We had delicious, amazing, tasty food and our waiter was wonderful. I have some food allergies and he took the time to mark the items on the menu that I could eat. It was wonderful to have such an understanding and kind waiter.

Even though my husband and I waited for two hours while having a few small tapas, the food is so good that it is worth it.
