“Great Evening Start!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

My wife and I wanted to eat before we toured the ruin pubs in this hip neighbourhood. We stopped by around 7 PM and the place was about half full...mostly locals, which is a good sign. The wine was local and very inexpensive. Had a nice glass of pinot. We both started with soups, which were homemade and terrific. Then we had a tapas and curried duck dish. Again, well done!
The atmosphere on the terrace is where you want to be...a cool breeze and many people in the courtyard next door made this feel very friendly.
The servers do speak English and were very available, but not hovering, so this is good. You will enjoy the place. Just go!
