The staff are lovely, the decor authentic and the food is nice without being great. My suggestion would be to go for the menu as you get to try a large range of dishes. My one caveat would be the price which is relatively expensive...More

Great food (especially if you're a vegetarian, I'm not - but I still loved it), big helpings, great service, and a nice bit of banter about "where the hottest pepper sauce comes from" with the staff/owners. Highly recommended. They also serve traditional Ethiopian coffee. Cancel...More

For a change from the German fare, this is a perfect way to get some delicious flavors. The owner is very friendly and gave us a complimentary shot of ouzo at the end.

Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to
be an independent town until late into the 19th
century. Though it’s just a short commute away from
the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
