Again at El Elefante on a first friday of a month (February in this case). Is this a special place for food and music lovers. Unless you know it, it is difficult to guess that, behind the charming look of Tony Ponce (the owner), there is a former rock and roll musician. Tony will ask you about your meal expectations, and will recommend things to you, with good taste. Nebraska meat cooked on a hot stone on the table, delicious starters, such as duck eggs or artichokes, As is happens in all the restaurants, BUT, if you are there for dinner on the first friday of any month, after the meal you will see how Tony brings out of the case his wonderfull Fender Stratocaster Jimmy Hendrix model and together with Tito Puerta on keyboards, Arturo Blasco on his custom guitar and Nuria Almazán on vocals, they will bring you back to good old times, with tunes by JJ Cale, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Deep Purple, .... Good music, good food and good mood. Not cheap, be aware. Not stravagantly expensive by the way, but it is not a low budget restaurant. But is is undoubtely worth going there. A charming hidden place.

What a pleasant meal we had at the elefante today! The chipirones are excellent, so is the meat which is cooked on a 300 degree hot stone on your table. We also had a smaller dish of nasi goreng which was excellent. Staff is discreet and charming. You must try the sangria de cava, I've never had one as good as theirs. Will definitively return!

This was the first visit to this restaurant after several recommendations from many a local taxi driver. We chose the steak cooked on a hot rock with the steak being presented to us before it was cooked. The meal was super but actually the welcome we received was the best part of the evening from the moment we arrived on a quite Saturday night at 8.30pm. Of course by the time we left at 11pm it was just warming up. The food was excellent from the warm bread, the steak and the deserts....and the house wine at about 9 euro was also good value as is most Catalan wine. For a nice place away from the tourist beach area this is a super place with homely local service and great food. Make the effort and give it a try....
