This restaurant was a pleasant discovery! The location is really good, in a typical little street. The food was tasty and the quantity really satisfying for the low price! We even got a free dessert! And the service was perfect!

Found this little tapas place on the corner of Avli. Same owners but much cheeper prices and great selection to affordable prices. High quality food, great wine and even better service. This will be a new favorite in town

The restaurant is very nice. Service is professional. We ate three starters among which the fried mushrooms, delicious. As main dishes we had liver and smoked pork, both very good. We also had an organic beer and one Alfa for a total of 43€. Recommended
