Delicious! Not too pricey, listen to the waiters recommendations and you can't go wrong. The mixed paella as well as the sea bass is worth every penny. For dessert, go for the flambéed strawberries

Great neighborhood restaurant with outdoor and indoor seating. Excellent service and fabulous food displayed artfully at reasonable prices. Excellent appetizer of anchovies and red peppers marinated in olive oil. Delicious mussels and very fresh. Generously poured alcoholic drinks. Must visit!
