Bar
“Simply my favorite place in town for cañas and tapas. It's cheap, the beer is good, so is the wine and the waiters are really friendly. You'll find it crowded: it's normal, but if you wait for a few minutes you'll get a table. Great tostas (slices of bread with stuff over it).”

Place to eat
“The terrace (when you find a place to seat) has amazing views, and it's a very peculiar place, as you have to enter an office building to go to the last floor. Not many people knows this great place. Great for an easy lunch with views, for a coffee or a drink anytime!”
