The cheese selection is absolutely brilliant. Top quality offering from local artisan producers means you will have a cheesegasm with one of their plates, which you can select your choices depending on your faves. Croquettes of meat or fish, burrata, escalivada, divine pan con tomaquet, desserts, tartar, and more will make choices difficult, or you’ll just stuff yourself silly.
What a charming place. They have kept the history, the details, and the interior design to feel homey, historical, and trendy all at the same time. You can have an intimate lunch or dinner for two, or even bring a large group to enjoy a tasting menu. With a second floor up a circular staircase, you’ll love your experience.
A group dinner in the second floor dining area can make a social gathering just that something extra.
