One of the very best tapas bars. Excellent fresh food & service. Fine wines, fresh fish and amazing mini ham burgers.

Fresh made tapas. Great local atmosphere. Try also the best Paella in town. If you like football join a day there with a match. We were so lucky to be there when Real Madrid and Barcelona played ☺ top great.

Love this place for lunch. Great, friendly staff. Fresh ingredients and lots of tasty dishes to chose from. Various sitting areas. Beware - portion sizes are huge so if your going for the half racions don't order too many. Also good drinks menu and very reasonably priced

Large tapas restaurant with huge patio in the back that can accommodate large crowd. Huge selection of fish and seafood with excellent grilled meat. Good service with fair price for quality of food.

A number of people told us to eat here so we tried it. No reservations permitted but we didn't eat until late so it was not difficult in October. We sat outside and discussed the menu with the very friendly waiters. We decided on a salad starter and squid deep fried rings which were disappointing ...a little stodgy. Foe the... More
