There is nothing bad to be said about the food which tasted well and was presented nicely - this is certainly a good place for people who like seafood. The service was average and the interior is cosy. What is disappointing is that the dishes...More

Went there with friends, the place came highly recommended and we got a 50% discount because of a local food festival. Excellent food, the Pulpo a la Gallega was incredibly tender. Paella was very good. Service was ok but not special. One of the more...More
