    Try the Lobster in green sauce - I dipped it in the garlic sauce instead of the green sauce.

    Order like 4-5 tapas for couple I think so u can taste different things. Pallea, stuffed mushrooms and fried artichokes are great. Try mango sangria or mojitos (or both lol)

    unlike most restaurants. it is quite difficult to come here and eat food. the service is extremely lacking... on the other hand, if you enjoy waiting as an activity, you cannot do better than here!
