“map deluded us”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

this apparently is a must eat tapas place...er not!

“Attractive restaurant, very popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Nicely located with tables inside and out. The waitresses couldn't do enough for you including letting us know when an outside table became available as they were all taken when we arrived. The food was delicious, hot and good value but we had a long wait (50 minutes) as they were very busy. Definitely recommend.

“Good choice of veggie tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We ate here twice and would happily go again.
Most of us are vegetarians so we enjoyed the good selection of veggie tapas. There were also selections of meat and fish/seafood tapas as well.
We thought the prices were ok, but remember that tapas are small dishes so you will need to order a few.
The outside and inside were nice and the staff were friendly.
We would happily recommend the restaurant and we will visit again if in the area.

“only go here if you are a wealthy anorexic with no taste buds!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Well, we have been here today. Am not normally one to bother writing reviews but, as this was so so so bad, here goes....We had some friends visiting us from Madrid and as we had never been to this restaurant before, thought it might be worth a go. The weather was very warm and we all just fancied something light to eat and tapas seemed like a good idea. Anyway-it wasn't! 60 something euros later, we had had houmous(strangely flavoured with ginger instead of garlic and not even a hint of tahini), chicken wings(which looked like drumsticks from a quail(even the ten year old who ate them said they tasted ok, but 'what exactly were they?)),batatas bravas-nothing brave about them, apart from the audacity to actually call them that-they were having a laugh! Almondegas(meatballs) smaller than my poor, castrated poodle's once were-and, only 4 of them in a faintly dishwatery never really met a tomato sauce. Calamares were okay but the 'orrible mayonnaise yuckiness that accompanied them was anything but. The one saving grace was that the youngest member of our party ordered a burger, apparently he does it all the time. Good on him I say, he is clearly wiser than his six years because he definitely got the best deal and to be fair, it looked quite yummy but who am I to steal from the mouth of a hungry baby? In case you haven't guessed already, I would recommend never ever ever go here. It's rubbish although the staff were very pleasant and I feel quite sorry for them working in such a place-so if you do go, refuse to pay for your meal and leave them a handsome tip instead:)

“Good tapas in a quieter part of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

This tapas bar has good food and lots of nice outside tables across from the large church building. We ate here twice for lunch. The Bachalau bras cod dish is very good, as well as the octopus salad and smoked pork with potatoes. The diablo mussels are a good kick with the sangria.
