The Gran Café was recommended to us by friends and isn't mentioned by any tour guide we've come across. It is part of a group of restaurants but it is very individual and original. The building is 1920's in style and has three floors, including some private dining rooms for larger parties. It's a very attractive, unpretentious place that gets very busy after 21:00. We arrived after 22:00 midweek and had to wait 30 minutes for a table. It was worth the wait though. A good range of mainly traditional dishes available at reasonable prices. Live music provided by a pianist. Definitely worth a visit!
