It is a little restaurant just a few metres away from the town hall square, and is a place that skiers cannot miss eating in winter, to regain strength, before they go back to Valencia.
This establishment belongs to the Gargallo family, producers of ham and pork products in the area, for this reason the menu (among other things) is based on these products.
They enjoy making sandwiches, adding tomato, fried peppers, warming the bread, etc. delicious although they have reduced the number of varieties.
The paté with chestnuts and mushrooms, with toasted bread, is very good, and also the “patatas a lo pobre” with egg, together with different salads and other dishes.
They also sell good food products, and the service is charming.
They manage the neighbouring Jaime I Hotel, which offers in its dining room, excellently served and prepared, an exquisite menu for €16. Both places are highly recommended.
I have to give the highest mark to the service in general, to the manager of the La Trufa Negra Hotel, Jorge, and to the assistant manager, Chimo, who we have known for some time, they are an example of friendliness and efficiency.
Nice music, tables well set and very good decoration, the paintings by Calo which decorate the hotel are a fantastic choice, and the design elements very well chosen.
I had the opportunity to try the noodles with truffle and mushrooms, to try again the paté with violet jam, and the cod, these three dishes are specialities of the house and they are permanently on the daily set menus which the restaurant offers. The three dishes are highly recommended and a great choice.
From Monday to Friday, they offer a magnificent set menu for €15 in this fantastic environment. A tasting of “escalibada”, compliments of the house to start. Pate with violet jam for the first course, pork fillet with truffle sauce for the second course or caramelised leg of duck, and for dessert a fantastic curd cheese tart. It is this menu that I really recommend.
