Impeccable, knowledgeable service. A handsome dining room. A delightful menu that invites sharing – creative starters and small plates and a good selection of mains and paellas to meet a range of dining preferences. The beer and wine list is deservedly well regarded, though we...More

This restaurant is located in our hometown. It's a local favorite amongst our friends. Calamari is delicious and drinks are always strong and delightful.
