The owner refused to apply the discount. He invented a new rule saying that our discount wasn't valid because we didn't book with one day in advance. We did the math and left the correct amount and he treated to call the police. He started shouting at his poor waiters and the other clients left. After one hour of bargain he accepted to grant half of the discount. Avoid this place at all costs if you don't like to argue and make a scene. The food wasn't bad though, but there were many spelling mistakes on the menu and, despite branding itself as a Spanish place, nobody knew a single word of Spanish.

I don't recommend it at all, as the dishes do not meet the quality-price ratio and the staff is very rude. They also didn't respect the expected discount.

A pleasant surprise.
I happen to drop in for a meal and was not expecting too much. I must say this comes close to what one would expect of a tappas restaurant. The dishes were tasty well prepared and served with a friendly smile. The food was of a good quality. Do not expect the same tappas as in Spain but comes close. The only disappointment was the Tortilla, not the taste but I would have liked a old fashioned high cake slice dish and not a flat baked dish. But really this shadowed but the other 12 excellent 12 dishes we had. Keep up the good work and we will certainly be back.
