I can understand some of the comments from 1 or 2 of the other reviews it can be a little rough around the edges and the gents bogs defiantly need sorting but it has something that most other places don't and that is a bit of life. I've been popping in here with family and friends for donkey's years and... More

We are new to tapas so starting in an authentic tapas bar was probably not such a good idea....however this only added to our whole experience and we ended up going three times! The staff are Spanish speaking and the menu is mainly Spanish but we found all the staff very helpful and friendly! If you want English 'tapas' find... More

Recommended here. 1st visit served by unfriendly, cold Spanish waiter Miguel, spoke to is as if we were English invading his tapas bar! However food & atmosphere great, bustling, buzzing place, almost all Spanish eating, which is good. Not to be deterred, went again today, Miguel 'served' us again & I use that word loosely! Service is not a word... More

We cannot believe how anyone has bad experiences here, this year we went to La Gamba 3 times in two weeks, always great service, lovely staff, great beer wine and tapa and superb value, always a great atmosphere and a great vibe. The fact that most of the staff are the same year after year must say something! We have... More

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
