Very nice historical place, very nice menu, very good food and very nice people - good place to go when you want to spend a simple and good time with your beloved or friends / family

I chose the calamar cooked on the plancha (my pêcher mignon) and really enjoyed it !!

Only dev. point: timing to be served but no big deal when people around you are nice and friendly

Visited Detres on a recommendation and were not disappointed! Everything from the decor, service, drinks, and of course food were perfect!!! You can tell that the owner and his family take care of their restaurant and their customers and should be proud of all the work done here! The most memorable part of the night was the amazing main dish of "Presa/bola de bellota"... it was cooked perfectly and the meat just melted in your mouth! The brownie was authentic to an American style brownie as well! We cannot wait to go back soon! This was one meal and restaurant we will never forget! Thanks!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is local and excellent. Charming inside, it was a old prison with stone walls. Outside is located in a quiet street.

At first we walked past this restaurant because it was quiet and quite hidden. We quickly returned though, and thank god we did! The restaurant was in the oldest building of the city; Absolutely beautiful and like travelling back in time. The service was impeccable, and the food was also incredibly delicious. Everything was so fresh and full of flavour. We have spend the past 2 weeks eating out at many different delicious restaurants but this beautiful gem stood out above all else. Absolutely fantastic!

This is a must visit Restaurant the food, atmosphere and welcome are the best you will find in the area.

The building dates back to the 12th Century and used to be a Courtroom/prison. The walls are immensely thick so help create a natural coolness to the restaurant.
The business is run by a lovely family. The Son will willingly translate the menu. The best way to eat it is to share all the food don't feel you need to order a stater and a main for everybody in your group.

The menu is different to what is available elsewhere there is a priority made on quality.
Would highly recommend
Wonton's
Calamari
Tempura Vegetables
Teriyaki Pork Ribs
T Bone Steak
Superb fresh fish
Great Wifi

This restaurant will appeal to couples and families with teenagers that like to try different food. You will not find Pizza Nuggets etc available.

One of my favourite restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of visiting.
