I have had the great opportunity to speak to the owner/chef. He does NOT use any lactose in his cooking. He enjoys taking to his clients and he cares. The picture on the left is NOT Tabarka.

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.
