The ‘House of the Grandfather’ is an ageless, popular place, which recently passed its centenary. The traditional order here is a chato (small glass) of the heavy, sweet El Abuelo red wine (made in Toledo province) and the heavenly gambas a la plancha (grilled prawns) or gambas al ajillo (prawns sizzling in garlic on little ceramic plates).

They cook more than 200kg of prawns here on a good day. There's another branch over in Salamanca.
