A great little place for drinks (sitting on the windowsill) and to eat. Amazingly friendly service from the owner and her colleague with excellent food. The ribs were perfect as was the tuna. The empanadilla de carne should definitely be tried. We ate, we drank,...we laughed. We enjoyed it so much so that we went twice during a short trip.More

Not What it used to be food- or servicevice. Reed the smallprint on the menu. Waited by person who know very little about the food and close to no English.

Just exploring the quaint Old Town area of Tarifa we chanced upon this very inviting little tapas bar so popped in to try it out. Are we glad we did so. Run by a young guy and his wife. He was convivial, spoke good english...and made us welcome immediately. Not a big menu but all very unique dishes. We opted for the Ensalada Verde and the Pollo Fritti & Pan. Both were great and with a couple of coupas of wine and some great company we had a great evening. We only had one night in Tarifa but would certainly recommend this little bar.More

I had dinner twice there and both wine and dishes were delicious. It is tasty but not too strong, and the menu offers enough choice to eat there several days in a row. I loved the music, and how friendly are the owners.

This is a hidden pearl in Tarifa. You can sit inside but also outside in the window :-). The tapas is of superb quality! All we tried was delicious! If you like good food, you have to try Caracola. Try the tuna hamburger, the gamba...ceviche, the tuna paté, the tataki, the greensalad. Well, that’s what we had last night. For sure all the other things will be delicious too! The food is made with love:-). We will come back!More

Absolutely amazing. Was walking down the narrow streets and found this gem .Had the tomatoe salad and truffle omelette as a recommendation by Angel the owner, it was delicious. All the food is fresh from the day. Vegetarian friendly.

Hello! Thanks for your comment but we are sorry to tell you that it must be a mistake, we do not serve paellas, at least for now 😉

Really lovely tapas bar in the back streets. The tuna burger was so tasty and the tortilla de papas was one of the tastiest we’ve had in Spain so far. Definitely recommend

It looks like a bar that serves food. Don't let this fool you. The food was excellent - we had the obligatory mini tuna burgers (amazing), potatoes (excellent sauce), tomatoes salad (brilliant) and honey and Manchego cheese omelette (divine). All served with good wine at...great prices. Go and enjoy watching the world walk by.More

This is one of the best places in Tarifa. If you visit, you must have the mini tuna burger. We may want more after. The home made Toblerone is amazing.
