On a recent visit to El Padrino we were pleased that they could accommodate us earlier than the usual evening dining period. The service was excellent and our meals were quite flavorful. I certainly recommend this fine establishment.

I have just finished hands down the most incredible meal of my life so far. Skip the starters and save room for the most incredible buttery, delicious, melt in the mouth iberico presa el padrino (cooked poco hecho) of my life. Once in a lifetime....Trust me on this one - you will not be disappointed.More

Have been here before. Reason for returning was the reasonably priced mature wines. This time I tried a 2007 Pintia for 45€ that was as it should be. In heaven.....

First of all, it opens only at 9pm friday and weekend. You need to be early to catch a place. But it worth, their ham is from their own pigs which taste amazing. I advise to take the neck pig dish if you have a...huge appetite. Overall it was a very nice eveningMore

We had a great meal with lots of atmosphere in a rustic building which is typical of the area. The mixed cold cuts of meat including the delicious Jamon were a fantastic way to start and washed down with cold beer and house wine. The...shoulder of pork was huge and cooked to perfection. A great find and a shame they are only open at the weekend.More

Both had lunch and dinner here. You can dine both inside and outside. The restaurant is popular so reservation is required, unless You are lucky. The food is simple but good. Presa Padrino is a cut from the black pigs neck. Fried medium rare (at...the most) - You wan't believe it is meat from a pig when You se the beautiful dark color of the meat. Juicy and tender - try it! Congo with rosemary and lime was wonderfully flavored. The dishes are simple so they come only with fries, that are not worth eating, but there are plenty of meat. The wine celler has quite an impressive collection of fine spanish wine, that You would not expect to find in a small village. Some of the wines are fully mature and are for a very reasonable price. The temperature in the celler are not quite "celler temperature" more like 19 degrees, why I was reluctant to to try a bottle with more than 10 years of aging, as I found it a bit risky. But You can get 2008 Vina Ardanza, 2007 Pintia, 2005 La Rioja Alta and 2003 Vina San Roman for between 26 € and 39€. You will need a bucket of ice water but I get so happy when I can get mature wines and a restaurant in Spain for less than a far from mature bottle bought in the wine store in Denmark...More

Really good and not too expensive food. Iberian meats are juicy and tasty in here. Also not very expensive. Paid 35 E for big dishes with wine and water. Try to experiment and take the pieces of pig you did not try before- like salivary...glands :)More
