Great selection of Spanish tapas. Nice menu with seafood, lamb, steaks, pasta, etc. Three dining areas: terraza, downstairs bar, upstairs formal dining. Attentive and welcoming service every time! Highly recommended.

It has good food but it's nothing out of the common. Just a good place if you want to chill and it has lost a bit of the charm it used to have
