This tapas bar located in La Latina quarter offers high quality products, wonderfully cooked. Everything we ate (bull tail, gnocchi, risotto and croquetas, enough for a 3-people meal) was amazing. Though it is not a cheap place, it is worth a visit.

The food was very good and good value. The dulce du leche volcano pudding with banana ice cream was one of the best desserts i... More

We were recommended this place by our tour guide and what a find. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the food matched the best we have in Sydney. A short walk from plaza mayor and off the tourist strip. Great value also.

I'd seen a travel show highlighting this restaurant and decided to go based on the more traditional tapas (tortilla, huevos rotos, etc.). However, the stand out dish was the eggplant and zucchini carpaccio with pumpkin seeds. The taste was deliciously smoky, the vegetables were incredibly fresh and thankfully I didn't feel heavy/uncomfortably full after devouring the entire dish.

Accommodating to foreigners... They even humoured our attempts to speak Spanish. All dishes looked and tasted amazing. Duck confit especially incredible. Very busy, but the staff coped superbly. Excellent atmosphere & decent value for money if you pick the right things.

If you want tapas with a modern twist there is nowhere better in town. Excellent value and friendly service too. Dinner for two and several beers for less than 35 euros a head. Each dish a revelation.

Though it was crowded (during one of the world cup matches), but we were seated and helped pretty quickly. The tapas were lovely, especially the iberico one and the eggs with truffle, though they are not very cheap (high quality food=high price applies here). The tapas' price is varied between 4-16 euro. The place also has a great vibe.
