The reviews sounded good, the pictures looked good, so I made a reservation and my wife and I were looking forward to dinner out - sadly it was not to be. It's a tight, claustrophobic place and, when we arrived, there were a few occupied tables but the place was, by no means, full. We immediately received a basket of bread, some olives, cheese and roasted peppers. That, alas, was all we ever managed to get. After 20 minutes my wife grabbed the waiter on one of his passes by and confirmed that the writing on the board behind the bar was, in fact, the menu - it would have been nice to have been told this when we had entered. I asked for the wine list which, such as it was, arrived. After another 15 minutes I'd had enough - I grabbed the waiter's arm as he passed by - this seemed to be the only way to ever be noticed in the place and asked for the bill. Suddenly, there were 2 people wanting to take my order and I had to be quite insistent that it was, in fact, only the bill that I wanted. We paid the (quite reasonable) 3 euros 80 for what we'd had (the cheese we'd not touched and was not, thankfully, included on the bill) and left to go to one of any number of nearby places who understood better the concept of a restaurant being a place where people go to exchange money for food.
