Having seen this place recommended in our guide book we went here for a late afternoon meal. The interior of the restaurant is lovely and has a real old fashioned charm, but sadly that's one of the only good things I can say about our...More

It is relaxing and this restaurant attracts both travelers and locals. We enjoyed tapas and paella. All excellent in the standard of Asia. Wine is also fine. Small complaint is too much garlic. One may ask the chef to reduce the amount.
