Very good tapas bar and restaurant at Plaza Merced, nearby. Tapas at the bar only, restaurant menu at the sit down tables outside and upstairs. A specialty is a whole suckling pig which you have to preorder the day before, but it is totally worth it if you are a group of 6+ and like to eat something special.
