Chorizo del infierno

Nice atmosphere, good service, and great tapas. I had to wait a little while for a table, but all was ok, and greatly enjoyed...

Still one of my favourites more for the people than anything else. Plot yourself up at the bar outside or inside its better than round the side have a gander take some tapas and watch the world poodle by. Tip wouldn't bother with the rations the tapas are better quicker and cheaper in my opinion. The Mussels are very good... More

Never felt so unwelcome. I hasten to add. Not from the staff but from the locals. This is obviously the local meeting place where it appears they don't enjoy strangers in their howf. Consequently we didn't hang about as it felt quite intimidating. Don't get me wrong the place was buzzing, so must appeal to many, just not us.

Love this place and you HAVE to have the flaming chorizo as a tapa. Located in the early part of the town (near the gorilla) and lovely to sit at the "bar" area for a few drinks and tapas. There is one grumpy waiter (serves around the side outside) but aside fromt that this place is great.

We randomly came across this place after a trip to the dr! Food is lovely and the tapas is a must. Very reasonably priced and the clams were my favourite dish. Get there early as there were people literally fighting to get a seat

We came across this place just walking around the town. We were really impressed. Great tapas for a very cheap price. Staff were really friendly and helped us with the menu. It's a really local place as nothing is in English but we love places like this and the fact that the staff try and help makes it all the... More

This is a seriously good Spanish restaurant which serves tapas and meals. There's usually an excellent menu del dia which is brilliant value for money. Drinks and coffee are great value too. Would highly recommend this place to all who love Spanish Food.

We visited as a family of 5, 2 adults & 3 children. We always visit authentic restaurants on holiday as we love to eat where the locals eat. This was the first night of our holiday & we were made to feel so unwelcome by the rude waiter who had no customer service skills whatsoever. We asked for the tapas... More

This is a treat for any tapas lovers .The bar is open from dawn'til dusk and offers great tapas at amazing prices served from the bar. It also has a restaurant. We found the staff to be very friendly and the ladies in the kitchen worked hard to provide super freshly prepared treats. The bar is buzzing at night and... More
