This restaurant is a little out of the town centre but worth the walk. It only has a small street frontage, the seating is upstairs, so keep an eye out. The food is tapas style and very tasty. Recommended.

Real hidden gem, does not look much from outside, but the lady downstairs escorts you up to the first floor, which is really lively. Food was quick, delicious and well priced. Definitely going again.
