My expectations were high and although the food was good, I admit it was not exceptional. Overall average quality, OK for a dinner.

Do not hesitate in having dinner or even a few tapas here. You will not regret it at all. You can also see the guy in the kitchen, working in your meal and trust me, it will make you hungrier!
