115 Euros for 4 adults, 1 kid for dinner, dessert and a couple drinks. Food was very good. Place was almost empty but the atmosphere was still quite pleasant. A good alternative for us to the dinner offerings at nearby Cabra Castle.

Went here the 18th for a family meal. Once again everything from the fabulous cuisine through to the service was brilliant. 3 Steaks, 1 Sea Bass and 1 Cantonese style Chicken all to perfection. Finished off with a round of Eaton Mess for all. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
