We shared a few tapas dishes which were a good size, fairly priced and very tasty. The wine was also very nice. Service was prompt and the dishes were served in the order we requested.

Lousy, slow service, unresponsive staff. After fifteen minutes asking for a bill, I ended up going to the cashier to pay and even then I was told to wait. There's much better just next door in the square.
