La Buha wine bar is a newly-opened restaurant, which stands on a peaceful area, in the heart of a small village named Valdemoro. Just take into account that it is within easy walking distance from the main shopping street or the theatre. It is also by far one of the best hangout places for families and friends to spend a nice and quiet evening eating delicious home-made food.
As you enter the place, a magnificent setting and the luxuries of modernity welcome you. On top of that, it is lit up with pretty festoon lights at night, so it looks very festive on a winter’s evening.
Sitting at any table, you have a wonderful view of the workshop-like Bar where you can see the waiter working some cocktails. For those who did not book a table and are waiting, there is a cosy lounge with aged leather, along with good music and a kind atmosphere, which invites you to spend a while there. The longer you are there, the better you feel.
On the plus side, they have a children´s play carefree area nearby called Buholandia, where children can have a good time while adults can enjoy our evening. For this reason, I cannot recommend this enough!
The menu offers a wide variety of mouth-watering starters. The main course consisted of a risotto with scallop cooked in cream and some vegetables, which really thrilled us. Followed it all by a delicious apple pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. It tasted like heaven on earth. Besides, all products were freshly cooked and the dishes had the warmth of homemade food. I do believe the chefs took great care in selecting the best quality ingredients. The wine list also caters for all tastes by providing a large selection of the best wines, which are pricy but worth trying, including cocktails and beer.
With regards the service, it is the best of all. The lovely staff who were not only very attentive but friendly (a few extras “on the house”). They were always around willing to exchange some kind words with all their clients. However, if I had to say a criticism it would be that it is rather expensive, and consequently, there might be some people who cannot afford to go, and I sincerely do believe that it is a pity that such splendid place might be a luxury available to few, so my suggestion is that if you reduced the prices just a bit, it would turn La Buha into a restaurant within everyone´s reach.
Despite the rather high price of the food, I had a pleasant dining experience with food of the most exquisite flavours and children had a wonderful time as well. If you are in central Valdermoro and looking for either the authentic, tasty and fresh food, or just for a cosy and nice atmosphere while enjoying a drink, this is the perfect place for you. Just give it a shot.
