    Great location and the food is very very good, enjoy a good time and sit outside in a nice garden. However be prepared to spend around 600¥ for a dinner w/o drinks but it is worth the rice

    Everything is just great!!! Amazing food and drinks. The brunch is our favourite and the free flow of cava just fits in perfectly :) The octopus carpaccio was simply delicious!!!!

    Wonderful terrasse. Had the lunch menu. Caprese salad (phenomenal), red snapper (excellent, but little too much oil), ice cream and a cappuccino for 128. Fantastic experience.

    The Italian burratta salad is a very young sphere of mozzarella smothered in rocket leaves, truffles and dotted with green cherry tomatoes and toasted pine nuts for a simply incredible dish (165RMB). Read more

    I like its afternoon tea time service. (Check the picture). It's really a quiet and secret place for meeting and private reunion only im rhe afternoon. Ay dinner time, it's usually packed w/h people.

    Happy Business Lunch from Tuesday to Friday, 11:30am to 3pm. You can choose from our lunch menu; one appetizer and one main course, plus a drink (soft drink, draft beer or juice) for only 98 RMB!

    My new favorite restaurant. Everything was amazingly delicious, the staff was very polite and the atmosphere was lively. Can't wait to find a reason to go back again.

    Great Spanish restaurant! Nice tapas and very delicious deserts. A bit pricy but good service and great atmosphere. Only negative thing - smoking area everywhere.

    Great Spanish tapas restaurant. Menu changes with the seasons. When the weather allows, large outdoor garden patio is the best.

    Everything we had here was great. Iberico ham, burrata, and the Sangria stood out.

    Really tasty tapas in a nice cosy restaurant. A bit pricey but worth the splurge.

    Burratta salad was amazing. I almost didn't get it based on the price. I'm glad I didn't make that mistake.

    Brunch was overrated for what it was, bland food. 175 without drinks. Service was also not good. They don't know what they are serving you and every course came all at once. Better choices elsewhere.

    Food ok, could be better. High prices. Good service but they forgot to bring a birthday candle after call them 3 times to make sure they have it. Not recommendable at all. FAIL

    Tres bon brunch de 11h30 à 15h. La terrasse est super agréable, le service ok et les quantités plus que suffisantes. Endroit méconnu des touristes (expats surtout). Bon moment hors du temps 😄
