Loved the ambiance of this lovely restaurant located adjacent to a city park. Service was timely and food delicious. Great value for extensive menu. Enjoyed the grilled asparagus and grilled cod. All perfectly cooked and served. May be our "go to" place in the future.

The food was good, plenty of options to pick from and good price points. The staff could use a make over. Not only were they rude but had lots of attitude when we asked for a second helping of bread. All the starters we shared were great and the main course as well. I would probably return but would mention... More

There were a lot of business people eating here. The starters which we shared were very good, including the classic huevos rotos. The pulpo (octopus) which I had was excellent. The wine was very drinkable. The staff were friendly & helpful.

Looks so nice and the food is good. But the staff are rude and try to pack diners downstairs (in the basement!) even when the warmly lit restaurant that drew you in is mostly empty. Quite a bit of "we don't like tourists" snobbery I'm afraid.

I hate eating out on weekends. There, I said it. Generally service is rushed or horrible, food not properly prepared. So I really enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday evening. Service was exceptional, really. Not too fast or slow, not cloying, but look up for something and a server wast there! Intervals between courses was perfect, not rushed, not slow.... More

This place looks great from the outside and the food to be fair is average and relatively inexpensive. One big thing for me is friendly staff I like being well treated when I spend my hard earned cash! So all in all no chance I will be back!!!

Found this place when working round the corner. Good food not too expensive, has a range of starter/main price structures. Recommended.
