Mesón Mariano is an unpretentious, friendly, family-run place, nicely kept up by Mariano and his family and staff, with efficient and helpful service. And the food is excellent, too. “La Reina de la Casa” (queen of the house) is the artichoke, which is expertly prepared several ways. We tried them fried and braised and loved both.
The other house specialty here is chivo (baby goat), which we tried “al ajillo”, a big plateful of tender stewed garlicky meat served with chips, that left us wanting more (but not wanting more, if you know what I mean). Bring your appetite, and perhaps a couple of friends, to share a few plates with. There is also a bar section for tapas.
