We came here the last night of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our hotel pre-booked a table for 7.30 but it was not too busy then but got busier so if you want to eat later perhaps book ahead. Not being an expert on Tapas we asked the waiter for his advice. He served us a selection of 5... More

We stopped here to try the Pre-Fixe Lunch which looked interesting. It was quite good, we also tried a few of the tapas plates which were excellent. The seating area is very nice, and the food, atmosphere and service were all quite good. We went again a second time for dinner and we weren't disappointed.

Have eaten here a number of times whilst on holiday over the last three years! The tapas is very, very good and my family and I thoroughly enjoy our meals - my favourite tapas bar anywhere! Food looks appetising when served so even my children are happy to try the prawns, calamari, codfish, etc. Very good customer service from the... More

The food here was by far the best we found in Maspalomas (which we now know is rather sparse on traditional Spanish Tapas restaurants!). The Octopus was great, the Steak was brilliant and the Croquettes & Aubergines were delicious. The service was great and the decor was warm and welcoming. So good we broke our rule not to eat in...

My husband and two teenage boys agreed to go here as I wanted to try some tapas. What can I say. Very good service, coupled with well cooked food but not exceptional. The boys had kebabs and hubby a steak. Again no complaints. Go here if you don't want anything special but need a good meal at a decent price.

A small place with most of its seating outside, nice but nothing special. I had a lovely fish dish the first day and a menu del dia the next; although the board offered a starter and a main as well as a dessert for the price, sadly the waitress failed to offer the dessert :(

Fantastic tapas, well worth a visit. Good quality food and wine and very reasonable on cost. We eat here twice during our stay and always good service.

Came across this Tapas bar by accident & was pleased to see all the positive reviews by others. Food was very good, house wine was very good and staff were spot on. Good place to relax & watch the world go by and rest after all that shopping.

Ok doesn't have the best views but good tapas well priced with totally quaffable wine by the glass. 50 euros for tonnes to eat (about 6 tapas) and 2 large glasses of wine each represents good value

First off ignore location given on here. Restaurant is directly opposite Grand Hotel Melaneras entrance. My partner and I went here tonight looking specifically for value for money. It did not fail . Corking food, friendly and efficient service. 6 tapas and two large glasses of wine each with bread for under €50. Brilliant. Yes there's a small screen with... More
