Chose on spec on a quiet Sunday evening in Nov 2015, a group of 5 adults.

Great welcome, great food, great wine, great service. Unexpected complimentary canapes and "night cap"!

At the recommendation of our concierge we walked up a street of fairly empty restaurants to find Don Canape full. No problem...they managed to find jus a table and it was quickly clear why this was the chosen destination for so many. When the huge dish of canapé arrived and we were told this was "on the house" we were... More

Took the daily menu. By the time we got to the main course we were full. 17euro each was a great price for all the food and drinks. If you plan on eating a paella make sure you call a day in advance.

I have written in my previous review of how we were introduced to this restaurant twenty five years ago by a Danish man and we have been going there since. On one of the many times we dined there on our... More

It was 7 years since we last visited this restaurant, it was great then and it still is. Superb service superb food. However, the quantities are not for the faint hearted. I hate not being able to clear my plate but had to admit defeat on the two occasions we went there last week. Over the last 29 years that... More

They start with a tray (not a plate) of canapes on the house, what a treat. You just need a main course. Try the steak, if it is not right today he will tell you. Fish is also excellent.
