We had lunch here once, but we weren`t impressed. The place seemed understaffed (it was almost full and there were only 3 waiters), so we had to wait a very long time to place our order. The tapas were good, but they were all brought at once, which surprised us (other restaurants simply bring them as soon as they are... More

The food was excellent, the staff friendly and attentive. This restaurant is a bit touristy but worth the stop. There is a large variety making it easier to please a group.

We stumbled across this more by chance than by design. We were in the Plaza Merced just on lunch time so had a look down the row of eateries arranged in a very pretty row down one side of the square.

This place was a really nice spot to chill and have an evening meal. This Spinach falafel burger and quesadillas were really nice. Had a big jug of Sangria as the sun set over the ancient amphitheater. Really nice tapas. One of the better places around.

this place is nicely set in a beautiful square. We just had some drinks so cannot say anything about the food. Still, it is a perfect place to have a drink and just do some people watching.
