The waiters in this restaurant are terribly rude and very slow. Just after we sat down a large party arrived and they took priority. We had to wait ages to be served. Once our order had been taken, the food started to arrive quite quickly....More

I was happy to see this place open - in a neighbourhood fairly devoid of tapas bars. Great to see a Spanish place offering a good selection of fresh tapas, half rations and full plates. There's paella too from 2pm. Open for traditional Spanish breakfast...More

Surrounded by real people going about their daily business made such a refreshing change from the tourists. Great fried anchovies, patatas bravas, chicken croquettes and jamon iberico with beers and coffee for 35euros. Most pleasant afternoon!

The name of the day here is to go early but not to early if you want Paella, its fresh and normally ready by 1400. Were regulars, its charming and perfect for a relaxed occasion. If you go late then most of the fresh items...More

If you are looking for very good Tapas then this really isn't the place to be eating, it was poor infact. The fish didn't really taste that great, the service was poor, we kept having to keep asking for more wine and water and when...More
