Great for informal tapas style sharing. Beautiful fish meat and especially vegetarian dishes and great deserts. Nice relaxed atmosphere and attentive, knowledgable and friends staff. Definitely going back - it's better than Nopi.

Excellent food, & definitely a restaurant I want to visit again, & again. Expect small tapas like dishes, & seating at a communal table, though there were private tables available for bookings. The food was wonderful, with plenty of choice for Vegetarians, hence going there....More
