Went here for a second time excellent from start to finish. Food of a great quality very well presented. My husband had cod in tomatoes which looked and tasted great. I had fillet steak which although was cooked more than I like it it was still succulent and tender. We shared a prawn starter which again was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Started off bad we made a reservation.
The waiter quickly told us he was booked, and turned us away. This amazes me, they are so happy they are booked they never offer you a card so you can book in the future. They just dismiss you.

However we had booked. No other customers there but I managed to get through to him we had a reservation.

So we were taken to our seat.
I asked for the menu de dia. This is only available Tuesday to Thursday.

There are other set menus available but we were not offered them.?

We ordered a la carte, no problem.

The starters were good. But sun-dried tomato salad had very little sun dried tomato. But was very fresh and good. Smoked salmon. Excellent.
We asked for butter 3rd attempt it arrived.
Main courses were simply good, not outstanding. Blunt steak knifes do you no favours.

The bill.

They over charged us. First we noticed by only one drink. Then we found a couple of other drinks we did not have, but we're on the bill.

When we got out third revised bill.

We were short changed but only by 1 euro.
So check your bill.

We had dinner at La Maquesita on El Dia De Los Reyes eve, so a pretty busy day for a restaurant. We had booked a table, which was probably good planning. There wasn't any undue delay in being served. Our food was delicious. We choose half portions for starters which were very generous. Our mains were sea bass for my husband. I had the mussel, clam and prawn stew, which was wonderful. Wine was priced reasonably fir such a high end restaurant The service was prompt and polite.

We had dinner here on a thursday night in december. It was quite quiet but we were early by Spanish standards (8pm). The food was excellent (we both had steak with lots of vegetables, and a really good bottle of wine) and the service was good. A really nice start to our long weekend.
