We came to this tapas bar following the recommendations we had read about they squid they serve and were disappointed. Squid is good but certainly not the best I’ve tried. Staff is very nice.

Expert in sepia with AliOli, also have more variety in two places near the city council, with big terrace on summer and usually crowded. Recommend to try sepia!

They have great food, personally I'm not a fan of the sepia itself but they've also got great patatas bravas/alioli, chorizo and other bits and pieces. It can get very crowded but the service is fast. :)

I love the sauce and sepia that they make. Probably the best place to eat Sepia. Ideal place to have a couple of beers and a sepia racion.

A must if you visit Valladolid. Many years serving grilled squid with garlic mayonnaise. Other nice tapas such as potatoes with spicy or garlic sauce.

A real introduction to Spanish Tapas. The Sepia and Patatas Ali-Oli was enjoyed surrounded by a vibrant and buzzing atmosphere even on a Monday night. Good food, good atmosphere, and good beer!
