best tapas in Vilanova

They use fresh fish from Vilanova. It's the elegance and the authentic taste of the sea cooking. They have own the restaurant since past century. It's recommended to reserve because every day it's very crowded.

Genil is a restaurant opened in 1971 and it is located in Vilanova i la Geltrú.

All tapas are fantastic and I recommend... More

Another time again in this small restaurant south-spain style where always you can find new specialtys and the waiters team are ready to serve inmediately. This site is always a successful choose for family or friends dinner & lunch.

We visited as a family and they were very helpful. This was recommended to us by a local after our original choice was closed due to a public holiday. A great recommendation. The tapas was excellent and even our 3 year old could not get enough of each dish. Staff are friendly and willing to advise on dishes. We were... More

Great variety of tapas for all tastes. They have a menu for several languages. Many choices. Great service. They time it very well. Service was prompt but not rushed. Few tourists except the ones that hear about it on on TA. Locals know where to eat. At Genil. There was only one thing, I order too many things. Take it... More

A small but nice well managed placed in Vilanova i la Geltru. You will find there one of the nicest places in the area for tapas. Don't forget the recommendations of the waiters. Very interesting.
