“One of the best restaurant I had in life!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

I travelled around the world a lot and it is very rare that I come across a restaurant so memorable! Excellent service and advice from the manager; insanely delicious food, very creative way of cooking them as well. The pork cheek is a must have I was that sad to finish the last bite. Would recommend it 200% to anyone!

“Truly a pearl”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Just followed the recommendations by the extremely kind owner - foodwise - and had an excellent three course dinner for two with five kinds of innovative and nicely arranged tapas, grilled squid, a bottle of wine, wonderful cake and coffee for under 60,- €. Staff also very friendly. Make sure to make a reservation, particularly on weekends.

“Ticks every box”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We found the staff welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. The food bordered on fine dining quality and had we not run out of time we would've visited the next day. This cosy atmosphere-filled restaurant is well deserving of it's place @ #2 in the Tripadvisor ranks. If you don't eat here, you'll definitely miss out.
