Santiago de la Ribera - El Senorio
02/07/16 – Nick Thorold
Heard about it, told it was very good , they lied ... It was superb.Dinner for 4, 2 fish dish starters, large house salad, 4 steaks ( cooked as requested, medium rare was medium rare,well done was well done all cooked on wood burner grill). Served with French fries and a small portion of ratatouille, peppercorn sauce was very tasty. Child friendly, some Italian style pasta dishes available. Dinner at 8, nice cold draught beer with glasses out the freezer on request.
Crowd was all British ( around 80 diners) from 8.00-10.00 then around 50-60 Spanish diners on the later sitting. Sat outside in a wonderful courtyard style with bar and fountain and had the football on a huge screen. Very very clean establishment, service was very good, told it's a family run place and has been open for 25 years now.
I suggest swerving the starters apart from maybe the house salad and make sure you have a home made dessert ..... One word !! AMAZING ! If you order the bread with your starter its toasted but larger than a baguette, drizzled with oil but a very garlicky side of tomato.
A couple of bottles of Rioja priced at €25.00 and dinner for 4 and a few drinks and desserts ... Just about €150.00 and well worth it. Highly recommend 8.5/10
