La Tartería gets its name from the time it was opened with the idea of selling only cakes, “tartas”. It is considered one of the best cake shops in Spain.
Nowadays, this restaurant located in Arties is much more than just a cake shop. The restaurant La Tartería, with a personal and creative cuisine where the sauces have special importance, offers a very special atmosphere where even the smallest detail has been taken care of. It is an appropriate restaurant for a romantic dinner with your partner.
Ares, expert cook, together with her husband, Juan Antonio, have transformed the cake shop into a truly classy restaurant. She is full of enthusiasm, love and affection, which is reflected in the dishes she passionately prepares for her clients to enjoy. For example, we could taste the foie in three textures, poached eggs or vegetables with red wine sauce and poached egg.
We also recommend the steak tartar but even better, the monkfish “sea and land”, which is delicious but above all cooked to perfection, juicy and fresh.
The desserts menu is a tribute to the origin of the business; truly wonderful sweets such as apfelstrudel, tatin, linz, sacher, black forest, marquise, pears amandine and fruits of the forest crumble, all homemade.
The average price of 40€, excluding the wine, seems very reasonable taking into account the quality of the cuisine and the atmosphere. You will understand why the wine is not included once you see the amazing wine menu available at the restaurant. It is a question of a personal choice, choosing a good wine or enjoying the excellence of a Clos Montblanc or a Pinot Noir. Without any doubt, one of the best wine offers in the whole of the Aran Valley.
