Using Tripadvisor reviews to locate a nearby place brought us here. We wanted to relax while we ate and so the bar person called upstairs so we could go there for a meal. Service was very friendly but I think there must have been a language issue. Judiones de la Granja was suggested as a typical meal of the region... More

Really different experience. Attentive service. Each dish explained in detail. I wanted the tuna as a main course but it had a meat juice. I don't eat meat so they changed that to a soya juice. Good starter of carbon cod. Fritters with squid ink and tomato croquettes flambéd at the table. We couldn't decide between them so they gave... More

We came to this place by mistake and we were more than satisfied. The place (upstairs) is beautiful and the service is rather professional and kind. I'd say it's a nice gastronomicish restaurant. The quality and inventiveness of the food is remarquable and the prices can definitely beat any other restaurant around. We had the five course menu and don't... More

My wife and I popped in around 10pm, when it was easy to find a table. The hirsute barmen we friendly, and their hipster demeanor indicated their cocktails would be something special. We perused the cocktail board, which listed classic cocktails and their ingredients attributed to their hometowns and year of invention. Included in the list were a number of... More

I appreciated the surprises that come with te tapas you order, textures, mix of flavours, etc Good service, and you can feel the place didn't lose the spirit of a "food house". Let yourself be recommended by the staff and you'll be in good hands.

Super cocktails made and presented with care and attention to detail. Very smartly dressed bar staff only to pleased to help with taxi arrangements. We didn't eat here but wished that we had if the drinks are anything to go by. Wonderful!!!

The place is brimming with ambience right down to the smartly dresses serving staff who look like they came out of Chicago speak easy. We focused on their cocktails and tapas as we sat downstairs and not in the restaurant but it was excellent. Cocktails aren't cheap but they are works of art and they know their game -- and... More

Having had a substantial meal at lunch, we were looking for some tapas on a Monday night. When a recommended place nearby turned out to be closed, we called El Bolero and were told a reservation wasn't necessary at that time (8:30), but they'd hold a table for us. They had nice outdoor dining on a balmy October night, but... More

Very fancy food and perhaps too rich but fascinating and fun. Having been unable to get into the restaurant that we had researched we decided to try this one and we were not disappointed. Cocktails to start followed by too much food. Great wine - I love it when you ask for a recommendation of a local wine and it... More

Try their "tapas de abajo": I suggest Carbon de Bacalao, Tosta de Guacamelva and Tortilla Sorda de Sacromonte. They're exquisite! Table service is quite slow, but take your time to enjoy the food. And a copa of red wine.

Thank Luca T
