Popped in here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, great little find with a really great relaxed atmosphere, ordered mixed veggie tapas and was pleasantly surprised how tasty and different each dish was, would definitely come back.

We tried most of the bars in Plaza de la Merced and this was one that we had breakfast in as well. Good spanish breakfast with reasonable service.
