As per previous reviews the frontage is I inviting but once inside it’s very pleasant with a open kitchen and fresh local ingredients on the counter. We both had fillet steak, mine with foie gras and raisin sauce. Both were tender and cooked to perfection, and the foie gras was mind blowing. Followed up with excellent home made desserts from a wide selection. Friendly chef and staff too. Cannot recommend highly enough. You won’t regret it based on our experience

A unique restaurant that has the appearance of being no more than a cafe but go in and be met by the most unique chef who will serve you up the most delicious of meals that make you go mmmmmmm all the way through. The only disappointment is when the plate is empty but not to worry, order another coarse.

Ate here yesterday with family on their recommendation. From the outside you might not have the highest expectations but the food was absolutely excellent, and the chef a real character. The calamari with peppers and crispy spinach and octopus galician style were particularly gorgeous. Will definitely return. In fact we have one more evening before returning home and already in dispute about whether to try somewhere else..

This is a small restaurant -20 covers max inside, with a few pavement places on a busy road .
The couple running it are different! He fronts house and cooks in his weird chef outfits, a character. She helps out, and rarely smiles. An odd couple.
We ate two nights. The first night both my menu choices were "off" which is not good when the choices are quite limited to begin with. The alternates were however just excellent - i had red gambas, my wife the boquerones. We both enjoyed the bacalao con koko as a main , close to being sensational as a plate of fine food. His GinTonic cake to finish was uniquely good too.
With a €12 bottle of wine, total was €74 for two. A bit more than we usually spend but so worth it that we booked again for 2 nights later.

The second visit was good too. This time i got my wish for Muscles (the area is famous for them) and red tuna. Perfect, both. My wife had montadito of sardines, not so good and served on toated ciabatta that was hard to cut and chew. Her cod cheeks were in the identical sauce to the previous meal, disappointing. With a strawberry and cjoc sauce to finish, and a local red wine bottle at €14 the bill this time was €59.

Great food mostly. He is worth meeting. His wife needs to cheer up!
Deserves the listing as no.3 on TA. Easy to see why it is so popular.
