We enjoyed tapas and drinks (regular Spanish fare) but what made this place special was the friendly staff! We hung out as out kids played card games, never rushed! Gladly return.

Nice restaurant with very friendly staff offering an interesting selection of tapas. In fact you can sample any of the main courses on the menu as a tapa for 2 euros. What a good idea. Seemed very popular with the locals as well.
