LOCATION Based in the centre of Alicante and not far from the seafront, castle and casino this is an easy location to find. no tables available outside so you can only sit inside which is a relatively small restaurant, however the idea is not for...you to stay around for ages. I can only describe this as the fast food of Tapas. STAFF Friendly and welcoming and speak good English so no issues with ordering what you want. The main waiter was very friendly and used to serving tourists as well as locals, however not sure he rasped the concept of a food allergy. FOOD Cheap and cheerful. I can see from other reviews that people are disappointed with the food, but you pay 1.1 euros a dish so your not going to get gourmet food. The dishes are a mouthful each and you tell the waiter how many dishes and they just bring you out random dishes of food. When the restaurant was busier they started bringing out platters of different dishes and you could pick whihc ones you wanted. I think we had 5 dishes each in the end so only 5.50 for lunch. A small beer was less than a euro so this really is a cheap and cheerful place to eat. The dishes were all pretty tasty, all be it some of the meats were very fatty. Overall I would recommend if you want somewhere quick, easy and cheap to eat at a lower end budget location.More

We visited this quaint restaurant mainly on the recommendation of glowing trip advisor reviews. It feels very homely and traditional and the service from the waitress was good. The wine was also good. Unfortunately the paella which we ordered was extremely salty, to the point...where no other flavours were detectable. As someone who hates wasting food we persevered with the dish, however conceded and couldn’t finish it. Given the other positive reviews on trip advisor maybe this was just a bad night for the cook; however, very disappointed nevertheless!More

It was our first time in Alicante and after doing some research online, this looked like a big must. I’m glad we did it and followed the online reviews cause it ended up being my favourite place in Alicante. If you’re a tapas lover this...is a no-brainer. They have cañas for 0,80 and each tapa for 1,10. The way it works is you sit down, there’s no menu, and just wait for one of the waiters to offer you tapas from a tray. They come really often and each round has a different tapa dish to offer from the one before pretty much .At the end of the meal they count all the blocks and glasses to see how much you have to pay. I went with my boyfriend and as it was a Saturday night it was really busy so we did have to wait around half an hour queuing outside (keep this in mind). Once you’re un though, everything is worth it. Tapas vary from seafood, to chorizo dishes, to pizza, fries, fried cheese, and many many more. I even saw a few sweet tapa options going around (but was already super full)More

Great value tapas! Tasty morsels which came out often. The waiter and barman were funny guys while doing the rounds with the tapas. Good vibe, good value and you walk away full!

The food was ok but the system sucks. The table besides us got 2 tapas every round while we did not get anything for minutes.

With it only costing €1.10 per board with lots of signs in English outside, I was worried this was going to be a tourist trap. However once inside, there were plenty of locals and tourists alike. We were a little impatient (hungry) so we ordered...a few fish and chicken items to go with our Cana (small) beer. Then we saw more variety of items coming from the kitchen, ranging from mini burgers, croquettes and sausages. We also ordered more specific items by pointing at TripAdvisor photos which they were happy to oblige with. Yes nearly everything is deep fried or pan fried but it's freshly cooked so it's hot, crispy and tasty. Service is very quick and efficient (mostly consisting of pointing or saying the numbers of boards or beer you want!). Definitely give this place a try, you won't be disappointed!More

Lovely little place. Cheep n cheerful. Cold beers at your table in an instant. Trays of tasty tapas are brought through the bar every few minutes for your to pick and choose from. We generally pop in on our way back from the beach.

I had been here before but my wife had not. As we were staying in Alicante for the night we decided to pop in here for lunch. Apart from the red wine being chilled everything else was wonderful and terribly good value. We ended up...with 6 tapas, 2 glasses of the chilled red, 2 glasses of white wine and a small bottle of water. Total bill €14.40, outstanding value! Service is great and the waiter carries a tray of freshly cooked tapas and you pick what you want. Each one is €1.10. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Highly recommended and would visit again.More

Don't do bookings. Always popular but especially so in early evening so you may be ok after 9pm. They are open all day. Enjoy your trip.

They ring a bell when they get a tip, the higher the tip the harder they ring the bell! Makes for great atmosphere.
