The food was ok. Nothing special but not bad either. Well priced with the early bird special. A 3.5 I would say.

Visited this restaurant again, lovely wine and excellent tapas. Keep doing what you're doing! This place fills up quick and food is prepared to order so expect a little wait for food, it just gives time to enjoy the wine and atmosphere !!
