We had dinner here over the Feria weekend. While most restaurants were serving overpriced, poorly made paella, this restaurant offered a regular, and fantastic, menu. I had the duck, a charcuterie plate, but the best dish was dessert: a chocolate fondant wrapped in a pastry, with a deliciously spicy chili sauce on top. The chef-owner was charming and welcoming.

Excellent food. Superb wine. Service was excellent, as well. Happened upon it while strolling home from a day of sightseeing/Roman ruins. What a treat!

Been there for dinner, piquillos and axoa, good, but nothing exceptional. Service is a bit slow, portions are small. Do not go there if you are really hungry. Globally good, a bit disappointing.

The service was ok but I think that they were understaffed. Mais, pas de souci. We are used to taking our time in France and appreciate not having to rush through... More

We ended up at La Chistera because we had booked the restaurant next door at 8pm, we arrived 7.55pm and she told us to go too early, always good comes out of bad, delicious food and service at La Chistera, a wee French gem

Good cuisine, fresh products, delicious wine, nice atmosphere, good location. I had a fricassée of salmon, St Jacques and chorizo, a wonderful Tariquet and a crunchy dessert with dark chocolate and sweet chilli. Perfect.

Recommended by our B&B hosts (who were ex-restauranteurs themselves) this really hit the spot. Excellent food and a good wine selection by the glass - perfect!
