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 !

Had some very tasty little morsels in here, washed down with some exquisite red wine. I’d recommend the chilli or meatballs if you like beef. The bean stew was tidy. Hummus was good, hummus is life.
