The menu is not expensive. Imagine my surprise when my fish, lumina, added European 25 to the bill. More than 2X the price of any fish dishes on the menu. Just a place that likes to soak tourists when trade is down. Dumb.

This may be a great bar/restaurant for the Spanish but if you are a Brit BEWARE. The older guy in there is fine and very pleasant but there is a young guy who works there who rips you off. You will know him he has a diamond stud in his ear. Please BEWARE and when he comes with the bill... More
