From the outside it is rustic, get inside the doors and there is memorabilia everywhere from Iniesta to bullfighting. We were met by the very friendly staff and offered drinks.First a nice brandy. Then some food to die for. A medley of mushrooms a Superb steak and the desert cooked to order of apple pie. Great place highly recommended.

We went to this restaurant as recorded by TripAdvisor. On arrival (about 9:45) we asked for a restaurant table. After a short wait we were shown to a room with hundreds of pictures depicting famous bull fighters and footballers. The restaurant was empty (we know Spanish people eat late and staff told us it was fully booked) but despite this... More

Let's start by saying that if you didn't like bullfighting this wasn't the restaurant for you. The was not even one square inch... More

I ate here with a large group of friends. We were given a private room covered in bullfighting memorabilia. The ambience was great. The food was even better. Baby sqid and peas sauteed in butter. I don't even like peas but this dish was fantastic. Grilled ox ribs, roasted cow tongue, and lots of local wine. They served us family... More

Wow - this place is something else. Don't be put off by the small frontage in a backstreet.As a foodie I'm always searching for the ultimate local experience. El Callejon certainly delivers. The snug bar and warren of rooms offer the ambience, suited waiters deliver stylish and amiable 5 star service and the menu delivers the substance and value for... More

Not the usual tapas and small food. But if if you wanna eat a good dish with fine meat this is your place. Friendly staff who don't speak english but hey you're in Spain.

I were at this place for a business dinner with 25 persons. The food was just great. We had three courses as starters, one main and one desert. We were served matching wine for the courses (perfect choice) and the service was just perfect. Of you do not want to eat tapas of paella, than this is the place to... More
