A great addition to the Almeria dining scene

This was the first time we have visited this restaurant a.k.a. Joseba Anorga Taberna, in Plaza de la Constitucion.

We ate here whilst staying at the Plaza Vieja & the food is fabulous. I have been lucky enough to eat in some great restaurants around the world but the food here is up with the best of them. The service could be improved but the food is definitely worth the wait. The menu selection is excellent & I found... More

We made a beeline for this place because my husband read all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. However, we were really disappointed. The food was OK, and to start with our waitress was brilliant. However, as soon as the food was served we were completely ignored. We sat and sat waiting for service, and in the end decided we...

I wrote about the Añorga a while back & now they have moved to a new, upgraded location that was Plaza Vieja. I have to write again to recommend this to anyone visiting Almeria as the team have just gone from strength to strength & the new restaurant is off the scale for quality, value & service, it's simply amazing!...

This was the most amazing tapas place we have ever been to, and cannot wait to go back. The atmosphere, staff, cost (we only spent €30 total for 3 people), food and wine was better than anything else we experienced during our trip, it was on another level. The tapas presentation was a step above, attention to detail second to... More

I'm not usually a fan of restaurants located in or next to a hotel. I prefer to cast a wider net and try as many different places as possible. But Taberna Vasca was so good that on our four day visit to Almeria (staying at the Plaza Vieja Hotel next door) we visited twice. The food is Basque influenced and... More

If you enjoy eating great food at affordable prices the Taberna Añorga will blow you away! It's not about the surroundings (but rumor has it there is a move in the pipeline to a more exciting venue) Order small dishes (pinchos) or bigger portions to share from an amazing list on the chalkboard, and enjoy an incredible journey of flavours...

It is not as swish as some of it's competitors, but if you choose the right dish you can experience some of the best cooking in Andalucia. On a recent visit we had a brilliant whole monkfish, cooked to perfection , centre of aged beef rib, served japanese style on a hot slate , clean fresh sashimi delicately spiced, excellent... More

Many of the restaurants were almost empty so it was a delight to be welcomed by our waiter and shown a table surrounded by others obviously enjoying their food. In fact the table next to us were actors and crew from the Sir Ridley Scott film Exodus which is currently on location in Almeria province. The choice of tapas was... More

Visited this little bar/restaurant on the strength of tripadvisor and was so glad I 'd found it! Amazing, inventive tapas and a great wine list. All so reasonably priced too. Loved it!
