served is way beyond its reputation. Even though you need to book in advance to eat there we tried our luck and got a table. Cosy little restaurant, excellent food, well served portions and very tasty. I strongly recommend this restaurant located in a very charming little village surrounded by stunning views of the...

We have come here twice during a one week period. Our first visit was very nice, everything was more than okay - we both went for the expensive menu. The second time we were disappointed: the deer was not deer but beef, the beef meatballs contained pork and while it said "... in truffle sauce" it had obviously no contaminations... More

OK, so we were quite hungry when we got there, but it was a great experience. The restaurant has 3 floors and while the two top ones are dining spots, the waiting room is in the bottom floor. The whole decoration was so cozy, we just felt like staying there the whole time. The food was great and not that... More

A good selection of fixed price menus. Yummy food and good wine. The place looks tiny from the outside but there's plenty of room upstairs. Probably the best place we ate in on holiday.

On a few days of vacation in Torla, me and my friends decided to have dinner in this restaurant, the atmosphere is amazing, loved the little waiting room downstairs while we waited for a table upstairs. The restaurant provides wireless connection, the staff is very nice, and the food is delicious.

Small village in big mountains houses a secret; in a small alley I visited this year three times this little restaurant and enjoyed its high class food and service. Good priced wines. There is a but; portions are for a mountaineer, so if you had a resting day, start with a salade and try some of the wines on the... More

I think it was overpriced for the quantity. And the choices are very limited if you don't eat meat. I eat fish and chicken and I've been in Spain 3 weeks so I don't expect a lot of choices but even the prawns (gambas) were just OK, with not much "meat" in them.
