I was excited to visit this bar at the back of parallel street after reading the reviews as my partner really enjoys margaritas and empenadas, especially after visiting argentina a few years back. In short the place is ok if you speak the language. The empandas were frozen, the drinks were quite nice but nothing spectacular and one of the bar staff was quite friendly as she offered a free lemondrop shot at the end. Our food took 20 minutes to come out, our drinks took about 30-40 minutes (which one of the staff asked if we still wanted after 20 minutes!) The place was smokey with no ventilation after the empenadas were made. We had a view of a cupboard which was inconveinent for the bar staff and us, and a view of the toilet. It was uncomfortable, lighting was too bright for the night and the music was terrible, enough to drive someone insane! (squaredance). Maybe we went on the wrong night. If you want cocktails or tapas food just go on the streets of parallel, plenty of buzzing places.

Thanks for your opinion, we feel really sorry that we couldn't satisfy your expectations. We are a small, modest bar and we care about you come to have a good time while maintaining the value for money and a friendly service that does not occur at all sites especially for tourists.
