“Okay, reasonabl food, had better elsewhere on the same street.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restraunt based on some decent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were satisfied, however everything was average at best.

The food was reasonable, well cooked as hot, although the selection was small and some traditional tapas dishes were missing. Also, they had shrimps on the menu but served us prawns, which we found a bit perplexing.

There was little atmosphere here... A Spanish football game was on the tv while we were there.

Also, the waiter was too keen to move us on (presumably to free up the table).

All in all a reasonable night, fairly priced, however without going the extra mile that I look for when away and eating in a European city.

“Very friendly and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stumbled across this place on Sunday evening and were pleasantly surprised! We shared a bottle of cava, which was only EUR11 - very reasonably priced - and also some yummy tapas. The guys that work there are extremely friendly and welcoming. So much so, they even tempted us into dessert - we shared the creme catalunya and the cheesecake, which were both FAB!! Would definitely recommend this place, and will definitely return!

“Nice little bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

I went there with my family after reading reviews on tripadvisor. It was all true and the food was delicious and good value. We've ordered a selection of tapas and after all we couldnt eat the main dish. The mushrooms and the steak tapas were just great! Also very good mojitos. Staff very friendly

“New years eve dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Fab restaurant. In a great location (near Milk cocktail bar). Food was quite exceptional and a very reasonable set meal price. Staff were great. Dani the manager went out of his way to make our booking possible. Only negative was the location of our table. Felt a bit excluded. Would definitely go back and / or recommend.

“Okey place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Definitely over rated! Average food. Good service, wine, coffee and tiramisu. Bad location and dull interior.
