Restaurant in the old town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, near the church, with a lovely private terrace. Traditional Spanish food, day and weekend menu, dinner, snacks, drinks....
We made a lunch reservation weeks in advance. We selected this restaurant based on the high ratings, a vegan friendly menu and their early opening time of 12:30. When we arrived, we were informed that they had no reservation for us and would not be open until 1pm. We showed them our confirmed reservation on facebook, and they acknowledged that they had dropped the ball, but they still couldn't accommodate our 12:30pm reservation as the kitchen was still setting up. We had an afternoon reservation at 1:45 at El Escorial, and couldn't wait, so we had to settle on a much lessor restaurant to make it on time. Running a restaurant like this is how you lose a 'Certificate of Excellence' from Trip Advisor.Hi garhuffWe really feel the mistake made. It is true that you reserved a month and a half before, and for some reason of those that not even one understands, his reservation was noted on another day. It is true that we open at 12:30, but normally the kitchen opens at 13:00, for that reason we were not prepared, although in case of having had the reservation booked correctly, we would have taken care of them at that time.Please accept our sincere apologies, we are truly embarrassed that they were unlucky enough to pay our mistake.A cordial greetingHola garhuffRealmente sentimos mucho el error cometido. Es cierto que ustedes reservaron un mes y medio antes, y por alguna razÃ³n de esas que ni una misma comprende, se apuntÃ³ su reserva en otro dÃa. Es cierto que abrimos a las 12:30, pero normalmente la cocina se abre a las 13:00, por esa razÃ³n no estabamos preparados, aunque en su caso de haber tenido registrada la reserva correctamente, les habrÃamos atendido a esa hora.Por favor, reciban nuestras mÃ¡s sinceras disculpas, nos abochorna verdaderamente que tuvieran la mala suerte de pagar nuestro error.Un cordial saludo

PÃ¡gina dirigida a todos los amigos y clientes (el orden no altera el producto) que somos admiradores y nos encanta este lugar para disfrutar de una Cocina de temporada elaborada con productos de temporada en la lÃnea del SlowFood donde todas las opiniones
The restaurant is somewhat hidden albeit in the very center of San Lorenzo.The decorations not being the main advantage of the place, go for the Chef's recommendation. Miguel FernÃ¡ndez and his helping hand are highly professional!We had Milhoja with fine vegetables and a cold almond soup as starters and aromatic squids with a wonderful mayonnaise and an incredibly tender beef to be cooked at one's preferences as main courses. Ice creams made the meal perfect. Local wines as recommended by the friendly staff.â¬ 85 for 2, very well priced.If you look for curated Spanish cuisine by an ambitious chef: look for this restaurant.
