Excellent seafood. Amazing food and service, top quality food. The only inconvenience is that credit cards are not accepted (cash only)

Went here for dessert after lunch. They didn't have what we ordered so they asked if they could substitute the fruit. Dessert was bitter and small portion. Overpriced for what it was. Also, no internet and no credit cards. Makes it tough to choose over...More

Delicious food...fish and an amazing lamb lasagne! Impeccable service, warm, friendly and expert. After dinner drinks on the house with an invitation to stay and join the small crowd at the bar...a fantastic restaurant!

Simple preparations of very fresh fish -- but not too simple; everything was well and subtly sauced. The waiter was well-versed in the menu and nice. The slow-cooked lamb was excellent, too; it came with sweet potato that had been cooked with the meat and...More

An old, strange, atmosphere. Very good waiter and DELICIOUS food! The "tiraditos de lenguado" FABULOUS!!! I would have asked for three more of those! The "pulpitos"(small octopuses), "chipirones" and seafood "empanaditas" were great too! Desserts: various and delicious: fig tarte with cinnamon ice-cream! or mango...More
