We stop here for lunch, it was crowded but we waited for a table since tapas look great. We were right, very good tapas, we had Migas, Lengua al limon (cow tongue), some tostas ( toasted bread with goat cheese and jam, and another one with pork, really good), a salad and Croquetas de Boletus, these last ones were awesome,...

Great spot to park for a while between the various nearby attractions. The food selection and quality is good; especially given the modest prices. Most tapas run 2€ and beer/wine 1 - 3€ per glass. It looks like a newish establishment, déco is basic/modern. Service was efficient, not overly friendly.

The staff were really helpful especially considering we can't speak Spanish. They brought us the English menu ad tried to make suggestions. We enjoyed the couple of tapas we had but I think we made a mistake by ordering raciones instead of sticking with tapas. It's a busy place with people always queuing for tables. Overall a good night but... More

I cannot fault this place. Even though it's busy, it has enough waiters that you don't notice. They attend to your every need. Ask any question, get a genuinely helpful answer, no matter how busy they are. I asked for a recommendation of a local wine, they gave me Basangus 2008 Crianza...it was spectacular, I could drink it by the... More

We were in Merida to see the magnificent Roman ruins and went into this tapas bar with a bit of trepidation as it was very near the museum and you always worry they are a bit touristy and pricey. We couldn't have been more wrong. First of all it was hooching, packed to the gills and they were all locals.... More

We had just left the Museum when we saw this place and recognized it from the reviews here. Decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. Tapas are the best in this restaurant. On this day there was a promotion where for 1€ you could get a slice of bread with a delicious prosciutto and a glass... More

The pour of wine was nice and the tapas ample.. but the staff wasn't particularly helpful ("yes we have wifi but I don't know the password").. We moved up the street to Castuo (who also doesn't have wifi, but were otherwise more helpful!

We sat at a table of this bar by chance rather than because of an "informed decision". It's located in the proximity of the main archeological ensemble in the main street that leads to the city centre, almost in front of the Roman Museum. We were just passing by and we wanted to have some spanish tapas: we chose it... More
