I had a list of GF restaurants and we were walking along, looking for one on my list. The hostess asked us to eat there and I told her I was looking for one with GF food. She said they did, spoke good English, so we ate here! Tapas were good, GF choices, a good bathroom, spoke English, and took... More

One of very many spots on Plaza Merced. It was the only place I tried that was recommended by our host and glad we picked this one. We went twice on our last of six days and wished we had tried it before. Outdoor under umbrellas with nice wait staff. Wife got crepes and tapas and I tried their pasta... More

Stopped here for breakfast and it was cheap and tasty with plenty of options. The decor is quirky and fun with seating indoors and outside where you can people watch.

This restaurant was a great surprise.The employer were very friendly . The food was very tasty . The juices are great. With fantastic Mojitos. The restaurant is a cozy and friendly space. Located in a central square in a very characteristic environment.

I was very surprised to see such cheap prices for breakfast - and even more surprised that the food tasted so good ! Cafe con leche, croissant, chocolate & banana crepe - everything was delicious. And served on a very pretty terrasse on Plaza de la Merced. The service was great as well. Definitely recommend !

We visited a few times during our week's stay as we were staying on Plaza de la Merced. The mid-afternoon tapas were excellent and it was great to sit outside in the sunshine. However, the breakfast was disappointing in comparison to other breakfasts we enjoyed in local bars and cafes. The food was good quality and the service was good... More

Went for two for one cocktails and clearly checked the conditions. Cocktails were fairly poor and not well presented for the money. When the bill came we were charged full price. The two cocktails had to be the same to get the deal. What a con! Thank goodness we didn't go here for food.

Had a fantastic lunch here today. We had a couple of really tasty sandwiches and drinks. Service was great from the woman with tattoos round her neck :) also the woman who brought our drinks. Both were very friendly and smiley. We will be going back before we leave. Loved the children's swing that I sat on as my chair!!!!... More
