The staff

Young and amenable.  When Sunday morning hangovers kick in, you might have to gently remind them a couple of times about your order but hey, you probably ain’t so fresh yourself.


Chocos – deep fried cuttlefish

Best bits

Ace tapas, great value for money.  Get there before the tourists discover it.
