Had prawns appetizer, beef short ribs and lamb sweetbreads. All meats were incredibly juicy, and in the case of the sweetbreads and beef had the perfect degree of flavourful char. Everything was prepared with gorgeous sauces / marinades. Truly a meatlover’s paradise!

We took the family; some had shared tapas, others had a personal meal. The food was really good. The empanadas were sensational and the staff were lovely. Would definitely go back
