If you bother to read some reviews you'll quickly get a feel for this place. It's not a restaurant. It's not Heston Blumenthal or Alain Ducasse. It's an informal tasting experience made all the more enjoyable by the bonhomie of mine host Francisco, and his passion for the dishes he serves.
Booking ahead is (normally) essential, as numbers are strictly limited, but that in itself adds to the informal atmosphere. This is like being a guest at one of Francisco's dinner parties. He explains the history of each course (we had around 13 in total) - olives, meats, fish, cheeses, chocolates, and some splendid wines, all of which were of the "as much as you like" variety.
Excellent value for money, and highly recommended as something a little different from the norm.
