We were a group and had a selection of various tapas. There was a good choice and the dishes were well prepared. Price reasonable too.

I love this cafe and La Terrassa, its outside seating area! I've come back to eat both inside and outside. Usually, the inside is not busy, so you can grab the beautiful table right in the front window and people watch. Outside or inside, you have a splendid view of Plaza Antonio Lopez and the breathtaking old "Correos y Telegrafos"... More

Had a light evening meal here. Waiters were nice and a good red wine. The food arrived in a few minutes. The mussels were okay if not hot enough but the omelette was undercooked. Would I go here again - possible but only for a drink

Great location with a smashing outside area. Tasty tapas, especially the fried egg and sausage (the potatoes underneath were especially good..!!). Beer was nice and cold and the service was good - would return.

After a long walk around the harbour, we settled for this place to assuage severe stomach rumbles. We had grilled octopus, a delice. A bit too well done, IMO, but still a great dish. Well served if not at the speed of light, splendidly seating outside with view of the harbour and of the Correus palace... Normal prices too, for... More

Great location but frozen food that wasn't quite warm enough. Gross salad with mayonnaise-heavy dressing.

I ate breakfast here. It wasn't bad but it wasn't terrible. The place looks clean and tidy. Nice outside area. The staff were fine. Not overly friendly bit not rude. The breakfast was fine. Bacon was a little cold. The were only 2 small slices of toast. Not enough for your eggs. And the Pancakes were clearly a pre made... More
