This place serves the most amazing food. Be prepared to wait as this place is very busy. The food is worth the wait. I would get there a bit earlier in order to find somewhere to sit etc.

Really good and tasty selection. The large ribeye was delicious & large enough to serve a table of 8.

We went here early on Friday evening, around 8:30pm. It started to fill with locals shortly after we arrived, generally a good sign. The service was wonderful - one of the waitresses helped us through the menu as we don't speak Spanish well - this...More

My wife and I shared every dish and enjoyed them all. The food was excellent especially their rice with mushroom and their potato truffle croquette. The red tuna tataki was also very tasty and highly recommended, as was their salmorejo. The Vina Gravonia 2005 white...More
