Been there for dinner, piquillos and axoa, good, but nothing exceptional. Service is a bit slow, portions are small. Do not go there if you are really hungry. Globally good, a bit disappointing.

We ended up at La Chistera because we had booked the restaurant next door at 8pm, we arrived 7.55pm and she told us to go too early, always good comes out of bad, delicious food and service at La Chistera, a wee French gem
