The Food

You can order the tapas separately or in a menu. The menu is cheap (16-20 Euros, choice of 6 tapas, with a drink included) and is perfect when you’re seeking for a light meal. The tapas have surprising ingredients and are presented in a creative way by a friendly, funny waiter.

Some examples of the tapas:

Truffled egg
Moorish meat skewer
Micro pizza
Foie Deluxe
Wild mushroom mini toasted sandwich
Bacon&date mini toasted sandwich
“coca” slice

The Wines

The bar has its own Cava, which is good and comes at a cheap price. In the tapas menu we ordered there was one fresh fruit shake included as well, so we did not order other wines.
