(The restaurant is located at the rear far away position when... More

We arranged to meet up with friends we hadn't seen for over 22 years and wanted somewhere we could talk without being frowned at. The tapas bar suited us perfectly. Initally the men ordered beers while we had coffee/tea. Later I wanted to join them drinking but not on an empty stomach. The tapas I ordered for all of us... More
