Loved it!

Ate here with my family and loved it. Had 6-7 items and was not disappointed. The best were the razor clams, shrimp, and Brie covered with almonds that was roasted and then topped with jelly. Service was great and prices were fair. We would definitely go back.

This seems to be the busiest tapas bar in Franco and it's a great experience. I've had tastier food but it doesn't really matter. It's being there that's important. The waiter was friendly, attentive and speedy. Pushed the pan catalan which wasn't that great but we came away feeling happy and that's what it's all about.

It is kind of funny. All the other tapas bar won't be as crowded as this one. So that might mean something. And it does. Amazing tapas and great sangria. Hapiness is just around the corner. Or in this case, inside the bar.

Visited this evening after looking at Tripadvisor and asking for recommendations from the reception at our hotel. Great tapas, great service and good atmosphere even though we were the only Brits with limited Spanish we were welcomed warmly and selected with assistance of the staff. The food came out in stages which was great and the recommendation for desert was... More

the bar was recommended by the hotel where we are staying, the food was fresh, tasty and excellent. And not expensive. Our waiter was patient with us and even took us up to their display case and advised what each tapas was. We made our choices, and were served the food in good relaxed time. It was a great way...

We ate here twice during our stay having a selection of tapas both times. The restaurant was always packed and even in January had people queueing for tables. The service was very efficient and the staff helped us with our choice explaining everything in English. A selection of tapas including a drink was averaging €30 for two persons. I would... More

This restaurant is in the old part of Santiago, with good and some innovative tapas. It is worthwhile to try. A little bit expensive.

Went "de tapeo" here and were happy with it! Tried many things: pulpo a la gallega (the famous octopus dish), pimientos al padron, gambas a la plancha (grilled shrimps), bacalao con miel (cod with honey), pescaditos fritos (mini, whole fried fish), mini hamburguesa de ciervo (deer), solomillo de cerdo (pork fillet) and huevos con chorizo (fried eggs with sausage).
