Default Restaurante Siller, September 2011

It was 2008, on our previous trip to the area, that we last ate at Restaurante Siller. It was one of the eating highlights of that holiday and we were looking forward to going back. We were not disappointed . It seemed to us that the food had just got better – the cooking more precise, a lighter touch with the salt, presentation more refined. Service remains efficient, warm and friendly.

Bread was offered as pa amb oli – good tasty bread, fantastic fruity olive oil, topped with slices of ham.

We both went with a frito for starters – one a mariner, delicious tender squid, prawns, mussels and an unknown white fish; the other the more tradition “frit de matances”, heavy with liver. Both were well made, with crispy potato and a good hit of spicy pimento. Missing out, though, was the usual fennel flavouring.

One main course stuck to the “local” theme – lomo con col is one of those traditional dishes for which every chef seems to have a different recipe. Over the years, I’ve eaten several; versions – some good, some not so good, one or two plain bloody awful (including a vile one cooked by the brother in law’s mother, which included lung). This was a good ‘un. Pork loin, wrapped in meltingly soft cabbage; a very savoury sauce based on onions, wine and sage. Alongside, a spoonful of something very fruity – not membrillo, but akin to membrillo.

The other plate was two fillets of sea bass. Perfectly cooked, of course. The skin of both fillets had been taken off and fried to such a crispness they could stand upright, providing and elegant decoration to the palte. And, snapping a bit off, I can confirm that it was absolutely delicious and a perfect accompaniment to the soft flesh of the fillets.

Veg were served on a separate dish – carrot courgette, broccoli, potato dauphinoise and a lovely little yellow pepper, stuffed with rice and topped with tomato sauce.

As often, we passed on dessert but did have excellent strong coffee. With a couple of glasses of wine and bottle of water, the bill was just on a very reasonable €75.

Have always thought this was the best food in the Port, by quite a long way, and your review confirms it - have also never understood why it is not busier but suspect that one day soon it will be 'discovered'... To those who have stated in the past that they find the service in some way pretentious, I would say that a) you are wrong; and b) do give it another try. The owner is delightful, has never been anything other than charming and polite towards us (even when accompanied by two grumpy toddlers). The last time we ate there - on the final evening of our holiday and an evening of torrential rain - he presented us with a gratis bottle of his own wine as we left, to cheer us up... and very good it was too.

Have returned today after a glorious two weeks in PP and despite being visitors for about 15 years, this was our first venture into Restaurante Siller.
It's now without question our favourite venue. The food and service are superb
Previous posts suggested that the owner was sometimes "difficult", but in our case this was most certainly not true.
Not a cheap option, but no dearer than say Posito's or Los Zarzales.
We dined there twice and the experience was the same on both occasions.
Not easy to find, but seek it out, you will not be disappointed
