This was my second visit to Dona Coqueta in a year and I was not disappointed. The food is always savory, the service wonderful, and the atmosphere comfortable. There is no outdoor dining, but who cares when the food is this good. The beef specialty melted in my mouth, and they have a unique dessert of frozen white chocolate mousse with pop rocks. That was definitely a first--I felt 10 again for a moment.

Three colleagues and I had dinner here on a Friday evening. When we arrived at 9PM the bar was full of people and there was a warm and friendly atmosphere. We went into the restaurant and decided to go for two starters and four main courses. All the food was well presented and tasted great. We had a bottle of red wine, which was perfect for the food. it had a good flavor, but was not too strong for the food. In addition to all of this the service was also friendly and the waitress we talked to spoke English well. The reason for not giving the restaurant five stars is that their tiramisu was a bit too much cheese, and not enough bread for my taste.

Great tapas, the best in the city in opinion of us, our Irish, Spanish and Polish friends. And great owner as well. We were there twice and will be back for sure when we visit Ciudad Real next year.

I ate lunch here with some friends based on the recommendation by another friend. When we arrived on Saturday the place was packed. We quickly found out why... the food was delicious! Although we ate at the bar - tapas style - the service was good the the food was delicious. We ate a nice variety of croquetas as well as a pork dish with a strawberry sauce. Really delicious creative stuff! Would definitely return the next time I'm in Ciudad Real!

Behind the extremely busy bar part is the colourful restaurant. The menu is wide ranging combining contemporary styles with traditional dishes. The staff are attentive and helpful and always willing to recommend dishes or wines as well as warn you if you order too much. Miguel, the owner, has a loyal clientele which keep coming back to sample Josu´s wonderful food. The Chicken Roquefort is good however for me the star dish are the Beef Cheeks in Red Wine sauce on a Potato Purée. Try the tapas out front, which are just as good and make sure to reserve a table from Thursday to Sunday.
