“julie n chris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Went to this restaurant/cafe on my partners daughters recommendation, we were not disappointed. Food was lovely and well presented. A lovely rustic restaurant on the corner of a very nice neighbourhood.

“Great Spanish food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Luckily after reading reviews on here we booked a table. Even though it was a Tuesday evening they were turning people away. All the pintos are displayed as you go in and each one explained by the helpfull staff. They range from 3 to 5 euro each. We chose 4 to share and then had a main meal each. The 'lamb chop' pintos was outstanding. Very friendly staff, don't know why others have had a problem! retraining perhaps. Anyway we had a great evening.

“Very much topday and not "Manyana"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We were recommended to the street where this restaurant was located and having looked at various places chose this one on a busy and very warm night. As soon as we entered we were greeted in perfect English and given our choice of seating. there was an excellent choice of both "pinxtos" and "A La Carte" and a reasonable wine list. The staff were pleasant and efficient throughout the meal and the food was well prepared. It was not cheap but we felt we had value for money. There was a good mixture of both locals and tourists and a very good atmosphere.

“Supposed to be spanish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The restaurant is supposed to be Spanish food. It just looks like. However the food is rather good and the wine list is interesting.
Service is not meeting your expectations. No "hello", no "good bye". The girls are really speed.
If no choice, go there. The place is quite peaceful and trendy. But if you can go somewhere else, do it !

“Amazing range of pintos to choose from”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

They had about 26 pintos for us to choose from - you point out what you would like and they bring them when cooked. Absolutely delicious. Staff were very helpful in explaining what was on each pintos and service was prompt. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices. MUST BOOK or you probably wont get a table.
