We stopped here for lunch it was really good we shared fried aubergines, Padron peppers, goats cheese salad and chorizo skewers... too much really for two of us but we made a very good effort! Very nice, we recommend for lunch or dinner.

We arrived here on a Wednesday night at around 6.40pm only to be told that the kitchen didn't open until 7pm which seemed a little late for us. However, we sat down and ordered some drinks. The restaurant itself was pretty empty so no problems...More
