“Slow service equals quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Some people criticise slow service but we like it as it gives us time to digest one course before starting the next. No stuffing! Here the service was slow but the attention we received and the quality were top notch. We booked here on a recommendation from a restaurant that was closed because it was Sunday. We were so glad we went here. Our starter was a lobster dish which tasted good and was well presented. My wife chose hake rolled around seafood for her main course and pronounced it excellent. I had recently barbecued sea bass in the south of Spain so I tried it here. It was simply the large piece of sea bass you could imagine with a delicate sauce. What an excellent choice. I cannot remember what our desserts were but they were very good. The three course meal with a bottle of white wine was 106.00 euros. It was excellent value. We talked about this meal for quite some time afterwards!
