It is almost impossible to find a table but if you dont mind standing at the barra this is an excellent bar with extremely warm and positiv energy staff.All the food we tried there was extremely fresh and delicious taste. The cheese is amazing and all the fish too.

One of my favourite tapas bar in Tarifa! Food was absolutely delicious (esp calamari and tuna ahunmado - MUST HAVES!) The waiters are friendly and the atmosphere is extremely lively! Would recommend 10/10

We ate here a couple of times during our week's holiday, we enjoyed it that much. Get there before 9pm to secure a table more quickly. Worth the wait. Once you get a table the service is very efficient. Food excellent

We went here twice on our hols, as we loved it so much! The tapas is gorgeous, although the portions are huge, so if sharing a couple..have media (half) rations! In particular, the boquerones and the patatas bravas were both extremely good, the Jamon iberico was a good portion, and thinly sliced...and the house red is rather good too!

One of the most iconic tapas bar in Tarifa. Excellent ortiguillas and tuna. Expect about 16€ per person for a tapas lunch or dinner

Back to our favorite tapas bar and is as great as always. Fantastic range and wonderful !oral atmosphere. The best tonight was the raw smoked tuna washed down with a delightful Rioja. Could spend the whole holiday here.

in the middle of the old town of Tarifan in one of the narrow alleys, you'll come across this bar. They serve real good tapas and have a nice range of good spanish wines. Very friendly, trendy terrace.

Some tapas in the evening were just necessary. We were appointed with some friends and met there having some beers and tapas. Additionally we got some Flamenco music from a popular Cameron de isla. What did we want more?!
