Facilities: Great general cleanliness
Strong points: Relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices and excellent tapas!
Diego in Shizuoka City is one of those places where you can eat, drink and relax in good company without ostentation and enjoy simple pleasures and great company, whatever the gender or the age!
As for the lone wolves, the long counter can field them all!
I visited Diego the other day with workmates as the “second stage” of our night out. Perfect for a good talk accompanied with light refreshments. Actually, all the other guests seemed to be of the same mind, especially the ladies!
Although the concept is that of a tapas restaurant/bar, the wines, all tagged at the same price, come from France, Italy, Spain and other countries. Naturally, there are drinks for all priorities.
For the specialists! Very reasonably priced!
Naturally, we couldn’t get through the whole menu but the follwing should give you a good idea of the reasonably-priced and excellent dishes with an international flavor although most of the ingredients are local:
Iberico raw ham!
Cut in front of you!
Beautiful tomato salad!
Succulent smoked chicken salad!
Unusual wine-stewed spare ribs!
See you again there soon!
