This charming restaurant's heyday has probably passed, but it remains a worthwhile visit, serving mainly Spanish specialties in a calm setting with convivial service.
The tapas selection is solid and fairly priced. Everything seems well-prepared, including these succulent and savory garlic prawns.
Spinach with pine nuts. Grease-free greens for guiltless (but delicious) dining.
Braised oxtail. Tender and rich-tasting enough to elevate it above the bony, chewy oxtail found at many other eateries.
Fried feta cheese. A piping-hot pleasure; crisp on the outside, creamy within.
Mushrooms. Appetizingly aromatic.
Caesar salad. Crunchy leaves and a luscious yolk, mingling beautifully with a light dressing.
Seafood paella. Not bad, but not outstanding; lots of seafood in this, though it could all be fresher. Also, the rice might benefit from a stronger infusion of saffron.
Snow White cheese cake for a fairy-tale finale, luxuriously moist and smooth.
Bread-&-butter pudding. A mammoth treat, ideal for carb-loading.
Red wine sangria...
...and white wine sangria too! Delectably intoxicating.
