Cute place. In an intimate ally of barrio alto. The food and service were great! Downside - on the pricy side for small tapas plates.

Dont go here. Salami tapas is 8 euros, service is nonexistent and rude. You can go to local market and buy the same tapas with better service

I was lucky enough to have a large lump of plastic in my burger. Worse was the way the staff handled the situation demanding I paid for the dish. Would never return and advise to avoid. Very over priced also. Worst meal and service I've had in 43 years.

Tourist trap at its best. .. We came across this very cute restaurant which at the time looked like it had potential. We ordered green peppers =9€ patatas bravas ( which turned out to be about 10 fried pieces of potato chopped into cubes with a mix of mayo and ketchup sauce) =6,50€ and a sausage cut into 3 pieces...

Went there last Saturday at around 9pm, it was very busy outside lots of people sitting and eating on the steps which didnt really appeal to me, however once we got to the door the Lady taking the reservations offered us a table outside or inside. Service was friendly and the music was great! After asking our waiter we ordered... More

I rarely feel irritated enough by a place to remember to leave a bad review but this place was ridiculous on so many levels. The seating on the streets was absolutely packed and it looked like a good atmosphere so we thought we'd give it a go. The front of house woman made ZERO effort to welcome us or suggest... More
