We fell into this restaurant by accident, we were looking for Italian but it was closed. We had a very enjoyable dinner and we ended up with an extremely large group. The servers handled everything wonderfully and the food was very good. Not a large place but very cozy. and welcoming.

Good food and pretty popular with locals which is always a good sign. The inside is cosy and atmospheric, the service friendly and attentive and the food all good and good value given its central location. Worth the 10 yard detour up a side street off the main street!

Very enjoyable shrimp omellet, fish and simple tomato slices in herbs. The location is near the tourist information in the old city and very relexing. Recommended.

Lovely place with a great atmosphere . The waiter was very patient, friendly and helpful with our very limited Spanish and we had a great selection of tapas. The albondigas and shrimp pancakes were particularly good. They also have some great local wine.
