“A great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

nice setting and great food, super cheap. the best tapas in this town, by far. A must. They change the menu every week, and a 1/3l. of beer is only 1.30€!

“Very friendly bar in a stunning location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

It may take a few attempts to pronounce El Tapir Despistado correctly but the location of this bar is breathtaking - right at the back of Olvera's iconic church and castle with pleasing views of the surrounding hills and countryside. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating and the tapas are quite adventurous and not the sort you would normally expect. There is free wifi and you can enjoy the experience both inside and out in the small patio area. One big advantage of this place is that it attracts all nationalities and such is its cosy and intimate nature, you will end up speaking to virtually everyone in there!
