Good food ends with good talk ...
RACIONES (small plates)
We offer a selection of 'small plates'' that can be eaten individually or shared between your table. You can keep it simple or make it as complicated as you like. Our dishes are cooked from scratch in our kitchen, essentially hearty and unpretentious. Ingredients are fresh, flavors are robust and presentation is straightforward.
Raciones are essentially a style of eating that means sociability. People of a like-mind talking and drinking in a relaxed atmosphere while nibbling away on little dishes of intense flavour.
For those that prefer a single dish, we have a selection of 'large plates' with regular-size portions.
