After receiving good recommendations from friends about the restaurant I thought we'd give it a try for a special Valentine's Night dinner with my wife. The menu sounded good value at €22 per head for 3 courses and the menu looked good.
Booking was easy via email with no deposit required. On arriving after a few minutes we were greeted by a chap at reception and taken to our table. We were given a complimentary glass of cava whilst we browsed the menu.
First impressions were the restaurant was small and intimate with four tables set with a Valentine theme in what I would call the atrium or small internal 'courtyard'. The decor is contemporary and as it was Valentine's night there was a red carnation at each place setting and glass hearts in the middle. There was a small ante room off the courtyard with tables set and occupied but if you book I would suggest you make sure you avoid this. It's a bit out of the way and near the only toilet so you get "passing trade" so to speak.
We ordered Devilled Chicken Livers and Deep Fried Camembert as a starter, which was more than satisfactory and Beef Stroganoff with Rice and Goats Cheese and Onion Tart as main courses. The Stroganoff was creamy and tasty and my wife couldn't eat her main as it was a good portion and quite a 'heavy' dish. For sweet we both had Icky Sticky Pudding with more than enough caramel sauce. Lovely but very filling. The wine with the meal was very good and reasonably priced at €19.95 for a Reserva.
Overall the evening was pleasant and all the tables were filled with a total of 14 diners. I would say that it doesn't really have the feel of a restaurant and could lack atmosphere if all the tables weren't taken. This doesn't detract from the fact the food was very good, the service good (a little slow with the wine list, which we had to ask for) and overall a good evening and good value. We will return but maybe next time in the summer to try the outside dining.
