The tale says that the seventh son of a family (with no daughters between) on Friday nights becomes a wolf... ("lobizon"). El Lobizon is the name of a famous restaurant, situated at the basement of an old house; small tables, thistle chairs, half-light and soft music, make this place very special.

Dice la leyenda que el séptimo hijo varón de una familia (sin niñas en medio) los viernes de noche se transforma en lobizón... "El Lobizón" es el nombre de un famoso restaurante, situado en el sótano de una vieja casona; mesitas, sillas de cardo, penumbra y música suave hacen de éste un lugar muy especial.

Favorite Dish: The most famous dish here is the gramajo (scrambled eggs with fries, onions and ham), and I highly recommend pollo al ajillo (chicken with garlic); the sangria is a "must" as well.

El plato más famoso es el gramajo (revuelto de huevos, papas, cebollas y jamón), y yo recomiendo calurosamente el pollo al ajillo; la sangría es un clásico del local.
