Fantastic food, great service, cozy atmosphere. Best tapas place in town, very nice and professional waiters. Good for both, lunch and dinner. Prices are okay, atmosphere very spanish. Try the prawns in sizzling garlic oil and the bull's tail with duck gravy. Amazing!

Wanted to reserve a table which was unsuccessful after several phone dial and online reservation. Lack of interest from the mgmt point of you. This kind of guest relation will hopefully lead to a close sooner or later.

Were were a entourage of 20 persons. We had a nice long table and something like 20 different kind of tapas dishes. Especially shellfish dishes were more than delicious. Really nice staff and atmosphere.
