We shared a mixed salad for starter and had the mixed Paella for 2 and the food was excellent. We had an excellent white Rioja for 10 Euro and the owner / chef brought us a homemade Tiramisu to share without prompting and did not charge us.

This is the restaurant where you will feel as one of your friends (who knows how to cook delicious meals) invited you for dinner. The ambient is very friendly and the food is great! If you like desserts, try tiramisu or natillas, those were our favorites. We went several times and tried many different things, all the food was of... More

Myself and my girlfriend were looking for somewhere to spend the evening of our fifth anniversary and having read previous reviews for this place I detected a pattern; Really great food but very quiet restaurant. Sure enough when we turned up last night (a Saturday) there was only one other table occupied. It's only a little 26 cover place so... More

As we were the only ones at the restaurant we were not expecting great food but we were surprised by the quality. Everything tasted homemade. Albondigas were excellent and we could not stop dipping bread in the sauce. The little squid were very tasteful and the meat was of great quality. A final touch of homemade liquor was a great...

The food is very good, and the guy who runs it is also very nice, the only problem we found was being the only people in the restaurant we found it lacking in ambence
