Varied seafood options well prepared. Octopus and Calamari stand out. Fish is very fresh; jamon of very good quality, and the wine list is varied and reasonably priced. Attached Wine Store provides options for vinophiles.

A large, formal and fairly expensive fish restaurant. Some of the food looked amazing - although sadly I managed to order the hake which came lightly battered with thin strips of crisps and a very nice (but small) pile of red peppers. It looked more...More
