This restaurant is the real deal in terms of value, quality, service and authenticity. My first experience of a waiter suggesting that we were over ordering and he was so right as the portions are very generous. Also another sign that it's not all about...More

This place is less touristy than most of the others in town and always crackles with atmosphere. We were put off going in a few years ago as it is very bright and they have televisions on the wall but it is typically Spanish. Lots...More

This Tapas Bar is very typically Spanish, busy, brightly lit and noisy! Thats the way the Spanish like them. So you need to be expecting that when you go rather than a Tapas Bar targetted for Tourists. The mainly Fish Tapas taste great. A very...More

When you love fish in all its forms and tastes, in a very nice and easygoing atmosphere for a reasonable price, be brave and go to El Pulguilla. The brave has everything to do with the waiting time, but it's worth it (we had to...More

We couldn't keep away! The fried fish was delicious, and the place is run like precision clockwork - it's truly impressive to see so many customers dealt with so efficiently and charmingly.

Almost canteen style, very Spanish place. Fresh seafood. Open kitchen and lots of bustling staff. Great value, fairly basic terrace but the food is everything. The bar is very popular, push through to get to the back. Fine for families.

Not a lot I can add to what has been said in other reviews. Fantastic seafood tapas, great athmosphere, authentic, and filled with locals. Ridiculously cheap. 2 small beers and tapas for less than 4 euro. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Not sure but I would say no. As previous answer I’m sure the outside terrace would be ok.

Hi Debby. I would say yes you were overcharged as tapas are free as long as you are in the front bar and the drink is not that expensive. I would disagree that you were ripped off, I would say they made a genuine mistake. I... More

Most of the tapas are seafood. The clams and mussels are steamed and should not have gluten, nor should the chorizo. Much of the seafood, however, may very well have gluten. You can ask what items are cooked in flour... More
