This was an excellent restaurant with great value for money BUT stunning tapas. The selection of the tapas menu was excellent from local delicacies to regional specialities. We ordered the local tortilla which was creamy inside and the potatoes with gambas - both were really...tasty. This was followed by the House salad ( magnificent with goats cheese) and the pork steak - well cooked and flavoured. We also had four glasses of white wine - all of this for 44Euros but we also watched the amazing food that came by...brilliant small tapas... Excellent food, service and quality - we will be back!More

Dinner at hotel restaurant downstairs twice. 2 Alhambra Reserva Cerveza, and 2 Venta del Puerto 18 glasses of red wine, 3 Euros each for the wine and for each beer. Tapas Blue fin tuna and truffle toast 4 Euros, delicious. Tapas Whim of the XIX...Century 3 Euros, not my wife's favorite, but ok. 19.50 Euros. Night two we ordered t he same beverages, the Blue Fin Tuna with Truffle toast for 4 Euros, and also got 2 Mini Beef Burgers for 3 each. They were just ok, kind of bland without a sauce. David the waiter was super nice, but not the most attentive. Still, we loved this place, and David was a good guy. Ambience and total experience is a 5.More

Great food, beautiful place, even better service. We had a great lunch here, no place outdoors so we had lunch inside in a beautiful not warm room. All dishes: calamares, croquetas. Chuletas, pulpo, several types of atún... were great and also tried a couple of...good white wines. Just as improvement the tunable too much salt. Service was always there when we needed them and dishes came very fast. Really recommend it!More

Amazing Dinner. We walked in and were lucky enough to get a table. The food was amazing with good sized portions. The octopus and calamari was absolutely fabulous. Tender and juicy. The chateaubriand was huge and very tasty and tender. Wine selection was also great...and not too overpriced. Very lovely experience. Will def visit again.More

Lovely tapas, we had pork cheeks, pork in tomatoes, croquets, meatballs, goats cheese toast just to name a few. They were all great. We asked for a Rose Wine and received a bottle of Muga Rioja which was really good. Desserts were fantastic. Coffee and...a good G&T to finish. The staff were very friendly and enjoyed our attempts at ordering in Spanish. A great place to visit in Tarifa. Would recommend.More

First night in Tarifa and was looking forward to some Tapas. Sadly was not impressed by the food. The giant croquette was not giant, more like average size. It was too salty, and it was friend in burnt/dirty oil. We received the wrong potato dish,...although it was ok. The other dishes tasted good but were strange and not in the amazingly unique kind of way. However, now I’m thinking that maybe we received something else incorrect because at least one other dish did not appear how described...hmmm. Service was just ok. Friendly staff but we had four different people look after us at some point so it was a bit confusing. Maybe that’s just how it works there?More
