Juan happens to be a passionate fan of the major Spanish football club, Real Madrid.
He is also a follower of the jazz musician, Jamie Cullum.
La Taberna operates a unique formula which works admirably, whereby the fillet steak meals are accompanied by a moderate portion of crisp and dry saute potatoes and home-made coleslaw.
I ordered the steak - medium done - with a Roquefort cheese sauce. it was simply sumptuous. There was no fat at all and it was so juicy, too.
I sat outside La Taberna at a pavement table.
The bill came to €27, including the tip.
Juan brought me a tumbler of Irish Cream before I bade them Farewell.
