We went there for lunch with my five year old and there was a great range of dishes to choose from. Both vegetarian and meast options, if you decide to visit (and I advise you to), then try the pigeon as it is delicious.

I stumbled upon this place by accident and was immediately drawn in by the buzz coming from inside - that and the fact that I LOVE tapas!! The menu was classic but many of the dishes had exciting little twists. I ate the Bunuelos de bacalao with tzatziki, patatas bravas which had just the right amount of spice, and fried... More

We went there for some tapas and the white sangria on our last night. We over-ordered as everything sound so great! If you order 3 tapas per person you will just manage it. If you are not that hungry, two will do it as well. Excellent quality, friendly service. We loved the meatball and the porkbelly tapas the most.
