After endless searching and much scepticism my boyfriend and I decided to settle with Alma Cheli for dinner, and what a great choice that was! Although the kitchen doesn’t open until 8pm (which was a shock to us gringos) and the menu doesn’t read as...More

Alma Cheli is all about well prepared rustic favorites from Spain. Those who insist solely on hip interior design might be sorely disappointed. Once Inside, you could say that the relatively small space for a few tables is within breathing distance from the bar, but...More

Its a small and cozy place with lots of vines and great food. Super nice staff, everything came at the same time and could be shared. Would go again without doubt.

What got our attention was the outside dining and crowd. It appears to have a strong local following so we ventured inside. Small, yet well decorated, the restaurant was clean and we were quickly welcomed and seated. Our food (prawns and meatballs) was quite tasty...More

At first sight the interior didn't seem very "noble" and you wonder if you stay or go, but don't rely on first impressions. :-) We had some problems in other restaurants with english menu, but here, it is not a problem and if you don't...More
