This is the place to feel Barceloneta with Estrella beer and the usual mix of young local and tourist crowd. This is not rhe best place for tapas but most of them good most of fhe time

Looked promising on passing a few times. Couldn't get a table at other places so gave this a go as two tables were free inside. It's visited by locals and tourists. Service was not polite. Waiter was preoccupied and not very presentable or accommodating to children. Half of the dishes ordered were below average. Some dry, some not well flavoured.... More

My husband, 2 children and I visited this restaurant for tapas based on a recommendation from our tour guide. It was amazing! We had to go back on a 2nd day. One of our children is super picky but even with our limited Spanish, they were able to accomodate all of our requests. The seafood was especially amazing.

This place was recommended by the receptionist at our hostel. It's slightly off the tourist track near the beach. The tapas is amazing, and the prices are also reasonable. There is always a wait for a table but it is worth it. We did struggle to get the bill when we were ready to leave as they were so busy,... More

The food (especially the garlic gambas, order a lot of those) is nice and the joint has a cool ambience. However, you should expect it to be cramped full of people looking for a place to sit. We ordered 6-7 different tapas and the quality differed (the pincho moruno was underwhelming) but was generally very good. Since there are lots... More

A friend recommend this tapas bar. There was a huge queue but we decided to wait. It was worth it. The tapas were great and served quickly. The sangria served in a pint glass quenched the day's thirst. The waiters were friendly with great sense of humour.

After reading the reviews I expected something better. The staff were friendly enough, very authenticate local cuisine. Really need to speak Spanish to get the most out the tapas bar. The food was ok, but compared with other tapas places we have tried during our stay; this was not one of the best. Wouldn’t return.

When travelling with a 2yr-old finding a nice place to eat is difficult. You want local + tasty + affordable + nice vibe + (and most importantly) family friendly. This place has got all the above! Even though there's a big crowd and the waiters are obviously busy, they'll take time out to ensure that you're comfortable, find a nice... More

Recommended by the locals once again. Was not disappointed at all... atmosphere was buzzing, a very small Tapas place with inside and outside seating. Good place to go and soak up a traditional Spanish Tapas.
