Breakfast in the sun

Lovely smiley lady greeted us and made us feel very welcome. Just stopped for a bite to eat for breakfast, limited menu - more toasties than pastries but settled for yogurt and fruit which was a massive portion for all 3 of us to share! Orange juice freshly squeezed - Wonderful!

The ambience in this restaurant is lovely, its quite dark, warm and cosy and the presence of the cat adds to the homely feel. We were given free bread at the start of the meal which was delicious. I had the fajitas for the main course which came with an enormous selection of fillings including beef and chicken, peppers and... More

Good service and the food was outstanding - excellent tapas selection. Pretty good location as well - close to the Red Light District but outside of it so it's quiet.

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

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.
