Where locals go for Tapas

Simple and straightforward, but all done with care. The tapas were delicious, service was great, bill was very reasonable. We were almost the first to arrive, around 7:30pm (midweek) - which was perfect as the waiter had plenty of time. After 15 mins, it started filling with locals, and was full by... read more

With my intro comment, I don't just mean the meal ... I also mean finding the restaurant in the first place. Just a quick tip: the tripadvisor map is quite precise; but once you finally find your way to Calle Placido Domingo (up to the very top of Av. de Tirajana, then the first right "downhill"), keep an eye out...

We ate here two times during our holiday in Gran Canaria. Our host advised us to make a reservation and that was a good advice! The place is crowded, especially when you want to have diner after 20.00 hours. The food is very tasteful and the staff very friendly. There is no menu, you just eat what is being served,... More

Had heard a lot about this place and had high expectations duly. The food was okay but not as good I as had heard beforehand. I did know before that there's no menu, you just choose from the counter. Although we came early in the evening,some dishes had already sold out. Service was polite and prices were reasonable.

I got a reccomended this place, but it was quite a rip off. The menu does not exists, meaning you have to basically have whatever the waiter needs to push ( and they are quite pushy). No menu means no idea of the prices either of course. The service was bad and rude, and we got the feeling we had... More

This place made a really welcome change from the tourist filled heaving restaurants in Playa del Ingles. It serves authentic tapas and small dishes. The service is excellent- the waiter was attentive and patient, and the atmosphere is intimate and friendly. A rare find in the area.

we have been at least 15 times to this little treasure in San fernando. Food is always fresh and tastes great and the service is very pleasant, even though they are busy at all times of the day, they make sure you feel comfortable and enjoy a great time.

We visited this little tapas bar at the end if December and we were very happy with the food and the service. It would have been easier having a paper menu but we chose the dishes from the counter and from other tables as they appealed to us and they were all very good. The price is also extremely fare...

The tapas are not bad but I do not understand why people are standing in line to get a table in this restaurant. You can easily find good tapas in the same area where you don't have to wait half an hour for a table. Once you get in it is really packed and you have to be lucky the... More
