Around 10 p.m. in the evening we noticed this local BAR, not at all chic and we said to ourselves that we were going to have a drink on the terrace. I asked the waiter for the card, to which he replied that he did...not have a card and that he had to simply choose between wine, sangria, beer or whiskey. We figured it was a small local bar and didn't bother with the price by ordering a glass of wine and sangria. To end up with a € 9 ticket. 4 euros for the glass of white wine folded to 1/6 of the glass and a simple sangria. At the end of the drink I noticed a diluted pill at the bottom of the glass of sangria. I thought it was a misunderstanding at first, but then I had the worst nightmares of my life. Avoid this establishment with certainty if you do not want to get drugged.More

My friend and I ordered what was supposed to be a seafood platter which was on the menu for 22 euros. What we got was a flavourless Paella that cost 30 euros. This is not a high-end restaurant, nor does it pretend to be. and...one might be excused for assuming that the prices would match the general standard of the place. The standard, by the way, is Bog-standard. I've eaten at much nicer places and ordered Paella for half that price. It was bland, even the seafood wasn't great. As for the restaurant itself, they had a television blasting out the most awful TV show with people shouting over each other. I had to put my fingers in my ears to try to block it out. Lastly, they make zero effort to keep people from coming in who have no business being in there – one of them, a homeless man, who proceeded to beg at our table and even ask if he could have some of our food while we were trying to relax and have dinner. I often don't mind helping someone out when but if I am sat down to eat, then hell no. I am giving it 2 stars and that's only because we did actually eat something. the basis that we ate somethingMore

Walked past this bar with a few colleagues and decided to check it out because it looked cosy and nice. Looking at the menu made me the most confused as there are several different prices on each menu and the process of cross referencing several...menus did not help at all. Having ordered the salad, seeing it arrive and tasting it was a traumatic experience in itself. The salad clearly wasn’t washed and to top it off they only gave what I presumed to be oil as a dressing. Not sure how they managed to mess up a salad but they managed to lower my expectations even more so. The price of the salad without any dressing was €7.50 - massive rip off! The service was poor and we waiting at least 15mins for the waiter to come by so we could ask for the bill as he was smoking right in front of us. The only positive was the music and ironically the song ‘A Thousand Miles’ was playing as we were waiting for the bill - the only thing on my mind was to be a thousand miles away. I would not recommend this to anyone, only if you want to be disappointed further.More

Ordered the calamari unsure of the price because it’s been written over like 3 times and it’s different in all menus from €7 to €9.80. Didn’t order anything else because it was expensive - when it came I was shocked it tasted and felt of...rubber. The amount of salt used could knock out a cow. The man smoked throughout leaving me and my colleagues waiting for the bill staring at the half eaten disgusting food to be taken away.More

We wanted to try tapas and sangria but we paid way too much money for them. The food was not good and expensive. It was not a good choice to have dinner there...

We entered just before lunch time and had a beer and some pimientos al patron to share. It was great, service was very friendly and the place made me feel as if I was visiting some old relative. It is very simple but cousy. It's...so good and not expensive, great for a place to be in the main street. Recommend it 100%More

Food was ok. We had mainly burgers, frankfurters etc. Drinks were reasonably priced. Found the staff to be attentive and accommodating. A nice place to visit whilst shopping at the nearby shopping centre.

We stopped here for a quick bite on a Monday afternoon. The tapas portions were very generous and prices were very reasonable. Very friendly and attentive service You can sit inside or on the sidewalk, which was great for people watching.
