Small, traditional bar with only 4-5 simple dishes on their menu and excellent red, white and rose wine directly from the barrel. Nothing fancy, only the joy of simple, well prepared, home-made style food, wine, beer and loud, joyful conversation. The bar is very popular...More

2.9-ish euros for a little plate of delicious little freshly fried fish. Nice guy and nice locals also sitting in the area. We went around 10:30am so it was a really chilled atmosphere. We tasted the vermouth too which was lovely.

I read about this place in a Rick Steves guide book and immediately tracked it down. Was very busy when I got there-- nowhere to sit. However, I have vivid memories of chowing down on whole fried sardines while standing on a cobblestone street at...More

This is a small local bar, only about 5 or 6 tables- I would take a 14 year old there. It is just tapas and cold beer and wine. Delicious deep fried fish ! Usually frequented by locals and walking groups.
