“Hot Tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Got there just in time to grab two stools at the counter. While looking at the interesting array of tapas in the counter cases a waiter came by with hot meatballs, grab it. Then a waitress with stuffed mushrooms, grab it. Then another waitress with another hot tapas, and another and another. Stop it!
The bar and all its table were now full with local and tourists, the elderly on sticks and babies in push-chairs.
What a great place, by far the best of all the tapas bars in Ibiza town.
The kitchen kept working flat out for a couple of hours producing a steady flow of new hot trears.

Don't miss it but be there by 8pm if you want to get a seat.

“great place-loads of tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We were in Eivissa in April, we went twice to El Zaguan. We liked it a lot. Do come early (before 8:30) if you don't want to wait, otherwise it's fun and most of the tapas are good. We were ok with the price and did not find it expensive. We wished to taste their desserts but we were never hungry enough after all the good pintxos we had ! enjoy ! the cerveza is good tambien. :-)

“Great place - highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I probably ate here more than any other restaurant while in Ibiza. I always felt very welcome and used prop myself up by the bar, and wait for the pintxos to arrive fresh from the kitchen. It pays to be patient and not grab the first few pintxos you see!

Prices are very reasonable, staff are extremely warm, and it's always packed with locals. Highly highly recommended.
