Great atmosphere

Very busy Friday night but got squeezed in at the little tables opposite the bar where we could watch the world go by! Staff lovely. Between the 2 of us we had 1 garlic bread to start (massive portion!), meat balls, sardines and garlic mushrooms. More than enough as very generous sized portions.

Birthday dinner was made even more special by staff especially since iconic Jose. Creatures of habit we had usual garlic mushrooms, prawns chorizo and fresh bread rolls. Never disappoints! Highly recommend booking when Jose there as he completed the dining experience!

this restaurant was very busy but the service was quick, efficient and friendly. The tapas were very generous and tasty and the sangria was delicious.

I adore Capitan Torres. We have tapas here every chance we get. The staff are lovely and the food is delicious. Sit at the bar, sip a sangria, and try everything. I especially adore the chorizo in red wine, soaked up with some bread. Marvelous!

We dined with 7 adults and a new born and the place was cramped when full of customers @ 9pm, not ideal but we wished to try the Menu Special from outside in being Suckling Pig! While we were jammed into the restaurant with others it soon filtered out as customers began to left close to 10pm. The service was... More

The suckling pig is yummy! I have eaten here before, the food has always been good, fresh hot bread. I Did ask the waitress for quality olive oil to go with my bread but only got the standard issue in their oil shaker. It was good but not the best. That is a very minor comment which is outweighed by... More

We received very good and fast service after I said we were in a hurry. The Maitre D was charismatic but took too much control. We wanted Tapas but, to be fair, I didn't say that and did not realize some of the Tapas were also mains. We also wanted wine by the glass and he organized that but did... More

We entered a nearly empty restaurant across from our City Life hotel. The place had only one pair of customers, and we worried. But the maître d came and sold us a bill of goods that turned out to be an absolutely magnificent meal + perfect, wonderful wine to match. We had Spanish dishes and we had seafood. We shared...
