Very nice small dishes and interesting way to have a meal. Very relaxed way to see and select small tapas and small plates of food. Very good quality. Friendly and helpful staff.

We ended up in here while seeking shelter from the rain and what a pleasant surprise. We ordered Gambas Pil Pil and we couldn't help but to be tempted to try some of the delicious tapas being offered to guests by the waitress, you pay per stick. Very cheap and very tasty, I hope to return before the end of... More

Went there 15 mins before closing the kitchen. They didn't say that wouldn't have meant they would have ignored us and cleaned all around us, switched off lights outside and literally kicked us out. If you're closing you don't let customers in, shove something on the table and kick them out. Ordered some pintxos. They shove them on the table... More

Very lively so the almost one year old in our company wasn't too impressed, but the rest of us were very happy with the food and service. The pintxos were presented with just a few minutes between each and the different options seemed endless. We'll definitely come back!

Busy bar just of the playa in Marbella. Lots of different nationalities eating tapas. Plates range from €1.50-€2.50. However there is no menu. Can only chose items from plates that come out of the kitchen and are offered table by table by the waiters. Tasty food but would prefer to order own dishes rather than take pot luck with what...

We came in the middle of the day, this place pretended to work without siesta, however it really looked like kitchen had a siesta. There were not many people, but they were bringing 4-5 tapas per time which was definitely not enough for visitors. The staff wasnt nice too, from the most beginning the behaved like we were unwanted visitors.... More
