Our second visit to Xellini, last time being 4 years ago, where we came away with very positive memories. This trip was a little disappointing. Food was ok but nothing to rave about. Prawns in garlic didn't taste great.. We have had far better elsewhere. They tasted frozen or over cooked. Croquettes (cod in particular) were tasty. Artichoke omelette was... More

We debated for a while before booking a table here, last year we really enjoyed the food but hated the service - however we are glad we overcame our concerns as we had a fantastic evening. Reading the other reviews it would seem you can either get lucky or unlucky here, they do not seem to be consistent. The staff... More

This was the third visit in as many years and will be our last! They could not find our booking which strangely enough happened last year. Unfortunately the waitress knocked over my wife's red wine and a bottle of cola which did nothing for the looks of my white linen shirt and pale shirts. We were offered some fabric spray... More

Really enjoyed our meals here, good variety of tapas to pick from and some excellent wine choices. The terrace is lovely at night but the bar area inside is really pleasant also. Good staff and service

We stopped here for lunch last week. Lovely little shaded outdoor terrace. We ordered a couple of platefuls of food and some drinks. Chicken with garlic sauce tapas was delicious, but after waiting an hour our ham and cheese plate still hadn't arrived. Despite all other diners around us who ordered after us having been served, the waitress still assured... More

We ate here as a family several times. The food is good (not great). For the price of the dishes I'm not sure what some reviewers expect! Staff were friendly and efficient. We only ate outside, which meant we needed to book at lunchtime to be sure of a table. Felt far more authentic than many of the other Deia... More

We had been looking forward to this meal as menu and place look great. We ordered 3 tapas dishes, salad and bread. So glad we stopped at that. Meatballs arrived cold. Lamb dish luke warm, and king prawns nothing special. Was all on the cold side and lacked flavour. We weren't in the mood to complain so ate up, paid... More

We ordered 5 tapas, none of which were particularly good. The meatballs were cold and had to be sent back, calamari just average, the most expensive bit of manchego I've ever eaten... This is the second time we've visited as we went in 2012 when it was also pretty rubbish, some people just never learn!

We had a great meal here, lovely wine and a broad range of tapas dishes. We sat in the garden area which was well shaded and had a pleasant atmosphere. We were very happy with the service.

Good tapas, friendly staff. Being Scottish we did not mind watching England get knocked out of the World Cup here.
