Absolutely fabulous! We were lucky to be there while they were celebrating Oktoberfest and we each ordered a different item from the limited Oktoberfest menu and had amazing meals. The beers were of course, fresh and delicious. All the foods are scratch-made and so fresh; I have never had such outstanding sauerbraten. The prices were excellent as well. We will visit again next time we are in that area. Excellent service as well. More

We have been going to this place for a couple of decades. The switch to new owners 10 years ago was super-smooth and very successful. It is an amazing place for Tapas and paella and the wine list features some incredibly price-worthy wines. The chef is friendly and always makes sure everything is perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant. More

One of our favourite local restaurants, very good food and atmosphere. On this day, which was our 24th anniversary, they coincidentally had live music and was quite busy and energetic despite it being a monday night. More

The food was really good! I seriously recommend the octopus, it was a nice experience! Being Spaniard is difficult to find a restaurant where you can find Spanish kind of food like TAPAS. The owner was really nice and spend some time talking to us and going through the dinning experiences. Only bad thing was that when they decided it was too late, they opened the doors and we were frozen in a second enjoying the low night temperatures, despite finishing our bottle of wine. Certainly not very Spanish kind of restaurant...don’t go later than 8:00pm, the experience will end suddenly. More
