Typical Bar in Granada. Amazing tapas and beer. I recommend roast ham, salmorejo and snails. The treat is astonishing and the place is always crowded. If you want to take a sit you must go early but it is worth it. The waiters are polite and quick.

The food is totally fantastic, you should try the salted meat! It's also cheap and the service is very good and fast. The staff look a little grumpy but are always nice. This... More

First thing I noticed when I walked in was the ACDC beer can on the bar! Great spot, loads of tasty choices and staff pretty cool and attentive. Mix of locals and tourists. Hats off guys, I enjoyed this place the most out of the ten other joints I visited in last two days.

Went here for a night out and wanted to find a local experience. We stopped in for wine and a nice drop it was then they proceeded to give us some wonderful tapas, all included. The wine was cheap and lovely the food was amazing. Don't need to go out to dinner just have the tapas from here

This is one of the best bars in Granada for tapas. The staff are friendly and the food is amazing. This bar is definitely worth a visit and is a true taste of Granada's tapas culture.

Suggested by the owner of the pension where we spent the night, it has been a great discovery. One sangria + tapa is very cheap and more cheap are the next tapas...food quality is very good!:)
