This is a great place for excellent vines, olive oils, cheese, ham and (other) tapas. Many of them by local production in pretty high quality. Very kind service personally committed. We and the kids (Teens) live it!

This is not a restaurant and should not be confused with one. It offers very simple tapas of oluves, breads, tomatoes, cold cuts. The chairs are not very comfortable so you will not wish to stay here too long, but service is good.

This was a amazing fresh meal, staff helped us choose the most delicious food! Highlights for me - the bread sausage, cheese and honey tapas and tomato salad! Catered for gluten free with ease ! The green wine was also yummy!

We went to Banca de Pau twice this week. We wanted a small meal in a small venue. This restaurant was three minutes from our hotel and after a busy day site-seeing was the perfect choice. Small, wooden tables and individual benches. Reservations a must...More
