The setting of the restaurant is lovely, hidden away in a garden. The service was very good, attentive, and prompt. The menu was interesting - I had an eggplant goat cheese honey dish that was amazing. The boiled octopus dish with potatoes was a bit of a miss, and the omelet was very good.

The Tuna with a Spanish influence was incredible! I loved the quaint feel under the lit canopy. The recommended wine paired very well with this unique dish.

I can't recommend this place enough, everything was perfect.
We had some seafood tapas to start with and a special each. I had the pork rib Timbal which was spectacular, delicious tender pork accompanied with an apple cream and patacones, with a honey and balsamic sauce.
For desert we shared a chocolate desert with a glass of cava, perfection!
The setting is beautiful, lush plants, fairy lights and candles and the service was great! Not to miss while in Santa Teresa.

We had dinner last night at this beautiful little tapas restaurant in Santa Teresa. It was like being lifted out of a surf town into a charming spot in Spain. The menu was a lovely selection of tapas and mains with several dishes of the day. All were superbly executed with the freshest ingredients - fish, squid, octopus- and creatively presented. Wine to accompany was also Spanish and thoughtfully chosen. Would highly recommend this for a unique dinner experience.

Don't go any where else to eat in Santa Teresa. Not only is the food mouth watering and authentic, the owners Julio and Mauro are 2 of the nicest guys you will meet. Who would have thought you could have authentic Spanish tapas in a lush exotic environment with iguanas and a crazy squirrel living in the tree nearby. Uber Uber Uber. We love to eat here!
