I was tired of hotel food so I went to the CB and enjoyed a great fish dish, served perfectly with an ice-cold beer. I visited this restaurant years ago and it continues to be a winner!

I was there last month, with 3 friends, and we ordered "paella" y "camarao ao thermidor". All i can say is that every thing was fantastic. The food was wonderful and the waiters were also very kind. The variety of spanish wines was amazing. I recomend this restaurant.
