Really good food and fast service. Specially the mussels were delicious. This restaurant seems to be popular, because it was challenging to get a table.

Get there early, ie by 7:15 pm, if you want a seat, this is a happening place up by the market. Always full, always humming. We loved the tappas and the mussels and fries. Also enjoyed the seafood dishes. Went there twice in our week.

The staff here are amazing, we came when it was super busy but they kept everything flowing superbly. We ate from the starters/tapas menu and it was plenty for dinner.

It's all about fried & tattoos & blingbling. Nice place with high DNA. Sorry guys - you lost the experience. You lost the roots. It's more important to see the newest tattoos - and the very glamorous watch stuff@ service . Service with horrible finger...More
