Although a little expensive, dining at Botero is worth the price tag as the food is simply wonderful.......fresh and flavourful and served by a terrific team of friendly staff. To avoid disappointment it's necessary to book a table in the restaurant as every night is...More

The true art of cocktail making is dedicated care when no one is watching and this is the norm in this tiny out of the way bar restaurant. Absolutely fabulous cocktails at prices that are ridiculously cheap based on the quality of ingredients and the...More

Our visit for a Saturday lunch. Locals jammed in and around the bar. So pretend you’re a slice of bread and slide on in the jam ... the service starts with indifference. BUT look at that food coming out of the kitchen. Butter up the...More

Walked in by coincidence for drinks. Excellent service, great ambiance, and EXCELLENT food. The pulpo limeño and saltado peruano is to die for. The chili crab is out of this world (although a little messy), and the carbones de bacalao are amazing. Would definitely recommend...More

Lousy service and cheap overly sweet drink. Overpriced and low quality. The bartender yacking away thinking he is Tom Cruise. I love a good cocktail, I love an average cocktail. Didn’t get either here.

Walked in at 9pm without reservations but the staff made room for us upstairs. We were lucky they did as we saw many others turned away. These folks take great care of their customers, from the homemade bread with local olive oil, to the local...More

Great atmosphere, freindly and helpful staff, very entertaining to sit at bar and watch them at work mixing cocktails. A bit cramped but hey it just adds to the atmosphere. Very good well priced wine and tapas. We did not have a meal here but...More

I rarely write a bad review. But I must say this was not good. The food was average, and expensive. So that makes a poor value. Wine choices were few. The upstairs dining room was nice. But the service was awful. Our waitress pretty much...More

I do not know if they have menu del dia upstairs in fancy restaurant. We ate in the bar and had hamburgers which were delicious. Upstairs is expensive.

On the two occasions we ate here the Restaurant was full, so I would recommend booking a table to ensure your place and time
