This is one of the best (and most hip) restaurants in Salamanca. Like most other places they do traditional tiny tapas. You get one rib or one slice of meat at a time, unless you specifically order a racion which is a whole plate. Unlike a lot of other places, they cook a lot of the food to order -... More

If you go to Salamanca you must eat at this restaurant. The food is wonderful we ate there for two nights. I am very picky about wine, so they let me into their wine cellar to select my wine. When I asked the price of a good bottle of wine it was only €17:00 at home $50:00 plus. The food... More

Great tostas, but the best thing is pincho Moruno, meat grilled and served on toast. It is not always available, and they might growl at you if you ask for it at the wrong time, but that is use part of the fun. Great ambiance and great food!

Bambu is open around the clock and buzzing with all types of people- families, young people, old people, groups and singles. Many people are standing around the bar, socializing and eating. Go to the bar and order your food and drinks- which they give to you instantly. Fun, loud atmosphere with good tapas (the toast with red pepper stuffed with... More

Kinda hidden, centrally located (a few steps from Plaza Mayor almost next door with Burger King), once you go downstairs you find a very nice restaurant, modern, with a wide variety of tapas. Really cheap, great service, good food. I had 4 drinks (coke and "mosto", chich is grape juice) which came along with 4 tapas of my choice +... More

We went here for dinner on the off-chance and were pleasantly surprised. Despite the downstairs location the dining room is airy and bright and the service attentive. We were a large group but our order was executed efficiently and the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. All our meat dishes were excellent and cooked as requested and they have a fairly... More

This place is perfect if you are doing a tapas tour or just need a quick tapas and a drink. Service all the times I have been has been quick and the food is delicious! Great choice and very well priced (around 2-2.50 Euros for a drink and tapas). Would recommend to anyone who visits Salamanca.

Nice place to have tapas at average price (€2.2 for tapa and drink). The food was excellent (hamburger and pincho moruno the most recommended) while the atmosphere is too "modern" for a Spanish tapas bar. You can contrast it with Cervantes bar in Plaza Mayor. It has a restaurant but we didn't eat there.

Great to find a tapas bar a little different from the traditional Spanish decor. Modern decor, very wide selction of good quality tapas/pinchos, friendly staff and ridiculous value. E2.50 for a lovely glass of Ribero de Douro and a tapa. You can have a real dinner here for E8 with three glasses of wine. Te aconseco ir ahí. I suggest... More
