food this place is very nice. Been there couple of years ago and the quality is still very high. Nice location. Only downside is that it took one hour to serve the food. The waiter offered a free drink after, so all in all ok.

I have been a few times here, beautiful food and good service. Have not been disappointed on any occasion I've been here. Lovely atmosphere, chilled and laid back. One of my favourite places.

After eating Spanish food for several days it was great to eat at a place (I found on TripAdvisor) that was highly rated and offered different food.

A great restaurant if you want a break from Spanish food. We found this place by accident and had some nice tapas but after reading the menu we realized there were other options like salads and grilled chicken. We came here a second night to have another great meal and decided to have a nice salad and chicken. The salad... More

This place was by far the best meal of our time in Spain, absolutely delicious tapas! We had a table outside overlooking the square - Plaza de la Merced - which is a short walk from the Alcazaba. The menu was quite extensive and much to my delight, at least a third of it was vegetarian. Huzzah! My boyfriend and... More
