Great staff and good food. The Paella is one of the best we had so far and in a very fair price. Prawn Pil Pil is great but portion a little small for our hungry group. Aubergine with grilled goat cheese and tomato jam balances very well.. Excellent!

Popped into this place one evening for dinner. It's really nice inside. Has quite a quirky feel to it.
Was served by a fantastic guy called Alberto & I have to say he really made or visit to it. He was funny but also very polite.
We are both vegan & he was able to recommend some dishes. This place is not a vegan restaurant but it's the best vegan food we are on the whole trip.
We also got a good glass of wine.
It was so good we came back the following day for lunch.
If there is one negative it would be the blonde lady who also works behind the counter. I found her to be unfriendly & quite abrupt. There was no pleasantries at all from her in the slightest.
All in all I would recommend this place & highly recommend Alberto & his fantastic customer relations.

Awesome evening! Very tasty tapas, the paella was also very good and largely served. A very good surprise. Fantastic welcome from Alberto who has been helping us through the menu.
