One from our party of five, suggested a visit to Taberna Miguel, and from the outset, the friendly and helpful staff made us feel at home.

The dining room appears to be an old vaulted brick ceiling with stone and block walls, complete with rough hewn oak beams. On tapping the walls it became evident that what we were looking at was an all fibreglass simulation of brickwork, wood beams. rough stones and blocks, and it was very, very, well done! Nice linen, well spaced tables, but oh dear, the seats were typically Spanish, bolt upright! But for what we were about to receive, I’ll forgive them for that. Separately, there is a Tapas/Wine bar.

From the comprehensive menu, for a starter, I picked the Gazpacho, others had Seafood Croquettes, Battered Fried Aubergine in Miel de Cana, and for mains our choice was Rabo de Toro (Oxtail) In a sauce that challengers my wife’s recipe, Leg of Lamb, Turbot, Suckling pig, and Lamb chops, What says it all, is that none of our party left a thing on their plates, save the bones! No apple sauce available to go with the Suckling Pig brought apologies and a promise that they will have some next time.

Alas a big disappointment
by: Anonymous

The first time I came to this restaurant we, two ladies, were received with the most honour. The food was good so I decided to have dinner on my own here.
I choose the lengua. It is enough for me because I am not a big eater!

The service at the start was polite. However, the fish had a bitter taste on one side of the skin. When they took the plate I didn't get the chance to tell because they are not walking but running in this restaurant.
When the check came there was a bread on the account I didn't eat.
It is not for that one euro that I called them back but there was not even a word of excuse! No, I did not like the food nor the behaviour. I will not come back here.
