I love going to this place. Although the inside could use some minor redecorating, the food is good and the wine list is great, all for a reasonable price. The location couldn't be better, right on the Plaza de Santa Cruz, in the old Jewish...More

In a small square just outside the main stream of tourists is this pretty villa which doubles as a restaurant. Period dining rooms indoors and a very pleasant patio outside. We sat in the patio in a wonderful aroma of orange trees. Service was friendly...More

We had dinner on the patio of this charming restaurant in the old quarter. The whole feel was very "home style" even though the restaurant interior looks elegant. The service was excellent. We ate traditional Spanish dishes which were well prepared; tasted like someone's mother...More

Food was so so, that's all that's worth saying about that. They claimed the menu didn't include IVA (VAT), which as far as I know is an illegal practice under Spanish law (as well as EU law). They removed it promptly when I questioned it,...More

Great location, but looks closed for 'renovation'; no signage to indicate future...also, the nearby flamenco showplace is closed and under major reconstruction...also with no explanation signs...maybe later this year...the Plaza de Santa Cruz itself is a scenic location worth at least a stroll-through while roving...More

Visited this place on Xmas day for dinner. Don't be fooled by the beautiful interiors of this cosy looking restaurant. We ordered the seafood soup for starters. This came as a bland broth with rice in it. Not really up to the quality for a...More

A nice restaurant in a pretty secluded street in the old town. The interior looks like an old villa turned into a restaurant The food was good and tasty, like your grandmother used to cook.

Set in a very quiet square and in a very splendid old town house, we searched out this restaurant on recommendation for lunch. It was disappointing. The food was passable, but certainly did not rise to the surroundings. This is home cooking trying to be...More

Situated in the glorious Barrio de Santa Cruz, La Albahaca is elegant and historic. A restaurant with a past, La Albahaca���s building dates back to the 1920s, an era when architecture was grand and gorgeous. So expect original features, none of which have been tampered with to create the graceful setting of this dining room. An impressive central courtyard is surrounded by chic little vintage styled dining rooms in which small groups of people enjoy their food under the dim buzz of conversation. The menu, which has a classical French theme, is equally impressive and just as elegant ��� you���ll be reminded of the kind of dishes fairy tale royalty might enjoy.
