This place is LUSH!

I feel a bit bad doing this review because El Molino is the sort of place I'd prefer to keep to myself, but it's so very good in there that it seems a crime that there isn't a single review on it on the net (from what I could see, anyway).

I went there just last week for my sister's bday. It's the second time I've been and was as good as I remembered the first time.

The food is amazing. It really is. Packed with flavour and very Spanish. For instance, the owner recommended the garlic bread when I asked for regular garlic bread. I protested when he described it as having tomato and allsorts on it since all I was looking for was something simple and tasty and garlicky. In the end thoough we relented and agreed to try 'just one slice' between the three of us. Who could have imagined that a slice of bread, some tomatoes, a bit of olive and a dash of seasoning could come together to create such heaven??! Believe me, it can. And that was just the beginnng. Everything else we had was just as simple but very well made and packed with flavour. I used to go to Barcelona a lot and loved the food there. This food reminds me of that quality. Very authentic.
What makes this all the more attractive is the fact that it is all very good value and the staff are friendly too. All of which together makes for a good night out, especially in this straitened times.
