“Great Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

De Tapa Madre was recommended by our hotel, and it was good we went. Great tapas, good outdoor seating to watch the world go by. Very good and young service, and the papas are not to be missed, all excellent value, and not many tourists. Recommended.

“Lovely food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

One of the few good places open on a Sunday evening. Close to the centre but just off the main tourist trail. Wide selection of very tasty tapas even for a fussy eater like me. Good friendly service from the younger members of staff, although having the bill tossed at you on the table by the older waiter spoilt the end. No manners!

“Good tapas, friendly staff, not that special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Just across the block from our hotel is this restaurant located. Like everywhere you sit outside next to the intersection and like everywhere around the food is local: tapas... But this place is special for its good quality tapas (not very original though), the interior is not too crowded & friendly staff...
