This is a really nice cafe/restaurant.It is located in a small square and it is quite pretty but the extra beauty comes from having live music. The day we visited which was Sunday they were preparing for a live event in the same evening. Inside it looks pretty and it is decorated with taste. They have a large bar.

We visited on a cold wet evening and took the set menu. What great value for money. There were a few tourists, however, the majority were local people in for a family celebration. The 3 course meal with a bottle of wine cost around 40 euro for two. Will return next year. It was certainly busier when the sun cmae... More

Context is a great place to go to enjoy a relaxed evening or a tapas lunch, food is delicious and staff efficient. Every now and then they have poetry reading, live music, book publishing’s... and other very well chosen events. They have a vast variety of good wine and beer, and the prices are reasonable. Great atmosphere and decoration to!

Great restaurant. Food is quickly served, the runners of the restaurant are very friendly and the price-quality-quantity ratio is perfect. The restaurant is located at a quiet place with views on the cathedral. I would recommend this place.

It is a lovely place with a bookstore inside. They offer a wide range of wines and the tapas is excellent. You can find both locals and tourists. Friendly service.

Had a lovely meal of tapas last night in a funky wine bar/cafe set up. I can still remember so well the warm salad and feta cheese dish with honey. So Yum! Servings were ample, and the house red excellent. A different style of bar and you could see the locals certainly favour it. Thank you for the experience.
