The restaurant was very trendy and cosy, something that always attracts me. The service was so and so, the waiter was friendly but didn't seem to love his job very much. Something I could forgive him, given the very hot temperatures today.
But then the tapas. This restaurant does not serve tapas, they serve some appetizers with wine and you'll probably walk out there still craving something that really fills your tummy. There's not much choice: cold platters with ham, cheese and olives or warm 'tapas' from the counter. On the counter is a really small fridge, where you can choose from tree different things. Our choice of the day was a beef stew, ratatouille and tortilla.
Unfortunately we already ate some ham and cheese in another café a little earlier, so this left us not much choice. My boyfriend couldn't resist to go for a second plate of ham and cheese, but I went for the beef stew and ratatouille. The quality was ok, though the ratatouille wasn't properly heated and the beef stew (although very tender cooked meat) had really undercooked carrots in them. In any case, this is not my idea of 'tapas'. The cold plate was of really good quality, no remarks there.
We topped it off with some crême brulée, since we still had some room in our tummies. Mine was a little too 'brulée', but it didn't bother me really. All in all, a good desert.
The wine was perfect. I drank two different red ones and they were both very enjoyable. Local as well, which I also appreciated.
One last complaint though: they poured my second wine in the same glass. The final straw that broke the camel's back, at least for me. I'm not convinced. Given the high ratings it had on TripAdvisor, I expected a little more.
