This little tapas restaurant was fab. Friendly staff who could not do enough for us, amazing food - I'd recommend the cheese and the anchovies. Mouthwatering! The cava was only 2.5 euros a glass - so cheap and very tasty! The outdoor seating is so nice as you can people watch while enjoying a nice glass of wine. Defo return.

We came here for dinner and werent massively hungry so we chose a salad, some breaded prawns, some tuna in its own butter and had them all to share between the 2 of us. All of it tasted lovely. The staff were polite and spoke excellent English. We would have gone back if we had more time.

The 3 of us ordered ribeye stakes and got different kinds of meat but they kept claiming that it was the same kind of steak. And one had tuna fish Two of the steaks were tainted meat - really smelly. The third steak was overcooked and the tuna raw. The two steaks was replaced but one of the new steaks... More

They make quite a thing in their menu of the provenance of their meat and the entrecot was indeed absolutely first class. Rest of the food and wine was good too and you get a bonus view of people wlaking past and street vendors.

My friend and I came here with her Spanish friends for dinner with their children. They ordered a mixed grill, which came with sausages and assorted meats. I had the pork loin, which was delicious and tender. It came with fries. Someone else had fish with grilled vegetables. We all had a very nice dinner and it was in a... More

Sidewalk tables with tablecloths and no glaring picture posters of generic food plates. Fairly priced seafood and meat items served by a friendly staff. Go inside and view their homemade prepared items in their glass case. Fresh, tasty, well prepared. Dinner inside might be a better choice. There is a descent wine selection. Location is in a small shaded alleyway... More

Went here with my wife last night. Great location down a busy side street with lots going on. My wife ordered chicken skewer which she said was very nice. I ordered the solomillo well done. When it came it was blue so sent it back. Not great but I have to say the second time round it was excellent. Good... More
