This place is infamous and you simply must visit if you are in the neighbourhood. Very cheap tapa and excellent beer selection. It is always busy and used extensively by locals and students. You may need to wait for a table as its a small bar but worth it. Tapas were excellent value and typical of this area of Spain.... More

Nice place to be for a moment because is in the street. You have lunch 'tapas' standing up in the street. Delicious 'tapas' of tortilla or endaladilla. Not recommended for being with kids. Very cheap

Straightforward, large tapas for 1 euro. Good beer - everyone goes there, not just students. It feels nice - always busy but no one stays long so turnover is rapid. A La Coruña must-do.

It is famous and typical, but tapas are not good at all. I tried Spanish omelet and calmars, and both were poorly fried. I didn't like them. There are other bars in the same area more inserting.

I am a student in Coruña and I come here all the time with my friend to have tapas and a caña (glass of beer). All the tapas are 1€. My favorites are the tortilla (huge piece), albondigas (Spanish meatballs) and calamares (fried squid rings). All of the tapas are good though. A caña is about 1.7€ which is also... More

We came to this bar thinking to have a beer, and recommended by family. Basically it works like this: u order your drink, and from a wide variety of HUGE tapas, you choose what u want. You can order as many as you want. They are 1€ each. We got a "clara" and one tapa and a half each, and... More

Good tapas and beer. Tortilla is really good. Most of the time is so full that you don't have place to seat. Fast service. 1€ each tapa. Location in the middle of the tapas street.

If you don't have a lot of money and you want to eat something tasty, Bombilla is a place for you! They have tapas and rations and alcohol. The portions are pretty big , so you definitely won't leave this bar hungry. Tapa costs 1€ , so it is really great price and a beer 1,7€ if I remember well.

Popular with tramps and hard up students due to cheap low quality food. Plus Terrible service as well ... avoid at all cost
