This is a lively bar with a large television which plays Music TV. The service was excellent, and we were given free tapas with every drink we ordered.

The place was recommended by a guy whom we bought some water from. And it's the advice of locals which is always precious. Nice tapas, smiling staff, well, almost non-existing English but you manage to get along :)

Service was great, the waiter selected a wine for me which was lovely! Free Tapas were delicious. Paella for two was more than enough. It's a lovely place with lots of people around. Smokers are outside and if you select a table down the back past the bar, you are not subjected to the fumes from these inconsiderate folk!

I was with friends and the tapas they give you are low quality. I asked for a very good burguer. The service quite busy

The food was expensive but VERY LOW guality - no tasty, no salt. The waiter broth me the worst paella that I have ever eaten - rice with burned beans and carrot. The toilet was in very bad condition as well.

There's nothing not to like about this place! Outside seating, cheap beers and the most delicious free tapas. First tapa was a sandwich mixto (ham and cheese toasted sandwich) with patatas fritas; second was a mix of seafood and cous cous salad; third was croquetas; by the fourth I full! All for free. Granada at its best.

When i am in Granada, the first stop is always this bodega, amazing drinks and good tapas ( more like tapon! Because of the quantity and quality of the products) ask for a drink and await for the amazing free " treat" Amazing staff, always smiling, and keeping our belly full!

Cheaper than many other places in Granada but the quality is really disappointing. Aubergines with honey are still fighting with my stomach while the peppers and the mushrooms came from a jar to my plate. A supermarket will give you the same quality (or higher) with even better prices.
