Came here for a quick lunch, I got a chicken fajita ciabatta it was sooo tasty and came with nachos on the side. My partner got a burger and loved it too. Perfect little place for a nice tasty lunch. Was quiet when we were there so there was no atmosphere but we enjoyed it all the same.

Stopped by as the menu looked good. We chose the seven tapas dishes for €23 but asked for all to be vegetarian. We had manchego cheese, patatas bravas, Spanish omelette, stuffed tomato, baked goats cheese, roast vegetables and bruschetta. All were lovely and more than enough for two. Before the meal fresh bread and aioli was brought out which was... More

Get the chef's order that comes with 6 or 7 different tapas. Ours came with potatoes, calamari, shrimps, veggies, chorizo sausage... Boom!

We wandered in as the restaurant and menu looked good from the outside. Lovely setting with some seats up the steep steps, and gorgeous food. We had the chef's choice, which was 6 dishes, all really tasty. Service was unhurried but attentive, we would definitely go back.

Nothing fancy, but good food and quick service. We were in a hurry and the waitress was very quick to bring our selections. It's a tapas bar, so small plates; just what we were looking for that evening. We ordered grilled vegetables; our mates ordered meatballs. All delicious.

We chanced in the little cafe by accident, while searching for somewhere for a drink. It has a warm friendly appeal from outside. Lots of candles on tables making it feel inviting. Going in we were greeted by a warm, foody smell. Although we weren't eating its made us want to stay. We had a mix of soft drinks, beer... More

After reading a few reviews for this place, we came for tapas. The menu was extensive, but there were too many meat-dishes for my taste. Food was tasty, but expensive. We didn't have to wait too long for the food, but we also did not get what we asked for.

This casual restaurant grouped with many others in an open market area is a great place for lunch (or other meal). The kitchen is slow, but when you are enjoying the patio that becomes an advantage. The menu is extensive and breakfast items as well as sandwiches, salads, and dinner entries are available all day. It's the kind of restaurant... More
