The tapas here are great, but really appetizer sized portions (escept for the premium meat tapas). The main entrées (Hauptgerichten) are wonderful--especially the grilled calamari, which are whole, not sliced into rings. Come with nicely done pommes frites and a light salad. Beer on tap, of course, and wines we didn't look at. Service is excellent and friendly. A lively place, with a few medium-sized rooms, so a little loud with conversations.

Had lunch here one afternoon. Excellent Tapas, and my husband got a lunch special that included spiced beef, potatoes and a salad for a very reasonable price. I got the lamb medallions with gaucamole, potatoes with a sour cream type dip, and a cheese and spinach baked dip. All of the food was excellent, and the sangria with cava was strong and delicious. Great place for a lazy meal with friends.

The place is cozy, choice of the tapas is rich. They also serve tasty business lunches - big portions for reasonable price.

Been there for a team meeting with a team. Nice and cozy atmosphere but loud when crowded.

The tapas were good and they had an extensive selection of tapas.

Nothing special though.

We were staying nearby and ate here three times. The food is uniformly good--try the fresh figs in fennel cream sauce--and the tables on the square are a great place to enjoy the local scene. At peak hours servers are overburdened, though, so don't be in a hurry.
