Food is well executed, and the kitchen turn out a wide variety of Catalan, Spanish and Oriental dishes. We particularly enjoyed the miso octopus, which was succulent and tender, and I loved the inclusion of pink peppercorns in the yakitori which gave it a piquancy not usually found.
It forms a quiet oasis in the centre of the city.
