When we first walked in it was apparent they're trying to cater to an American audience or to Dutch visitors interested in American stuff...? I'm not sure. We decided to try it anyway. American music played the entire time. The menu was interesting but we...More

Delightful spot on Spanish waters, with welcoming staff. Unusual drinks that were delicious. We decided on appetizers and tapas, which was a good choice. Lobster/crab combo, stuffed mushrooms, tuna carpaccio (it was all great). Don’t miss it!
