I booked online and wanted a table at 7.30 but was told 8. I found out later that's because they don't open until 8. The owner was a little grumpy but our waiter was an amateur comedian. We chose tapas and I can't actually remember if there were large portions available. We shared jabugo ham, mushrooms in Roquefort, dates in... More

The food in itself was OK, nothing more nothing less, but for 16 eur, 10 prawns is not OK!! (10 prawns with a lemonslice, thats it) I hade to go to another restaurant to eat to get full. The service was not OK and the atmosphere was stressing and loud. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This restaurant was a very pleasant experience to visit. The interior was beautiful and old but kept in good shape. The staff was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable and happy.

Haven't been to La Boveda for a couple of years and were a bit surprised by some of the reviews. However decided to go back this year and really glad we did. The tapas were hot, fresh, tasty, good portions, served with humour by many of the same waiters who have been here for years. It is rustic, noisy, busy... More

Book or be disappointed and be prepared to wait even though you book. Packed bar and restaurant with buzzing atmosphere with machine gun service from the 200mph waiters, all good fun. Food good, but basic rustic fare, not wholly convinced how much real " chef cooking" goes and the prices are high for what is a sausage in wine and... More

There are places, that it takes a second to feel the quality even before you touched the food. This is how it is at La Boveda! You see the smile on the face of people, their joy, later when you eat, you know why!

A very classical tavern with the typical stone coves and solid food. We had great solomillo, outstanding bonito in tomato salsa and other good things such as Chorizo, Pulpo a la Gallega and many different desserts. It is very crowdy and loud but good fun with friends - maybe not for a silent and romantic tete-a-tete. Would go there again!
