The plaza is small, full of chairs from the cafes and restaurants. The tower or monument (?) in the middle of the plaza is interesting. The sculpture of the nude man and woman is kind of weird. It's not worth visiting this place except you...More

Have never had Tapas before and decided to give it a go. I had thought it was small portions so I was pleased that I only ordered 2 as they were quite large. The Iberian ham was wonderful, service great. Fantastic dessert.
