The waiter was friendly and we had a couple of drinks and chose three tapas dishes. The calamari in squid ink batter was excellent, however the hummus was bland and lacked seasoning. Overall we liked the location and service.

The starters were very tasty, especially the goat cheese / artichoke soup. According to the menu, the Gazpacho should've contained serrano ham, but the tiny ham scrapings that were laying on the side of the plate disappeared in the tasty tomato soup, it literally can't be more than 3 grams of ham that they put in the gazpacho.

Nice break for hot shopping day. Place is clean, with spacious patio. Surrounded by modern buildings. At the time of the visit construction work was providing some additional noise and dust to patio.

Extremely long waiting time. 1h and still not even gotten the starter. Drinks were not asked to be refilled and they forgot to give the bread. I came here 3 years ago and was very satisfied. Now I'm hungry and irritated why on a empty Wednesday I have to wait more than 1h to get the starter. Starter was OK.... More

We just sat outside when we visited this place, we had some drinks and also som calamaris to eat. But when we went inside to use the toilets I saw how nice and modern and fresh it looked. Good service. Nice place to sit outside too, for a couple of hours.

Not quite sure why this place seems to be empty most times. Great selection of tapas, good wine, wonderful service. This place needs a lot more praise!
