Ok. When my friend asked me how brave I was feeling that night I thought to myself... "Brave?" "In Ferrol?" "You have to be kidding me!!!". We all know each other. We all know EVERYTHING that is going on! Despite my initial reaction, I decided to let my friend decide where we would be dining that night... The car stopped in front of Vanessa. "Here???" I could not believe it! Vanessa is one of those places from the 90s where we used to have ice cream during lazy-Sunday afternoons...

Oh boy was I wrong... Dinner started with a small un-promising printed menu. There were approximately 20 small plates ranging from 2 to 10 euros. We ordered almost everything. Soon enough we realized that the chef (and yes, I call him chef), did not match the décor: it was a succulent succession of small delicacies, retaining the usual "tapas" style with a twist... The presentation of the tiny plates which, as bombs of flavor were landing at our table, was imaginative and tasteful. It is a tapas place, after all, but he was able to give delicacy to dishes as popular as cheese and anchovies...

I left the place longing for more... Since then, I have visited Vanessa in two more occasions. Each time, I had a pleasant, accommodating experience. I have not met the chef in person yet but, from here, I can only say that he is what a restaurant needs: commitment, enthusiasm, candor and sensibility. All these over a plate of bravas.

Please do not miss. I give it 4 stars because of the décor, however, maybe, that is what makes this place so fascinating... I do not know...
