An Institution in Coruña

This is the first place you will be taken by a Coruñes/a if you are going for tapas. Get a draft beer, and a huge filling tapa (tortilla or breaded meat with red peppers among others) all for about 3€. The only thing to remember is you'll have to squeeze yourself in from 9pm on due to the throngs... read more

Excellent busy little bar, tapas 1€ so you know exactly where you are, food is constantly being cooked and sold so everything fresh, a great place to drop into as you stroll around.

Popped in for a quick Cerveza on the way back from the beach. Tapas were enormous, enough to make us reconsider having lunch. It's on a busy little street & they work hard. Great for takeaways too, by the looks of things.

We went there because we followed the suggestion of the staff at our hotel and we greatly appreciate having followed it. You pay 1 eur each tapa and also for small beers and small bottles of water. Restaurant staff was friendly even during busy times (and it gets busy!!). You see the kitchen staff frying the food in the kitchen... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel. It has 1€ tapas of all sorts! Quick service, fresh food while standing at the bar. Get yourself a conto (mini beer) to go with it and dinner is made. The chorizos and meatballs are great!

Nice cheap tapas bar but we arrived just after the lunch period so it was pretty quiet. However the tapas weere as good as our last visit and the portions are very generous for 1 euro. A great experience if you are in the city but make sure you go in the busy periods as athough it's hard to get... More

Tapas are the most famous dish in Spain, probably the best you can find are in Basque Country but you can have nice ones all over. Amazing place where you can have your dinner for 4€. Croquettes, tortilla, patatas bravas..they are all terrible but it's always packed. There are just four tables, in a normal night, you'll have to take... More

If you want to eat cheap tapas in a typical and crowded bar don't hesitate to visit this bar. You'll never forget the experience, it's really worth it.
