Sitting in this square drinking beer and eating tapas. A great way to pass the early afternoon. Staff were friendly though service was a bit slow. Not a problem if you just want to soak up the atmosphere.

This was a quiet late morning/lunch period in June so the service speed was not tested but the food quality was excellent from a Salad Nicoise to a supreme pizza. Nice place to watch the world go by.

Waiting, waiting! The waiters didn´t see the guests. They just stood there, talking to each other, smoking and seemed to be not interested in the costumers! The warm food was cold..... We waited 45 min for a pizza!
