Don’t be fooled by appearances. This is a great small tapas restaurant that is frequented by locals. Great Quality dishes. I was there with a small group from work and the food was delicious.

Great selection of tapas, great presentation, very tasty. Small place, but excellent service. Good wine list. Little expensive for the amount of food. Worth a try!

I don't recall what night we went (probably Friday or Saturday); there was live music but it wasn't so loud that you had to shout. You sit really close to the next table so you have to like your neighbours :)
