A big choice from the standard tapas menu is supplemented by a weekly "specials" list, which we found well worth trying. Every thing we tried (in three visits in a week!) was good with some things outstanding e.g mushrooms with prawns; ravioli with smoked tomato...and Serrano ham; chicken skewer; king prawn skewer; porcini ravioli with truffle sauce. The staff were welcoming and helpful and with the well frequented small restaurant space generated a very pleasant atmosphere. The house white wine was fine. We shared a sweet on two occasions, both very good. It was essential to book at least a day in advance, although the busy period seemed to be very early (7 pm - 9 pm) compared to mainland Spain. (Best wishes to the owners and staff during the difficult period ahead)More

We arrived without a reservation, but were warmly welcomed nonetheless. The atmosphere was warm and cosy with room to breath (some restaurants can be so tightly packed!) Even the choice of background music was perfect! As for the food - well this was obviously prepared...with a lot of love and care. Each dish arriving when ready - rather than everything arriving at once! Two of the highlights were the Thai chicken curry and the Wild boar with mashed potato, both were absolutely delicious. Customers were booking their next visit as they left - you can have no better recommendation than that!More

Small restaurant with quality food and service. Nice experience. We had onion soup, followed by fillet steak and Tuna steak. Finished with a reasonable red wine. Friendly and well worth a visit. Must book early to avoid disappointment.

An authentic tapas within a small, chilled environment. A good selection of dishes that are served as they are cooked, so don't expect a quick experience - more of a leisurely one, giving you the opportunity to enjoy all the different flavours and spices. The...Server was very helpful too, suggesting number of tapas that would be suitable for our party and talking us through some of more unusual dishes. They catered well for particular dietry needs (one of our party was gluten-free) and the wine was pretty good too! Overall - our best meal of the holiday - and excellent value too. Would suggest booking in advance as a few people were turned away on the night we ate here - it was busy!More

This restaurant was recommended to me and I’m so pleased that it was. It was so good that we visited twice whilst on holiday. So many choices that it was hard to decide but the food we chose in the end was fantastic. The wine...was lovely too and everything was served by helpful and friendly staff. Do book though as it’s only small and it gets very busy. . They have a large regular menu and a weekly special menu too. Closed ThursdayMore

This is a favourite place of ours, great food reasonably priced quite small tapas bistro which we love. Might be worth booking on a weekend! Don't go there expecting to be served quickly, as sometimes it is busy, just drink your wine, converse and take...your time to relax, the food is gorgeous and changes weekly. Promise you won't be disappointed.More
