Great little find in Palamos, thanks to Tripadvisor. Authentic tapas served in a very busy bar which seemed to be frequented more by locals than tourists (which is always a good sign). Hot and cold tapas available, the former being delivered to your table intermittently for you to choose from, the latter being available on the bar. You pay per... More

This is the best place to eat real spanish tapas. The restaurant can provide food for 73 people maximum, but you will surely eat stand up near the central bar as this is a really little place and there is not lot of seats (but we found a table wth 4 seats when we went after one hour to discuss...

Another very memorable dinner here in costa brava. Followed trip advisor again and so far they are 2/2. Tonight we went to el galeo in paramos. Excellent tapas with a very cool service style. Almost like a buffet but they charge by the piece. We got there early as everyone on TA had advised. Around 7! But it is a... More

Wide variety of cold tapas that you pick from the bar. Lots of warm tapas that are served at your table all the time. Really good quality food all over, meat, fish and vegetarian. Small place so be early or be patient. But stay long, worthwhile.

Tapas here on a Friday night was one of the highlights of our holiday. A lovely evening sitting outside the bar, watching the world go by (but get there early if you want an outside table). The cold tapas are on the bar and you go and help yourself whilst the hot tapas are brought round. You save your plates... More

Cheap, authentic, quality, taste. The kids would disapprove the rating, but the fondant at the end made their meal :) for me and my wife it was culture, atmosphere and great flavours. It was Spain. We recommend it, also with the kids :)

The food was great and not expensive. Authentic spanish food and atmosphere. We went there and watch the soccer match real madrid - Barcelona (el clasico) which i can really recommend to do so when you are in Spain!! Just cheer for the team where the locals cheer for!

Great Tapas bar with a marvellous festive atmosphere the night we were there. The food was delicious, the wine was cheap and very drinkable, the staff were friendly, professional and took great time to explain the different dishes. Most of the dishes are well presented on the central bar for the customer to pick and choose and then from time... More
