This restaurant is located in the Rue des Bouchers, a narrow pedestrian Street full of restaurants and of course, tourists. All the restaurants of this area offer menus with a main course, dessert and beverage. In the front of all, there are annoying guys trying to catch customers. This specific restaurant is not an exception and offered this type of... More

We went to a business trip. We went to this restaurant on Sunday night. They said the price is 12 euro-15 euro but they brought us a big order and price per person is 45 euro. We could not eat anything. It was horrible and we left the restaurant with the amount of 248.50. These people are blocking your way... More

Avoid. A scam for tourists. A sign in front of the restaurant shows 12-15€ dishes, but inside they don't give you a menu and the waitress shows you only photos with no prices. When the check came, a dish for 2 was 90€! The waitress was also very rude.

I wish we had of read these reviews earlier. Our experience was terrible. The steak we ordered was well done, but was so tough we could barely cut it with a knife. The final insult was 5 Euro per 600ml bottle of still water - an absolute joke!! Do yourself a favour, and go elsewhere.

After a long day of site seeing, my friends and I went to this restaurant because were craving for Paella. Boy, that was big mistake! Yes, we were very excited and we JUST wanted to have Paella, and we ordered one without looking at the menu (our fault). First, they served us each, a free glass of sangria, which was... More

Attracted by the gentleman in the street who guaranteed they were the cheapest and nicest restaurant on the stretch we were enticed by the €12 for 3 course menu. It seemed like a great offer, especially with the offer of complimentary 'champagne' if we came in. For €12 we weren't expecting much, however when the croquettes starter arrived we expected...

We were seduced by the man in the alley who sold the restaurant to us as he appeared reasonably genuine and the place looked ok.There were only a few people inside but the food took forever to come and when it did it was worse than disgusting. Awful, terrible food appeared to be cooked by a gardener or bricklayer and... More

Be careful! Avoid at all costs - a thoroughly awful experience. There are multiple menus and multiple prices - in the end we just walked away without eating. The food was supposed to be a meat platter for two, but came with a small pot of chips, a single lamb chop, a sausage and a beef burger - supposedly for... More

Do we have to give one star? We had been in delirium nearby and fancied something to eat.. Yes we were the tourists they prey on... Sure enough free drinks, in we go, some drinks come. Not our choice by any stretch of the imagination. The menus arrived, €18 the cheapest for a chicken dish.. All the rest were late... More
