That is the word, DESPERATION, I have never been in a restaurant like this, the waitresses are so arrogant,the service so slow and the restaurant is not full. If you don't have so much time dont take lunch here, just run far away

Great food and service. Very good value. Try the razer clams! And if you are not a fish person, the "chuleton" is amazing too. Make sure you order it medium-rare. We will come back for sure!

We are here on Wednesday evening and had a lovely meal. We passed by on the afternoon and the smell and look of the food coming out of the kitchen made us book for the evening.

Very average place, without real interest.... Common place in a city where creativity can be married with traditional dishes.

One of the restaurants along the arcaded main street, this is somewhere we come and eat when we fancy some good seafood. I couldn't say whether it is any better or worse than the other very similar restaurants which line this side of the road under the arches, but it is certainly very nice. The food is well cooked, the... More
