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

Very nice location, vibrant atmosphere. Lots of locals go there to enjoy a glass of beer or wine and eat the best tapas in town. Quality food, rustic, simple dishes. No frills and lots of flavour. Highly Recommended.

If we hadn't gone to El Frances the night before, I might have reviewed this one higher.. It's certainly good.. And quite a few locals here.. But I preferred El Frances.

We stumbled across the place while exploring Tarifa. As we walked past the kitchen window, the smell was delicious so we decided to grab a seat. The food is fantastic, simple food quality ingredients prepared to perfection. We were in the area 6 days and ended up having dinner there 3 times. The best place we experienced here and very...

Had an amazing meal here, got the 'pollo, heuvo, patatas y pimiento', only one dish so doesn't sound like a lot of food but was incredibly filling and so tasty. Couldn't help but to go again, the place was heaving both nights, we had to queue for a table. The service is typically Spanish, fast and to the point but... More

Only place to eat in Tarifa. Nothing compared, great value and good beer. We visited early 2011 and it wasn't open every night so we only managed one visit. I can not wait to return, It felt very authentic and it was so good : ).

During our 2.5 week stay in Spain, which included time in Barcelona, Madrid, Granada, and Seville, the best tapas we had were here. We definitely ordered too much, but we weren't really prepared for the portion sizes they gave us, which were quite hearty compared to a lot of other places we had been to prior. Even with the enormous... More
