Apparently famous for its massive tortillas (see picture! Apart from that, it's a tiny, typically spanish, bar. No outside space apart from the street and the mezquita steps over the road. Opened in 1966 (I think) and never updated. Worth visiting for that aspect alone with all the old pictures and newspaper cuttings around the walls

Tiny bar, famous for its tortilla. Order drinks and tapas at bar and sit outside on steps of Mezquita. Always crowded (as are steps), but barman always copes, and the mixed crowd on the steps are always good-humoured; have never, in many many visits, seen any problems!

My guide book said this was the place to eat near the Mezquita. So I went and there were only Spaniards in line so that made me feel good about my choice. The line was chaotic at best and the management needed to control it a bit more. The people behind me tried to cut in front of me but... More

Wow I have made a few million tortillas and eaten as many and this is my ultimate tortilla. So tasty you can't explain, the most amazing thing is the size of the tortilla. It is thick like a cake - unbelievable. This is a majorly busy tapas bar it has people spilling out its doors and sitting on the walls... More

I'm not a big fan of Spanish tortilla but I have to say this one is exquisite. The size of it may surprise you but it's taste will blow your mind.

Really tasty food, good prices and plenty food in portions. In the street on the back side of the cathedral so it's also very close to the centre.

Local bar, with a special atmosphere and great tortilla right across the streets from the mosque. Being from Andalucia, I had never had such tortilla before!
