While I didn't like the peppers everything else was fabulous and when they saw that I had barely touched them, enquiries were made, my opinion noted and they were removed from our bill. Very nicely... More

Shared tapas and sangria here with a friend during a movie screening for the Kerry Film Festival and we had a super evening. An old converted church with beautiful architecture, and tall stained glass windows alongside splashes of Spanish art on the wall, all set off by candles flickering on the tables provide a cosy romantic setting hidden away in...
