For those who really know and appreciate 5Js bellota ham, a must. There is not a lot to add to this. Order the bellota ham, the bellota ham croquettes. The tomato salad is a poem as well.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We sat outside and watched all the excitement out on the street. They gave us a delicious complimentary seafood starter. They had a great cheese plate and seafood paella. Wonderful wine and a good value.

worth trying this bar also for good wine and delicious tapas. Crowded so be patient - the service was slow but they have a lovely terrace where you can sit, eat and people watch.

Very slow and bad service, the chorizo was as tough as a stone, they didn't bring salt, their coffee is sour and is extremely diluted with milk. Never again.

Looking for a non tapas meal for a change, we were not disappointed here. Good mains, we had pork shoulder (beware if you want it well done!) and then I had the fruit salad for dessert. The photo on the menu is what you get. I counted 9 different fruits inc star fruit, kiwi fruit and strawberries. Great value at... More

We only stopped for a beer and coffee, but had a look at the menu and both the full and tapas menu looked very interesting and if we have time we will be returning to sample it. Had a look at the good on display on the counter and looked well prepared, but fellow reviewers don't seem to have been... More

Hoping this place has improved since visiting last year.This restaurant occupies a prime location in the Santa Ana Plaza, and we chanced upon it after finding a recommended tapas bar closed. I thought it a little odd that it was virtually empty despite other venues bustling to capacity. The initial relief at finding a table was soon forgotten by what... More

We only went for drinks here as it has a disabled toilet, the food menu didn't appeal. Service was good, they have 2 people who take orders and you pay the rest are waiting staff. Beer was quite reasonably priced (in line with everywhere else) and service was fairly quick. No complaints and it is handy for wheelchair users as... More

Watch your bill. They try to charge you for things that you have not ordered and this place is very expensive to begin with. The food was not that good. It was cold and they even brought us stuff that we had not ordered. Go somewhere else.
