Went there with friends for dinner. Perfect service, really good advice on wine and meals. Food was correct prepared and tasty. Not much to say than "we will be back!"

The service is friendly, you'll get a good fresh fish but ... we've been there only once, the competition (tip: very close) is too good by comparison.

6 a Tapas for €25 including 2 drinks - bargain Waiter is a bit of a joker but all good. Not the best tapas I've ever had but was ok just to pop in one night if you're not too hungry. First visit, may visit again.

Great restaurant, *we guess* ran by father and daughter, who do a great job at making you feel welcome. We had salmon toast and caesar salad which were both a treat.
