A commemorative plaque on the corner of Monserrate and Obrapía testifies to the age of this restaurant –founded in 1896– where you can certainly find most of the more typical plates from the Iberian peninsula. However, food is not everything, which is why the surroundings are decorated in the best Spanish tradition, aided by a group of musicians who perform well-known songs from Spain. This restaurant is not only one of the oldest in the city, it is also one of the most popular, which is why it is normally full. The walls still have a colonial air about them, and are adorned with Spanish paintings, posters of famous bullfighters and scarves hanging from racks. All the more typical Spanish dishes are available, including “fabada” which is a type of stew based on pork and beans, and “cocido” that includes chickpeas and pork, among other ingredients.
