The place : Heading towards Spain in a setting reminiscent of a bodega located in the Batignolles area. We love the retro XL stained glass window behind the counter filled with ready-to-eat tapas, not to mention the bright veranda filled with beautiful plants: a cozy corner to lounge on the large, plush velvet sofas... ¡Olé!
The plates : Ultra-generous tapas including classic pan con tomato (€4.50) or the creamy tortilla with mayo (€12). For an after-work aperitif, the mixed platter is a must, with slices of Iberian ham and sheep cheese (€35). To continue, small shared or solo dishes are presented on the menu, such as the ensalada rusa (€12) or New Caledonia prawns (€12).
To drink : A lovely cocktail menu including a pimped-up sangria with apricot syrup and tonic (€12) or a tangy daiquiri with fine salt, a delight (€12). Naturally, you'll also find natural wines from the Mediterranean region, such as the fruity orange wine (€9 per glass) or the Indigeno, an Italian red wine with hints of red fruits that pairs perfectly with the platter (€9).
