We had scallops and mixed "croqetas" for starter. Then sirloin and duck for mains. The food was very nice; tasty and tender. The service as well was very good; attentive, friendly, but not intrusive. We'll come back to this place!

Had a terrific meal in here. Beware of the portion sizes as both starters and mains were all on the large size.
