We went to this restaurant twice in the last week. Fish was lovely, as were desserts and wine. Would have liked more veg with the fish, but seemed to be the same everywhere in the region. Efficient and friendly staff. Not cheap but excellent quality

Our reservation was for 8:00. This was unusual as most fine-dining Spanish restaurants won't take one before 9:00 or 9:30.
