“Tapas with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Wonderful atmosphere in this back-street eatery that serves the most delicious selection of tapas. As you'll see from photos by other contributors the tapas almost look like fancy cakes. Very tasty and some slightly more unusual choices (I particularly loved a wrap rolled to resemble an ice cream cone, which was filled with cream cheese infused with orange zest and sultanas).

The dessert counter had a lovely selection of items to finish the meal with including a honey-cream pot and a choice of cakes. Very good value for money in a fascinating environment.

“The good reviews are right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This is a cute place, the server was excellent (and patient!), the tapas were delicious, and we were among only four non-locals there. She was helpful meeting our requests to try local wines and our food arrived promptly. Would definitely go back.

“Felt Like A Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

A young man at the front desk of our hotel referred us to this restaurant. Good thing we got there early, as it soon filled up with locals. We decided on tapas and our charming young waitress said she would pick a selection for us that she thought we would enjoy. And we did!
