We started with a dozen of very fresh oysters. Delicious! My friend ate a steak with pepper and we shared mussels with withe wine and garlic. Everything was delicious. It is not a very famous street but it is a good place to have a chic meal not so expensive

Closer to home the reviews have been equally reliable, so we went to La Cava Catalana in Xalapa, Veracruz, with high expectations and were not at all disappointed.

I go to this restaurant at least once or twice a month with my parents and my brother we love it we love the food we love the attention the service, the place. Ask for the recommendations of the Day because they are always renewing and adding new delicious and original dishes to their main offer. 10/10.
