El Sol y La Luna
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
If you've seen the trinkets and dangling Corona bottles that adorn the walls of Mexi & Co, you'll know what to expect from its sister venue El Sol y La Luna. Here too, the food is cheap 'n' cheerful, the vibe is sociable, and the décor is set firmly on 'quirky'.
The weekday lunch menu offers the best deal: main course, dessert and a coffee for €10 (up to €19 on weekends, with a starter thrown in). The locals know it, and you should aim to arrive early if you want to find a seat. The menu throws up a lot of Latin American dishes but few surprises: tortillas, quesadillas, soups, salads, burritos and (delicious) empañadas are the order of the day here. If you're after subtlety you're best off trying somewhere else, but if you're hungry and looking for a stopgap you could hardly do better.
A word of warning: prices jump at dinnertime to €28 for a set menu including a starter and a cocktail.
