This is a special place, with the emphasis on several small plates (Rations). The location is excellent and the owner, Oscar, is really helpful, engaging and gregarious. If in Competa, do not miss out in visiting this roof top restaurant

Had a wait for food which was OK but for the prices and what you got a tad expensive. Charged for everything which in other restaurant s in the area they were complementary. Food was flavoursome but not enough for the price.

The staff here were lovely and helpful. The food was great too. We had lovely tapas and drinks at a very reasonable price. It's just off the main plaza and is in a lovely setting. We would definitely go back!
