About 20-something years ago this was one of the special treat places I used to go for affordable and good quality grilled meats and other dishes. And it’s just a stone’s throw from where I live now. But while it’s still a “cheap & cheerful” spot, and the menu hasn’t changed much, Coloniales was bought out many years ago and has lost a lot of its heart. The house specialities still include the ‘tablas’ which are thick cut slices of toasted country bread with a variety of toppings, such as salmorejo with jamón serrano and quail eggs. Other popular favourites are the various solomillo (grilled pork tenderloin) tapas that are offered with a variety of sauces – ‘al whisky’, roquefort, ‘a la castellana’.
The food is basic and good value for money if you are fond of potatoes. It seems to be very popular with students these days. The terrace facing the square fills up fast, but you can write your name on the chalkboard waiting list and have a drink at the bar while you wait for a table.
