Great place to go in a group. 6 of us sat outside whilst our friendly and attentive waitress plied us with a with a wide variety of delicious tapas. In particular the chicken wings, pigs cheeks, beef, lamb tagine and octopus were outstanding. All washed down with copious amounts of local wine. We have already booked our return
