Despite no confirmed reservation they graciously got us in when they opened, stroke of 8. The place filled up fast and we soon learned why. We tried 5 items, the most unusual of which were the marinated sardines (they won't fill you up), mussels in...More

Great restaurant for dinner or lunch with friends and couples. Fantastic spanish tapas with a twist that makes the diffence! Different and good selection of wines too! Great atmosphere and private dining area for groups! Will go back!

This gem was a block from our Air BnB and couldn't have been happier with the service or food. There are a few vegetarian options but not many, however the options that are available are great. The wine selection is vast and you can find...More

You could be put off by the unprepossessing exterior outside street look - don’t be. We had just the best meal. Superb tapas, especially the battered crispy cod, beautifully presented - not to mention beef and finally desserts. Chocolate cake is to die for! Amazing...More

Tasty beef tartar, calamares, the awesomest bull's tail and delicious meat. Tuna tartar is ok. Half of the portion of the starters to share is enough. On the picture are full portions.

Nice and calm place. We went to lunch there at 16.00 and we were greeted very nicely. Very vast menu with fair prices. We spent less than 40€ for 2 people eating excellent fish.

Looked lovely and would have been even better if the staff could have bothered to serve. Turned us away over and hour before stated closing. Shame.

We had a steak tartare appetizer which was good. Followed by a "Paela" main course that was supposed to contain barbecued pork and grilled artichokes. Well, perhaps they ran out of pork and artichokes, because in total there were about 4 oz. of pork and...More

The street doesn't look all that promising, but this is a great place to eat! We had the Russian salad, tuna tataki, bread with oil/tomato and pork looks, along with some good value cava. It's not exactly cheap but the food tastes lovely, and 2/3...More
