“Nice people, nice atmosphere, and good food!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We liked this place a lot. One of the owners explained to us that they want to create an atmosphere similar to sitting in a friends family room while listening to good music and talking with friends – and they do a pretty good job of doing that! It was funny in that at one time during our visit, the noise level got a little loud and he very politely called everyone’s attention and asked that we lower the decibels. I thought that was great! The lower level of chatter really made the experience much nicer.
The food is all tapas and we shared five between the two of us, along with a bottle of wine. Our favorites were the spicy potatoes, …. The wine was very good and not expensive. We spent about 50 Euros for dinner, dissert and wine. A good deal and a very pleasant evening.

“Great food, host and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Have just got back from eating at aQistoi and haven't got a negative word to say.
Tasty homemade food. We tried 4 empanadas which were all great. Any with cheese in them were especially good.
Me and my fiancée also shared a salad which I would highly recommend. Fresh, loads of flavour and beautifully presented.
We then shared goats cheese, honey and nut baguette which was a very generous portion. My fiancée said she was full but it was too good to leave so cleaned her plate.

The best bit about it was the host and atmosphere though. Very friendly and he made you feel like a friend before you left. I sometimes find some hosts a bit too much but the lovely man at aQistoi was a gentleman.

Great value for money as well. Can't put a price on a friendly atmosphere though.
