The restaurant is a small and cozy place which is very inviting. The service when I arrived was good, and although the menu card can be somewhat difficult, the waitress was nice and helped with a good selection of tapas and wine.

The food arrived quite (suspiciously) fast, in less than 5 minutes. Best stuff first - the marinated pork neck was pretty good, tasty and juicy. The king shrimps were a bit dull, although nothing criminal. The potatoes was well-cooked and the sauce was tasty, but the skin was dry. The bread was a real let down - white, industrial baquettes of the kind you can squish back into dough (yes, the ones you buy frozen in the supermarket). That really doesn't go well with tapas.
Price-wise, it is not bad, but overall it loses to many other restaurants in Stavanger on value-for-money. The glass of wine was standard price in Norway (120) and quite good.

The service, which started out pretty good, disappear immediately after serving the food. I was out of wine and would have ordered another glass, I was out of glass and really just wanted something more to drink, and finally I gave up - got up and paid, as I had finished the meal.

Really annoying, as I was looking forward to trying some Tapas in Stavanger. I won't be returning.
