Great food, we had 'almost' vegetarian; beans (with a little bit of chorizo), mushrooms with garlic and parsley, and sweet potato fries. All delicious. Served by a friendly, cheerful waitress ... washed down with a glass of vino .... perfect !

Not specifically, I don't think. I have always visited with adults. Tho, on one occasion there was a 14 y/o in the party, and she was well catered for, in that it's essentially a Tapas restaurant, therefore all the portions... More
