They’re establishments that you recommend to your friends and take guests spending a few days with you to somewhere you know they won’t be disappointed.

GRA SoleteLos Soletes are awarded by gastronomic experts all over the country. They don’t only use their personal experience to guide them in their assessment but also take into account how customers feel by observing them and just how popular these establishments are. The ‘inspectors’ by the way turn up without letting on that they’re coming and leave again unannounced.

So far there are 1,000 Solete recipients spread over 50 Spanish provinces and Restaurante Los Geraneos is one of them!
