Horrible.How difficult can it be to make sure you take the pizza on time out of the oven. The salmon tasted like paper and the presentation on the plate was non-existing. One can expect a lot more for 68€.

The paella here is terrible and over priced. The vegetables in the salad were from a can. They brought hard bread that we assumed was complimentary, and then charged us 1.50 EUR per person. If you decide to eat here despite these warnings, I hope you...More

Do not go here. Service is really bad and food is not good. We ate lunch here, grilled salmon 13€+1,50€ for bread that we didn't even order. Dish was really poor, frozen fish with precooked potatos and some bag vegetables. Never again.

The title says bad taste, that may not be fair for bad taste... This was an appalling dining experience. We ordered the lamb sholder to share. The plate was greasy and so glossy that we didn't need the flash on our camera to take ones...More

We went in fairly early for Spain (7.30) and the place had only 3 tables occupied. Took 2 minutes to place a drink order and another minute for the bread that we hadn't asked for to arrive! 15 minutes later we placed our food order....More
