Always a good sign: Asians in the house, quite common according to the (overheated but friendly) waiter. That said, the food is not excellent as you might expect, just good. Price is reasonable, but considered you only have a window of max. 2 hours you'll...More

Most dishes are close to 20 euros. If you want steam rice with it, add 5 euros. I don't normally mind but the food is cantina type. If they charge this sort of money they have to improve.
