This is a nice cider. I am really surprised about the density of this cider, higher than usual. Maybe it is slightly sweet, but it has a wonderful taste and density, and last but not least, it is ridiculously cheap. Worth to taste it.

This place offers nice quality, but I feel that the quality/price ratio is quite bad. Main courses, desserts, wines,... are extremely expensive.
The price of Emilio Moro finca resalso is 18 eur + VAT, which means three times more expensive than in a shop.
the price for a dessert is around 9 eur, and it is a very small portion, allthough it's true that the tray is really large...
They offer a fix price menu for lunch and dinner. I think that maybe it will be a nice option with good quality/price ratio, but if you choose the menu option, you pay around 60 eur per person. For this amount you can go to Shunka, which is much better.

This wine has a nice personality. Good texture and density. Nevertheless, its taste is slightly burnt (just in the limit of my acceptability) and slightly acide (also in the limit), as well as bitter. I prefer other cellars from the same DO. The classic ones (Raimat, Castell del Remei, Costers del Sió, etc.)

Finally I could taste the fariña primero 2010. It is surprising similar to 2009 although I think that 2009 is sliglthly better. I guess that in the next months it will reach the exact same taste of Fariña 2009.
I am a little bit dissapointed because in the past, there was a lot of variability on the taste of different fariña primero's years (vertical taste). Now, I feel that they have homogeinezed the taste.
I paid 5,7 eur per bottle at colmado quilez. This is a nice quality/price ratio.

This is a nice semi-sweet wine. I think that it is better than semidolç from Sarral. This one is more delicate, complex and balanced. I paid 4,85 for it al El corte inglés, including a free bombon package (100 gr).

This is a nice white wine. I was really surprised with this wine, which is really tasty and I think that quite balanced, although it is slightly sweet. I think that it is not too much expensive. worth to taste it.

I tasted a couple of beers. The second one, Duckstein white beer on tap matured over wood beech was superb. Probably the most tasty white beer that I have ever tasted. And it was not too much alcoholic.
Another curiosity is the large amount of information provided for the dishes (click the second photo to enlarge and read the footers).
