Surely reviews are subjective and therefore cannot be classified as inaccurate or biased? My comments were based on my experiences at the restaurant (and many others I have spoken to have had similar experiences). And perhaps they are learning by their mistakes - let's hope so.

I guess the only way to find out is to try it... For me it was the prices and the rude owner who drove me away, having been going regularly since it opened. But of course there will be many who don't mind the prices nor the surly staff...

it used to be a lovely, cosy place run by a very nice spanish man antonio. it has since been taken over by english and has changed completely - very expensive menu, not very friendly and no longer somewhere you can go and drink and 'tapear on the terrace' - they expect you to eat a full-blown pricy ...

you can get hipp organic jars in supersol and presumably in other supermarkets too... otherwise probably easier to make batches of mush rather than bringing out jars.
