The restaurant is very nice and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. Tapas (we picked 4 of them) were great and ingredients were very fresh and tasty. The seafood paella instead was not equally good: clams still have sand and the rice was somehow burnt. It was a pity because shrimps were very good.

Very friendly and helpful service. An extensive menu with good choice and as always we ordered too much but enjoyed every mouthful! Despite our rather late departure there was no pressure to leave and we thus had a very pleasant and relaxed evening

We've been several times and never disappointed. Each and everyone of the small plates was delicious. (My minor comment to chef might be to not serve the steak dish last.) Look forward to returning.
