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 individual and original. The building is 1920's in style and has three floors, including some private dining rooms for larger parties. It's an attractive, unpretentious place that gets 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.
