We stumbled across this place after getting fed up with being nabbed by touts on the main tourist streets. It's just off the main tourist routes and well worth the search. The first attraction is the genuinely friendly attitude of the staff, very helpful and enthusiastic about their menu. We had a 1kg Steak between 2 and the other had... More

We had lunch here with two friends who know more about Spanish cuisine than my husband and I. The menu was unusual and it took a while to decide what to have. In the end we had the iberico bellota to share with a salad. Our friends then had the partridge stew which they said was excellent. We opted for... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance, actually on the hunt for something else This restaurant isn't on the main "touristy" area (but not far away). Consequently it is a bit more like what I think a traditional Spanish restaurant would be and not polished up for the tourists. One thing was immediately apparent. Even though the staff were not...

Had a great lunch in the november sun on the outdoor terrace. Great value for money and I was also very impressed with the quality of the food. We were 3 and had the fried fish with smashed eggs ( boquerones con huevo ) , the fried seaplant called ortiguilla , which is crunchy on the outside and gelatinous inside... More

A little restaurant away from the usual turist streets. Used by locals and their families as well. Has a nice service staff, and the food was OK.

The restaurant is in a quiet street just off the main drag. We arrived early in the evening at about 7pm, so it wasn't that busy. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The food was of a good quality, and elegantly presented. We particularly enjoyed the meatballs - a cut above the average.

Set back from all the usual tourist restaurants. La Cosmopolita has a casual atmosphere which is perfect to escape to at the end of a busy day. The highlight for me was the food. Unbelievable taste and so many options. My husband and I chose to dine there 3 times in a week as the food was so good. We... More

Modern tapas, but no messing and really good ingredients. The beef cheek was the best, but the tuna ran it close. I recommend the 4 tapas for 10 Euro. Very pleasant staff too.
