This place was amazing: great location on a secluded square with outdoor seating, lively atmosphere (can get pretty busy during peak times), however the best thing about it was the food - fresh fish generously portioned & reasonably priced, with delicious accompanying wine. The service can get slightly brusque sometimes but as it's such a popular place the waiters can... More

It was recommended to us by the hotel reception and i think this is the best advice anyone ever gave me during my trips. Excellent food, fresh and diversified. The wine list is also rich and very tasty. To avoid ruining your experience, expect a long waiting time (or reserve before) as well as an average service.

A very busy square that is off the beaten track. Recommended originally by our hotel. We were given a great table even though it was 9.45 pm. We made our order and sat and watched the street theatre the waiters created shuffling people into tables, bringing out the food, working extremely hard but adding to a great atmosphere. We sampled... More

Most of our dishes were quite good, including a pleasant swordfish and nice tapas, although the tuna was quite overcooked. However the nicest is not the gastronomic part but the very pleasant atmosphere on this small plaza that is covered with tables and busy waiters (so busy in fact that service is not very fast, although clearly not catastrophic as...

Looked like a decent place with nice seating. The staff is few in numbers and frantic to serve everyone seated, so expect a wait. The food may be labeled traditional or local but that doesn't stop it from being bad an over priced. Best example being the salad which was canned tuna dumped on top of wilted veg. Avoid!

Difficult to read some reviews without amazement as this place was excellent !! Yes it can become very busy ..this due to the simple fact that its so good !! The Seabass is so fresh you can detect the actual seasalt in the fish itself !!! very good service by good humoured staff. No complaints whatsoever.

Busy after about 9pm. Staff friendly and speak some English. Tapas plentiful along with 1/2 and full raciones. Whole fish looked good but you will pay. Anchovies were great. Calimaries a little hard. More fish type restaurants along the next street. Would try this one once, but plenty of others! Location is lovely in a small square.

Avoid this place. Looks very nice, staff is seems to be friendly and helpful before you order - after that - no interest. This place is too expensive regarding their service.

Stumbled across this place when walking about from the forts and instantly loved the bustling atmosphere and the outside seating. The food was great. The langoustines on the grill were large and delicious. I enjoyed making a mess of the table but cracking into them all. The ox tail is also a must. Such tender meat if a little tricky... More
