We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with traditional Spanish food and friendly professional service. If you are in town make sure you visit for a slice of Spain even on the coldest winter day. The wine was superb - we had white Rioja .

What can i say. we are a retired couple who enjoy eating out and visiting nice places and are fortunate to do so. Lovely establishment. Busy the evening we were there but they did try and deal with the demands very well. Plenty to drink and superb conversation. worth the visit.
