Excellent value and excellent food. Tapas portions are generous and everything was delicious. More than enough food for 2 adults and 2 kids plus a round of drinks for €50

This was an excellent choice for some really basic tapas standards of chicken, meatballs, squid and patatas bravas. Simple unpretentious food in a relaxing environment- you don't always have to fill up or eat arts of work-reassuringly good.
