On the main street into the centre of Roquetas. Litter on the floor, and cramped plastic tables didn't create a good impression, but service was prompt, and there is a choice of free tapas. Try the Carne al Ajillo - pork (I think) in a saffron sauce and garlic. It gets very busy especially after 1 o'clock, and even more... More

We went to the place as we already knew it. Sat down in a table and enjoyed some good tapas. If you are only going for tapas you will need to drink lots of beer but, if you ask for some "raciones" the place is great. I will recomend the pulpo (octopus) which is quite a big meal with a... More

Attended on 31/07/14. Be aware if you're English DO NOT visit this bar... We went for tapas and a drink; the menu clearly states that if you purchase an alcoholic beverage then tapas is free (if not then you pay €1.50) ALL of the Spanish customers were receiving this... The gentleman who served us asked if we would like food?... More

Gutted we only found this place as our stay was coming to an end. This place was easily the best food we had in Roquetas. Very busy and you don't get an English Tapas menu and the waitress doesn't speak English ( or so she pretends ) but its well worth a visit. We got a few tapas that we... More

If you want a taste of real Spain then come here. A little Spanish helps if you want to order tapas but just ask and they will help you, especially if you do try to speak some of the language. They do have an English menu if you really must. The tapas, the vibe, the staff, the price - All... More

On going into this bar and sitting down a very offensive waiter came up and was so rude to us that we walked back out we felt very threatened by his attitude, this is the first spanish person that we have come across like this. We wont be setting foot back in there.

A local recommended this restaurant and it sure did deliver! The tapas was Amazing-the best I've ever had and the food was sensational. It's one of those places you never find out about unless you ask the locals. I wonder why? Definitely worth an entire evening for tasting and feeling like a true spaniard. Muy bien!

This is the place you imagine, when you think of a truly spanish tapas bar, full of locals , staff that know what there doing, quick service, fantastic tapas menu, family friendly, and all for the price of a €2 beer. Without a doubt the best tapas bar in Roquetas

Friendly, quick service, great outdoor scene and one of the cheapest tapas bars ever. Huge plates of ham, olives or Spanish sausage all for the price of a 2 Euro beer. This Bar / Restaurant is very Spanish usually packed with locals,a great atmosphere and must for Tapas lovers
