Ken de Spaanse keuken vrij goed daar ik vaak voor het werk in Spanje vertoef (alle regio's) en is m.i. 1 van de meest authentieke Spaanse restaurants in Brussel: de keuken is voortreffelijk en gevarieerd, de service vlekkeloos (15 jaar in Belgie doch beheerst de Spaanse Ricardo onze beide landstalen perfect!) en verzorgd, sfeer alsof je in een kelder in Castilie zit. Het is niet bij de deur voor mij maar de Ik maak met plezier de verplaatsing!

Aanbevolen voor de mosselen en momenteel doe ik H/T 70 km om er te gaan eten maar het is het meer dan waard: als grote mosselfan durf ik te stellen dat ik ze nergens beter vindt. De service is relaxed maar heel goed, kader is heel aangenaam. Mij zullen ze nog vaak zien.

Nice atmosphere, good service but the food is not at the same level, i ate starter and main course and my stomach was exploding: way too heavy dishes to be 'fine' cuisine. Taste was ok but avoid when you want to eat something 'light'

Heard many good things about this restaurant but came out disappointed: we went jan. 2nd and they had quite a lot of tables although they lacked staff. As a result the service was really slow and chaotic. The atmosphere is not my cup of tea but that's of course a personal opinion. The food (most important for me): we started with beef carpaccio. Normally something you can't do harm but unfortunately, there was hardly olive ol and couldn't get any from the waiter. The scampi-curry was following a resume in the menu "the end" but can point out 3 adresses in Brussels where you find a better one. My penne all'arabiata, an absolute classic was a disappointment: the pasta were 'al dente' 3 minutes before they took them out. Disappointed and will never go back. Lack of staff is an excuse: don't accept so many tables if you can't serve them properly.

Apparently opinions can differ: i ate there twice recently and used the take-away twice as well and i must say that the quality was really good: to me it's one of the only Italian restaurants I've visited outside of Italy that really comes close to the traditional Italian cuisine and doesn't serve a "tourist/belgian version of Italian food: a spagetti bolognese can't be found but is a real traditional spagetti al ragu, made as it should. Service is good, atmosphere could be improved a little bit but is still more than ok.

One of the best restaurants I've ever visited! Been there twice and two times, came out with the feeling of having experienced something exceptional. Took twice the 5-course menu with adapted wines + aperitive + coffee for +- 100€ per person which seems a lot but is a correct price for the quality you get. Top experience,... I strongly recommend it!
