“Average spanish tapas, poor service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I've beehere with my wife for dinner. The place it's quite nice and the atmosphere good.

We ordered different spanish tapas from Ham, cheese and seafood. I'll strongly reccomand the croquette de jamon and the Jamon Serrano. We ordered, also, some seafood as shrimps and squid but they werent good at all. If you're planning to go here take mainly meat tapas.

Service it's okish but they made a mistake on two of our order. Not a big deal but i wasn't expecting to receive a different dish.

Prices are quite high considering that you're eating tapas.
