We were a bit disappointed by El Tonel. While the chorizo and mixed salad were excellent, the Mussels Provençal were overcooked, the ojo de bife had a strange aftertaste and the ensalada russa didn't have a lot of flavor. The service was prompt and friendly.

Highly recommended Entrecot con guarnicion! Excellent food and best prices! Opened all the year even during low season. Amazing staff!!!
