Called in for a couple of drinks after an afternoon sightseeing. Staff appeared smiley and welcoming, a few people ordering food so the kitchen was busy. We ordered our second drink and part way through it decided to give up our table and go outside...More

After visiting the cathedral, we had tapas here. The white wine that they served was refreshing, and was a typical wine of the area. We had octopus (pulpo) which was good. The rest was just alright. We found our meal here to be quite good....More

Santiago is very touristy and you can really get taken at restaurants if you are not careful. Bar Charra is not a trap. It is a great little place with one waiter running around and the cooks really working hard. Food is delicious, prices are...More
