Best tortita de camarones I have ever had

The bar was extra full, we could not get a table outside, but luckily, we could find an empty corner inside. The service was quick and we tasted best tortitas de camarones so far. They were really good. We also had some salmorejo, which was nice and some croquetas, which did not impress us. All in... read more

Great place for eating. The quality of the food is amazing, the only con is that they do not offer service for the terrace, but that is a minor thing.

I agree with previous posts that there is a lot of hype about this place. We were lucky to get a table and table service at lunchtime as we went a bit early. The food was tasty enough but prawns expensive. 2 very large ones for 7 euro. We had nicer food and a more relaxing experiences elsewhere in sanlucar.... More

We had read many a review about this being "the best" place to eat in Sanlucar... so we tried it. To be honest, I've experienced much better since we've been here. Firstly the only table available was one next to a drain - the smell was not pleasant, so we moved inside & waited (amongst many others) for a decent... More

We eat here on a couple of occasions we like the freshly prepared food and the ease in which to make the selection. On one lunchtime when it was hot we enjoyed being sprayed with a fine miss of water to keep us cool. A must visit when in Sanlucar

We ate their speciality here which was the tortilla boquerones and some prawns. The prawns were very expensive. 4 prawns for 7 euro is outrageous. Everyone around us seemed to be eating the same as us. The smell was a lot of fried food and I didn't see or smell anything that looked really good. All the food looked quite... More

Excellent tapas and mostly excellent prices. Ask the price of each tapa or point to it on the menu before ordering. Some fish/seafood is very expensive but most dishes are good value.

Meal for two during the evening, we ordered 5-6 tapas between 2 of us and the standouts for us were the deep fried shrimp fritters, the lamb chops on skewers, and the superb large local prawn’s .ans. We walked in off the street not having booked, and were warmly greeted and well looked after. Service was rapid and we sat... More

A tapa of said tortillitas was 3 euros and you got two - absolutely delicious concoction of light batter which gathers the little shrimps in it (plus some parsley and garlic). Worth the trip.
