Outside eating. Staff was attentive. We shared the mussels and shrimp it was really tasty. We also had the paella which was great, very flavorful with nice seasoning. The patio is colorful and my husband was going nuts over the HUGE, fruitful avocado trees.

I'm not sure. But the tapas meal (10 or 12 dishes) is all of 180 pesos, and wine 50 or less. Pay with pesos, better for all. Best value in town.
