We have now spent our last three birthdays here as we have found it to be very special. True we only visit at lunchtimes which is our preference, but each time we have been given a table with a fabulous view, we have received excellent service from the waiters/waitresses and have always found the food to be of the highest...

On the night my boyfriend proposed he contacted the restaurant to ask them before hand if we could be seated with a beautiful view as he planned to ask me to marry me. He was so excited he couldn't wait until the end of the meal and so asked me at the beginning. I was delighted... But then the restaurant... More

Authentic tapas served at the bar, extensive a la carte menu in the restaurant. Excellant wine list .Expensive by Spanish standards. Great suckling pig and milk-fed lamb. Chateaubriand (for 2 ) excellant. The Alaskan crab mousse a fantastic starter. ( 1 enough for 2) Fantastic romantic setting. Dine on the terrace by candlelight.
