“tapas como toca!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Amazing little bar ! cheap big tapas and small ones for free ordering any drink! Staff were frienldy all the time. I really enjoyed my friends dinner over there. Try Gazpacho andaluz is a cold soup drink made of cucumber,tomato,vinegar,olive oil and garlic. Must be served cold and is very healthy! typical drink from south of Spain.
Great spanish cuisine!

“Great ambiance. A small refuge in a tourist city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

IS the food artisinal and delicious? Not really. Is it honest, cheap, fast, and satisfying? Yep.

The vibe here is great. And for two sizeable tapas and two beers, served instantly with no B/S, 4 Euros is pretty damn good.

“Great local hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I had found this place mentioned on a few Spanish blogs so I figured we couldnt go wrong. This was a great local spot- we were definitely one of the few foreigners in there and it was packed so we had to fight our way to the counter. We shared the jamon asado (since that's their specialty) and the ribs. Both solid choices washed down with a caña!

“Best Tapas bar in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Like the previous poster we went here on the advice of the hostel staff. Amazing fod, wine was very cheap too.
Lively atmosphere and a real buzzing place. What is good is that you can eat at the bar, you don't need to sit down
A busy tapas bar is a good tapas bar, never enter an empty one!
