Little hole in the wall place. Seemed to be many locals. We had the sliced ham (jamon) and Papas mojo. Mostly I like the pub type atmosphere and the people watching. It's just two guys - one is the waiter and cook, the other is...More

We really enjoyed this place. It was as a small little gem and it felt very genuine. The food tasted very well and prices were good.

I have never written a review on Trip Advisor until now! The service was awful! Took us at least 15 minutes to order a drink. I ordered a Sangria, that was not good, and my husbands beer was okay. The food was even worse. I...More

Babia is a cosy small place, where locals eat. The food is very tasty and yet simple. The owner and his help are friendly, speak a little English and make you feel welcomed. We even got some olives on the house, while waiting for the...More

Go early, and go hungry. The space is tiny, and their fryer wasn't working during our trip so there were some dishes from the menu that were unavailable. No matter, the menu offers enough variety, and every single thing that we ordered exceeded our expectations....More
