“Not sure why this restaurant is ranked so highly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The food is international and not Spanish or Catalan. The food is good and tasty.
The service is indifferent (another reviewer suggested it was the waitress' first day, I know exactly what this reviewer means) and I think I just missed the atmosphere others describe

“Nice food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this place as it was just round the corner from our hostel.

Probably more tha. Our tight budget wanted to spend however this was soon forgotten as the food tasted amazing and I don't mind paying if its good quality. Also the lady who served us was really nice and helpful when we couldn't speak any Spanish at all.

Prices are about £8-9 per tapa and you need 3-4 per couple depending on how hungry you are. This price is not expensive if you are on a regular budget at all so would definately recommend to go there

“Cosy Little Restaurant with Wonderful Staff & Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We found this place on tripadvisor and, based on the good rates & nice pictures, we decided to give a try. The place is indeed very nicely decorated (even the toilets, how bizarre that may sound), ideal for a romantic night. Staff was very helpful and extremely nice. We went for the 'coconut fried shrimps with mango sauce' followed by the 'tuna tataki'. I'm not too found of fried shrimps but they were reasonably tasteful; the tataki however was delightful - so much that we took that dish twice. Combined with two bottles of water & delivious daiquiries we paid a total of 38 EUR. Too bad we weren't that hungry 'cause the desserts look very inviting too. The free wifi was also greatly appreciated.

We chose the tasting menu (international tapas) and couldn't have been happier. The restaurant has a nice intimate feel to it and the staff were very helpful.
