Small place, but nice feel. Good for folk on their own too, not a stuffy restaurant, despite my son being told to take his feet off chair, quite right too!! No good really for veggies (not many places in Spain are). We had the selection of seafood which consisted on octopus, muscles, prawns, clams and squid. It has to be... More

Really friendly wait staff and a nice ambience, not too fancy. The one complaint would be that the beef was overcooked. To be fair we never specified how we wanted it done but the waiter didn't ask. My dining companion was convinced it was pork just to give you an idea.

Great steamed crab. Great pineapple desert! Kind service. Prime location. Wife loves that. Nice white wine. Second visit. Loved large steak and salad with tomato and cheese. FYI. This is my first review. Two thumbs up!!

First of all, this little hole in the wall has so much atmosphere- it's absolutely beautiful and modern! We had some wonderful food here and even helped us with the translation of the menu. The coffees were a little on the small side for the price but still fantastic. This is just what we needed after the regular food along... More

The Tapas was so good and so plentyful, along with the staff being so friendly - without any other agenda than to llok after you. We enjoyed the food so much we returned that evening for dinner. Superb value and very friendly - local trade seemed to be high - which is always a very good sign. I'm looking forward... More

This little bar/restaurant it's in the path of the Cathedral. It's has all components to be another touristy unappealing place but nevertheless luckily it is not. Good variety in local tapas of seafood and earth as well. Fresh and good quality ingredients. Friendly service and accommodated prices. We left very happy! Recommendable.

A tapa place like many of the other restaurants in the old town. Small and cozy, a few meters from the cathedral. We had tapas like, calamari’s, tortilla, croquet’s and by the end we had a great shrimp risotto, I think it was one of the best risottos I have tasted. The staff is very friendly my guess is that...
