An evening out should start here, you can order a beer and a tortilla and eat it outside sat on the wall outside the mesquite. The egg and potato tortilla at Bar Santos are a local legend and one you should try.

We came because it is kind of "magic" to eat tortilla next to the mezquita. The service is quite slow and we had to wait for a while. The tortillas are good but dont expect the one you make at home. Anyway if you are very hungry (as it happened to me) they are wonderful! If you go and see... More

We stopped in because we had heard about the famous tortilla. We ordered the tortilla, salmorejo, pisto con bacalao, and pimiento en plancha with beer and sat at the little table looking out at the Mezquita wall. Everything was very tasty, especially the grilled peppers, and the waiter was friendly. Great food, location, atmosphere and service. All over good value... More

We were recommended this place by a local and the tapas was excellent. We had the chorizo, patatas bravas, tuna and tortilla - good portions, enough for a lunch for 2. The bar is very small, with only one small table and 2 chairs, but there is a wall outside where you can take you drinks and food. Very close... More

We chanced upon this tiny bar and went in out of curiosity. Had no idea of its TripAdvisor rating or reputation. Saw the huge tortilla and, as someone sitting at the bar was having a slice, we said "We'll have 2 of what he's having and a beer and a wine" and the total cost was around 9 Euro. Very... More

We stopped to get a bite to eat and a drink on a hot day before going into the Mezquita. Yes, we tried the very high tortilla, but we also got a chorizo and took these and our drinks outside to eat along the side of the Mezquita, in the shade. The food was good, but that chorizo was so... More

I didin't try a lot of things here, because i got stuck on their fabolous tortilla. If you like spanish tortilla, this place is for you. Eat it sitting in the square, watching the Mezquita. Lovely!!

One of the few bars around the Mezquita where you get something special (giant tortilla de patata) without getting ripped off. The tortilla is nice and unique due to its enormous size, but I like more the traditional sized ones in a regular basis.

A hole in the wall place across from the Cathedral, Bar Santos is home to the biggest tortillas I have ever seen. Ten inches high and filled with flavour, if you are in the area, grab a slab.
