Don't be deterred by the extensive menu. Owner Ildefonso Jimenez has trained his people well. Simple tapas such as roasted almonds or pan-fried blood sausage are things you can't stop eating. More extensive small plates like cod croquettes are memorable. Classic gambas al ajillo (shrimp with garlic) is rich and pungent. The tapas remind you why shared plates are so popular.
