Modern decor of this basement tapas bar belies the tradition and quality of the tapas. We regretted not returning to Bambu the next day.

Decided to go for this place based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Situated underground in a street off of Plaza Mayor. We were there on a Sunday night and it was packed. Mainly Spanish locals/students and consequently the staff were sometimes overwhelmed. They offer 1 wine and tapas from a wide selection for €2.50 or 1 beer and... More

The tapas are delicious and well priced. Great for a bite to eat on a night out with friends. Bambu has always had a great selection of Tapas over a course of many years.

We were recommended this restaurant by the friendly owner of our hotel and were very happy we listened to him. On a very hot evening the air-conditioned basement interior was perfect. Normally I like to sit outside on a terrace and watch the world go by but it was so hot that this was very welcome. The service was friendly,... More

First time I saw Bambu i was a bit weary about going into it as from the outside itdies not look like much. However when you go down the stairs you will be suprised. Bright modern and clean. Tapas are very good waiters friendly. Try the ribs and the pulpo. First time i went with a local woman and then... More

We were recomended by the reception of the hotel to visit this spot to have dinner. Unfortunately it was nothing Special. We've end up in the restaurant Area. The staff was not friendly and the 3 plates we've ordered were Low quality. One too salty, the other one without half of the ingredients and the last one with "old" lettuce.... More

We stumbled across this place having read about it on TripAdvisor. I don't think we would have found it otherwise as it is in a side street down an unprepossessing staircase. But what a modern, bright, white , bustling place it was on a Sunday. We ordered a couple of drinks and chose two fairly small tapas, found a table... More

Great place to start your evening with friends, loving their beer plus free tapa offer! Very good grilled meats. Affordable as well.

We went here both nights of our stay in Salamanca. The first night we just sat at the bar and had a few drinks and really tasty tapas from the selection on show. We went back again to the restaurant part based on reviews. The restaurant was empty but this was OK as the bar was rammed full! We ordered... More
