This restaurant is mainly for tapas. We had the best Salmorejo there. You do have to many choices as in a normal restaurant. The prices are pretty decent. A nice place to take lunch or dinner.

I love this chain! Their 'tortilla' is my favourite in the city. They offer a range of dishes; croquetas, tortilla, jamón, all of the typical things you would search for in a Spanish cuisine restaurant. The prices are fairly reasonable and the food is tasty!...More

The restaurant and ambiance is very modern and the tapas are tasty and affordable. Try and make a table reservation because the place fills up quickly.

I was here with family (including kids) for lunch. It is a great place for "pinchos", sampling and sharing. The portions are rather small, but most of what we tried was really good. We ordered the tortilla (incredibly moist and tasty), croquetas de jamón, tempura...More
