My girlfriend and I really loved this place. We had the menu and a few extras for quite a reasonable price, served with a smile and humour. While you're here, be sure to try the delicious cherry liquor :)

We stumbled on this place whilst looking for a bar. Had an excellent tapas meal, the codfish was especially good and the cherry liqueur in chocolate was lovely. Not expensive and good fun
