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.

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).

We were interested in finding a place that locals visited and found this place. We were not disappointed. In fact, we went back the next evening and see enjoyed our experience. Service and food are great! The combination of locals and tourists made the scene all the more worthwhile. We recommend the prawns, and various seafoods....

There are tapas and tapas. These were excellent, fresh, high quality. Place was packed and we stood by the counter the whole time watching all the dishes coming out. We noticed a high amount of locals which is always a good sign in such a touristy city. Worth trying if you want good tapas.
