Restaurante El Aguador:
Restaurante - Spanish food - paellas - pizzas
The Aguador is a traditional family-run restaurant serving typical Spanish food.
It offers a wide selection of dishes, including grilled meats, rice dishes such as paella and pizzas.
In the summer months, there is a pleasant terraza where you can eat outside.
The name aguador comes from the men who used to supply water to the houses using containers strapped to a donkey.
It is only in the last 60 years or so that all houses have running water.
Previously water was channelled into Aljibes (large water tanks) and there was a high demand for water deliveries. There is a statue of an aguador outside the restaurant.
The restaurant is located right in the centre of the city in a semi pedestrian area near to the cathedral.
It is just a short walk to the pleasant Bib Rambla square famous for the flower stalls and just around the corner from the Alcaiceria which is a few streets that have retained a distinct Arab atmosphere and architecture. These are excellent places to visit on a stroll before or after visiting the restaurant.
As well as the dining room and outside terraza there are two bars: one is more modern and the other is more traditional. A wide range of drinks including tapas are on offer.
