Having lived in Spain for 5 years, my expectations were low. However i was pleasantly surprised. Friendly atmosphere, the chef talked to us at our table and they had fresh local ingredients. I give it 5 stars and will be going there soon.

A young heart with much experience.Goya Tapas Bar was opened in the spring of 2011 and it therefor the newest restaurant in town. We try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible with a low key music and relaxed casual Spanish atmosphere. Our menu: We try our best to offer you a great variety of dishes at a fair price, whether you like a quick snack and a drink or an enjoyable night with your friends. Our entire Tapas menu is in the price range from 5 to 10 Euro but we recommend our mystery menu which is a 7 course Tapas experience with dessert for just 30 Euro.Opening hours The restaurant is open every day from 17.30 P.M.
