Well what can I say, another fantastic visit to The Bowl Full. The choice of food is brilliant, there's something for everyone. Great atmosphere, quick and extremely friendly service. We had starters then 6 tapas dishes to share between the 2 of us, followed by desserts and coffee, great value for money too. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit,... More

We have been twice now and on both occasions with good friends. The atmosphere is so inviting, making it a wonderful place to share precious time with friends. The food is exceptional, combining a great mix of local and Spanish produce in tapas dishes. There is a good selection of wines all at reasonable prices and the service is friendly... More
