“Great, in-expensive tapas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Great authentic tapas experience! Try the pork cheeks in chestnut sauce, the chipperones (squid), chorizo and the cava (spanish sparkling).

Cheap and cheerful atmosphere inside, (the TV is always on and it's fluro lighting) though if it's a warm evening get a table outside and enjoy the ambience and stunning views across the mountains.

Highly recommended!

“Pleasant shady terrace in the mornings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Friendly service, perfectly good but bog standard tapas and good chilled Tio Pepe by the glass. Its big plus is that it has super views over the shady side of town up until about 1430 so it is an ideal place for a morning stop or an earlyish lunch.

“Went there again and again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We recently stayed in Gaucin for a week and this lovely tapas bar with great views became our repeat venue. Had tapas with drinks on a number of evenings, a whole evening and breakfast there and were not disappointed once. Great variety of tapas and friendly , hard working staff.

“Great place for breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

We visited for a late breakfast - lots of locals and ordered toast (garlic, oil and tomatoes! Fab) and fried pancakes (amazing puffs of pastry with honey!) well worth a visit.

“Tapas restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Lots for your money, although quality is not uniformly great. Staff very courteous. Some outdoor seating on the veranda, with a good view over the valley.
