Have been here many times, and have always received consistently high service. I was really surprised by the reviews below as my friends and I go regularly and have never had a bad night. The food is excellent (particularly the potato and octopus, the ratatouille with goats cheese, and the serrano ham is incredible; and that's before we get to the sangria!). The manager is really attentive and charming, and its one of the few restaurants that I've found where you can stay as long as you want without feeling like you're imposing or in the way. I can't recommend this place highly enough.


We came here for a coffee and take advantage of the outdoor sitting. We order coffee which was not warm enough and 2 pieces of cake. The chocolate cake was very very dry and the lemon cheesecake felt more like a chunk of gummy cheese. Definitely don't recommend it. :(
