Super tapas spot, excellent service, good wine. Generous portions and nice staff. Very clean, close to the action, great atmosphere on Halloween night.

Okay, The overwhelming opinion appears to be one of enormous popularity. Fine if you like your "tapas" in a colourful and atmospheric square. What's not to like? During any kind of holiday or fiesta time you will be lucky to find a table. If you do find one (and it will probably be covered with the previous occupants mess) then... More

For a delicious gastronomic experience, go to Casa Balbino. Everything they prepare is top taste, top quality. Enjoy!

this is (rightly) the busiest bar in town. Its terrace is patrolled by prospective customers looking for tables! Inside its standing room only, and the huge staff are serving 10 at a time, while keeping all theo rders in their heads (and on the bar top)! Renowned for its huge variety of seafood - especially the tortita de camarones!

A top location for a real Spanish tapas experience. They offer a huge variety of tapas or raciones and all come in a good quality. On top the atmosphere is noisy and busy like on a food market.

My friends took me here for a tapas lunch. They wanted me to try my favourite tapa here as Casa Balbino make supposedly legendary Tortillas de Camarones - fritters of tiny shrimp dipped in a super light, tempura-like batter and deep fried. Oh my goodness! They were right! Delicious. I'm salivating now just thinking about them...you love food? then you... More

This should be No. 1. On Trip Advisor. It was filled with memorabilia. Full of atmosphere, people. The staff behind the bar were so helpful even though they were very very busy. We ordered lots and lots of delicious tapas, plus an exquisite bottle of red. All for less than 10 euros a head. How do they do it!! We... More

Plaza de Cabildo. Very busy, so be patient. Probably best for tapas.They have a terrace but I think you will have to slip the waiter some cash to get a table! I would recommend the Vino o Viña de Carmen, a nice light, slightly sweet sparkling wine. Refreshing. And you have to get the Tortillitas de Camarones, lightly battered shrimp... More

An excelente Experience and really unexpensive. You have to ask for the food you want in the bar, do not expect then waiters outside to do much. Worth going!!!!
