    Do the chefs tasting menu and leave it up to him - everything was so tasty. They are closing end of April, so get a meal in before!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Ensaimadas and the paella. Ask about the Russian interior, a beautiful/fascinating mural.

    Concise menu with a few cold salads, then moves on to hot plates, both small and large, with perhaps a half-dozen more daily specials posted on a chalkboard. Olivar is informal and inexpensive. Read more

    Go to Olivar and squeeze yourself into one of their tables. Then order sardines and a glass of wine
