Booked to go at lunchtime as it was fully booked in the evening. Amazing setting. The food and service was excellent and they were able to cope with me being gluten-free very easily. My only gripe is that ‘pork’ wasn’t labelled on the menu. Bacon...More

We had a wonderful meal at the Parador, exquisite! Love the "amuse-bouche" they send out before your meal, good selection of wines, and lovely food. Enjoyed it very much.

4 of us ate here and 2 had good food while 2 were not happy with their cod dish. Service attentive without being annoying, loud piano player, good atmosphere.

The setting is beautiful: vaulted ceilings, fine linens, lovely tiled mural. Our meal was accompanied by an excellent pianist playing in the background. The service was refined and gracious. The food was very good, but not stupendous, although the plating was elegant and it was...More
