Great food with a great view. We eat here every time we visit Spain and will always recommend it to people. It gets very busy so I recommend booking in advance.

I see a comment about the grumpy lady and the service, scratch the surface and talk to her and you'll find a fantastic, witty and sarcastic host. I've visited this place a number of times over a 3 year period and it's never let me...More
