I've been to this restaurant many times and always come away completely satisfied. The staff is very friendly and if your Spanish is not good they are able to help. Menu is in English or Spanish and prices are very reasonable.

Rather limited menu. Thai noodles were very different from traditional Thai food. Seemed healthy and it was tasty. Ordered it medium hot but did not find it to be very spicy warm. Wine was so-so. Creme brûlée was very odd. Kitchen closes at 8 so...More

A short walk from the central square/cathedral is this quaint little restaurant with limited seating but excellent food. The hummus plate is delicious and big enough to share - the hummus is accompanied with toasted bread and a big portion of salad. The Thai noodle...More
