With a number of seafood, meat and vegetarian options this is a good place to go for quality food and not be feel stuffed after. Their small plates are perfect for sampling a variety of options and are bound to satisfy every taste. The artichoke salad is a great way to start off the meal followed up by the burrata, a tomato marmalade on a burrata cheese crostini. The creamy cheese melts in your mouth and blends perfectly with the tangy tomato flavoring. The patatas are another original option. The potatoes in combination with the brava sauce, fried egg and spicy chorizo create a delicious dish.
For dessert, our server suggested the fried custard topped with a scoop of almond ice cream and a cinnamon sugar glaze with almond slivers. The result; a delicious, creamy, bowl similar Cinnamon Toast Crunch and a great way to end the evening.
They change their menu frequently and their outdoor section will be a great place to enjoy a fresh cocktail on a summer day.
