A busy little place in the center of Dublin was the perfect place for a brief break, snack and glass (or three) of a nice Spanish wine. We had some lovely Spanish cheese. The patatas were a little disappointing.

This place rocked. Awesome vibe. Couldn't have been better. Well, I suppose the tables were a little small. But it didn't bother us. That's what happens when lots of people want to visit a cool place :)
