All tables outdoors, people at tables before opening time, but fair number of tables and turnover so no worries about waiting. Not a tapas bar, seating at tables, paper tablecloth, meals served on normal white dinner-ware. Waiters helpful, some English spoken, enough to get what...More

A great place for seafood for very reasonable prices. The little square is a bit hard to find, it is therefore reasonably quite and it has a great location in the sun. We very much liked the caracoles (small snails) and the chocos (sepia).
