This place serves tapas which are nice enough but not outstanding. There is a small area on the street and then a large, barn area at the back which is nice on a warm evening. The food was average, the service was excellent.

Most of the tapas are seafood. The clams and mussels are steamed and should not have gluten, nor should the chorizo. Much of the seafood, however, may very well have gluten. You can ask what items are cooked in flour... More
