nice tapasbar

in the middle of the old town of Tarifan in one of the narrow alleys, you'll come across this bar. They serve real good tapas and have a nice range of good spanish wines. Very friendly, trendy terrace.

Some tapas in the evening were just necessary. We were appointed with some friends and met there having some beers and tapas. Additionally we got some Flamenco music from a popular Cameron de isla. What did we want more?!

We went with friends before it got really busy at night, didn't take long for all the tables to be filled. We ordered a few dishes and everything was excellent, great wine and beer. Would definitely go back - secreto iberico was best thing we had

I have been to to this place before and the experience was good, however this time round the staff shouted at you to leave and couldn't care less about you being there. Such a shame as the place could have been good!

This is a real no frills tapas. Get a table order some drinks and a bunch of half portions and you'll be real happy. Simple tapas. Had the chorizo. Smoked tuna. Some good wine. And really good prices.

We were in Tarifa for 3 days, every day around dinner time there was a huge queue outside bar Los Melli so we thought that this place was probably a good bet for good food. We were certainly delighted to have sat down at one of their tables for dinner. This is the place where Sanish people eat. The queue... More

The service is awful, the food is average and it's not really clean (the cutlery in the bread basket was dirty and two out of three glasses too). Not recommendable at all!

I have been there in summer 2011. By chance I found my self in Tarifa again in 2014. I went straight to Los Melli to try again the delicious Tuna a la plancha (on the grill). Because is was a different period of the year they explained to me that they are serving different part of tuna. But, it was... More
