This year it was the gourmet hamburger, in New York or London style. They offered an Asian tapa. It came in a white cardboard... More

I made a reservation for 3 and it was confirmed via email. It was for 23:00. We showed up and they had no record of the reservation. We decided to wait... More

When you enter a restaurant and are surrounded by locals that, to me, is good sign you are going to get great Spanish food.....this did not disappoint. Made a last minute reservation to try the seven course tasting with pairing of wine and was fun and tasty.

We had the tasting menu (7 tapas, 2 desserts, 4 wines, 40€/person) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was very good, with nice deviations from the standard tapas you often see. The wines were local, harmonised well with the food and really wore excellent. The waitress was very attentive, always bringing new wines and tapas at the right time (but... More

Was lucky enough to be introduced to this place by a local, I doubt you would find it by chance. Fantastically interesting range of food, great wine and really good service. I'll be back!

This is primarily a wine bar, but they serve gourmet tapas as well. First impression is, that the designer of the interior of the restaurant must have had a really good time, as some of the lamps are wine bottles with feathers in birdcages and they use half-empty wine glasses as decoration on the wall. The interior is at the... More

After reading about this restaurant we decided to go early when the place opened as we did not have reservations. It was very conveniently located for us , only 5 minutes walking distance from our hotel. Everything we ordered was delicious, we especially enjoyed the cava and cheese plate. The anchovies with the tomato on bread was very fresh and... More
