Review of the restaurant upstairs.

Choose this restaurant because the one we wanted to eat at was closed. It is on a busy street in the Old Town with a lot of people on the street drinking from the two bars on either side of the street. It is on the first floor. It is a pleasant surprise when you get up the stairs as... read more

Average food and very slow service. Have eaten here several times over the years. New concept this year- food was not as good as before in spite of trying to modernize he dishes. Service has never been great.

This is a review of the Otano Bar on the street level. The bar had a great crowd with a wide selection of tapas to choose from displayed on the bar. Prices were reasonable. We secured one of the last tables in the back. Waiter avoided us. Was it because we spoke English? German? Spanish? Other tables seemed to have... More

The starter I had in Otano was called "menestra de verduras" and it was delicious I recommend to anyone that loves vegetables! So many flavours and beautifully prepared. This was a very romantic meal with my partner (wasn't intended that way) but the atmosphere is very conducive to it ! Very good price for a delicious meal and great service.... More

It was very busy when I ate here last September, and when we finally did got served at our table the food was just awful. We couldn't wait to leave, and it took about 30 mins to get the bill and get out! :)

The bar had a fairly large variety of tapas but incredibly bad wine and service. I got the paired wine quickly but what annoyed me was that the people who came in after me got service. So for any single women out there I would skip this bar there are many others to choose from.
