Our first time trying tapas, so armed with our voucher, we visited La Mula Obstinada to try this Spanish style of dinning.

The décor is nice,with wooden floors and a lovely stone wall separating the open kitchen from the dining room. The tables are nice, but you don't see the full glory for the paper tablecloths, presumably to help protect the tables from spillages.

We were shown to a table near the entrance on the lower floor, the concept explained and our wine order taken quickly. Wine was very pleasant, but the cheapest bottle is just over £15. The wine we ordered was not available,but was replaced by a nice Rioja for the same price.

First course was bread, cheese,cold meats, salad, olives and what we think was described as a “romana” sauce.

This was okay, with the sauce being the tastiest part. Not sure what we expected, but the bread wasn't as home made and tasty as we'd hoped. Thereafter the food arrived at a fast and furious pace, perhaps because at this point, just after 6, the restaurant was quiet.

This may be wrong,but we think that we got tortilla, and garlic mushrooms, both of which were delicious. A “kebab” of chicken, chorizo, Spanish black pudding or sausage, with onions and peppers. Again this was very tasty. Next on the list was chicken drumsticks,and “potatas bravas” (excuse the spelling). The tatties were lovely, and the chicken was succulent, but could have done with more of the sauce. The meatballs were unusual, but tasty and not too dense. They came with toasted cheese topped with fig. The disappointment was a cabbage wrapped meat ball or loaf type thing with chick peas. The chick peas were nice, but the meatball lacked flavour and wasn't very pleasant.

At this point we asked fro some time before we got any more food. After a rest we were given a bean stew, with sausage, the Spanish black pudding, and chorizo. This was possibly the best dish of the evening. We were offered another course, but settled for pudding. Cranberry ice cream was lovely, the lemon cake delicious.

Service was too quick to begin with, and seemed to be directed to the male diner rather than the female. My wife felt invisible to the male waiter who spoke only to me. This was not just us, but also the other two couples near us. Whilst he poured the wine to the men at an adjoining table first, the waitress served my wife first. Very efficient it has to be said. The waitress who brought our food was however friendly and took time to explain what each dish was.

A very pleasant experience, nice food, but probably a wee bit out of our comfort zone. A second visit when we know what to expect would probably be fair to judge this experience.

This restaurant recently lost their alcohol because their staff assaulted a council licensing officer who came to investigate a noisy lock-in. Unfortunately this site won't allow me to post a link, but it was reported in the Scotsman if you want to look it up.
