“A must!!!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We ate here twice on our 5 night trip, and on both occasions, the food was perfect! The restaurant is set up quite romantically, although I don't think it's seen as that by the locals. It is a beautiful place to relax with some food and a glass of wine. The food is really amazing, a good variety, all delicately cooked! The staff are very attentive, and want to make sure you have all that you need without getting in the way. For what you are eating you would pay double/triple what you will actually pay! You really must sample!

“Pretty average”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

After reading other reviews I thought this was going to be something special, the food was nicely presented but definitely average, not bad but not wow tasting . To me this was a very touristy and busy establishment which is fine if you're after a place to pop in for quick meal but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it, prices are OK and service good. I was disappointed to witness a waiter wiping the rim of a glass with their hand to remove marks..

“Good food but not sure about the value”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went late one night about an hour before close. They said the kitchen was only open for another 15 minutes. So we ordered the Meat Tapas collection, and it was excellent. However, we asked if it would be filling enough for 2 people, and they said it would be, but it really wasn't. We got our dinner before we got our drinks (the Pina Colada was great!) which was also some what odd. I thought it was a bit overpriced for what we received, but I can't complain about the food. Perhaps the service was a little off that night or something, but the food was great.

“Good but nothing special”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

It's a cozy restaurant/cafe with above average food and with only a little bit of above-average service. We tried soups, the duck (per a recommendation from this site), and some salads. The wine selection was so-so (didn't get the best matching wine). The price-quality ratio was, overall, good though (but we liked the near-by Menza more).

“Two Brothers”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

They advertise themselves as a tapas restaurant, but don't be fooled. They are so much more. Everything is delicious here and the atmosphere whether sitting outdoors in the warm months or indoors, is superb.
