Went for dinner here yesterday. The food was barely ok but sharing the table with cockroaches left a lot to be desired. They also tried to charge for bread that we never had. There are better places than this to eat.

We were slightly nervous coming here due to memories of uncooked potatoes many years ago. Happy to say we had a perfectly cooked paella. The sardines cooked on skewers on a hot fire are also highly recommended.
