First we got different types of tapas and some entertainment. After welcoming we moved to upstairs where we ate excellent food. Starters were some traditionally cheese and seafood. Main food was fish and shrimps. Whole time wine and other refreshments were coming. One waiter did some magic tricks! Thank you very nice!!! :)

We went there for my mother's birthday and it was incredible delicious. But not just the food, but the whole ambiente and the owner were absolute fantastic. I don't think any words can describe the moment, so I can just suggest to visit and experience it. Thumbs up!
