You'd better know exactly where you're going because this place isn't easy to find. There's no sign out front, and the restaurant is only the width of one small storefront. And once you do discover it, you'll feel like you've uncovered a little gem. The food is excellent--especially the artichoke appetizer and the fish entree. The menu is an odd mixture of cuisines, but somehow they make it work. I liked just relaxing and staring at all the fun objects on the walls. You feel transported--like you're visiting someone's grandma on the coast of Andalusia.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
