Fun décor is also partly an original art-work in its own right. Friendly and prompt service. Good choice of excellent-quality 'tapas-type' dishes and good wines. Generous portions. Very small, so book ahead or arrive early.

It was average. The service was good, the room tiny, and most items on the menu tasted like they were pre prepared and just heated in a toaster oven. The octopus dish I had was straight out of a can.
