Good service, food and quiet location. Do not expect a traditional Spanish Tapas Bar. This is a more "modern version" and the owner is from the Neatherlands... Papas Bravas and the Tapa of Jamon Crudo are very good. Is not the cheapest place but is within range.

La Taperia is by far an excellent place for tapas. Although it's not so easy to find the place, which is by the way located in a good district but not so close of the historical center, it's worth it. At the beginning, you might be surprised by the setting, which is not conventional neither typically Spanish neither Iberian. But... More

The place was packed and nevertheless the service was very good and the food was excellent. Ask for patatas bravas, pulpos a la gallega and you can't go wrong.
