I cannot comment on the food as we didn't end up eating here. The reason being is that the drinks were very overpriced and the state of the toilets made us leave. I have travelled most the world (Africa, Asia etc) and experienced cockroaches but the roach in the ladies toilets was the biggest I have ever seen. We promptly left. Despite our experience the place seemed very popular and was full.

It is a restaurant disguised as a tapas bar; a real tapas bar has your order ready in a few minutes, we had to wait for half an hour for four meatballs which set us back 8 euros, you could get four tapas for this money in a Spanish bar!
Waiters kept asking every 5 minutes if we would like another beer, obnoxious fat owner smoking inside, no locals to be found as it is outrageously expensive.
They bring an expensive couvert with shrimp and smoked ham to the table....do not fall for this trick, just refuse it.
When the owner asked us if we wanted another beer we said yes.....but not here!

We went with a group of portuguese friends for a beer and tapas and they refused to give us a table event thought there was more than one free. I can understand a restaurant keeps tables for meals but they were really rude and repeatedly unpolite. There were only tourists there… locals would just never repeat the experience!

Delicious seafood, very nice tapas, fresh and tasty. Really nice sangria with fresh fruits and spices. The location is also very beautiful and nice to sit outside. Don't expect too much friendlyness of the waitress though.
