Loved the ambiance of this lovely restaurant located adjacent to a city park. Service was timely and food delicious. Great value for extensive menu. Enjoyed the grilled asparagus and grilled cod. All perfectly cooked and served. May be our "go to" place in the future.

There were a lot of business people eating here. The starters which we shared were very good, including the classic huevos rotos. The pulpo (octopus) which I had was excellent. The wine was very drinkable. The staff were friendly & helpful.

I hate eating out on weekends. There, I said it. Generally service is rushed or horrible, food not properly prepared. So I really enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday evening. Service was exceptional, really. Not too fast or slow, not cloying, but look up for...More
