Restaurant
“A great little place by the market, the patatas bravas here are the best I have ever had (they are a little different with sweet potatos and alioi included), the picanha steak is amazing as is the tuna. They also have a tapas menu if you just want a quick bite. Also have some really nice salads, that are a lot more filling than you might think! ”
