This really is well worth a visit. The restaurant is a huge open air dining space, with gravel on the floor. The service is quick, helpful & cheerful. The tapas is basic, but good quality and cooked to order in the massive (open for all to see) kitchen. A great night out - and a really great atmosphere if you... More

I regularly return because of the terrific atmosphere and good dining experience. A fun night out as always with good honest food in a simple but effective outdoor area. Soak up the ambiance, people watch, and eat some of the finest Tapas around, followed by their famous fresh chicken. Top value for your money here!

This is a hidden gem. We went with some friends who have been before. Not the easiest of places to find but well worth it. Get there early or parking will be difficult. We arrived at 8pm and it was nearly empty. By 9.30 it was nearly full and buzzing. It is for families, friends or larger parties. Its not... More

Padilla is excellent value for what it is - a Merendero - and has no pretences at being anything else !! Service is phenomenally fast, food well cooked and varied and although the prices have gone up recently, 6 of us still walked out full paying under 60€ in total. And you have to love the gravel on the floor... More

Went there for a meal as it was suggested by some friends. We had two servings of tapas (delicious to say the least), 10 drinks and 2 desserts and it didn't even come to 50€. The only thing that I didn't like was the enclosed surroundings, as the restaurant is in the middle of a park.

Huge outdoor eatery. Very reasonable prices. Good basic food. Amazing atmosphere especially around fiesta times. Everything from tapas to a full meal. Often about 20€ for 4or5 people. Don't expect linen tablecloths or napkins and keep your bill as you pay on the way out.

We visited this cafe on the recommendations read on this site, slightly difficult to find due to the railway line on the map! Better to find the plaza de toros and then park and walk though the park, you will hear it before seeing it! The service is good. It the food is everything with e wry thing soaked in... More

This place is very Spanish and if you accept that you will have a great experience in a great atmosphere. My advice to Brits is get there at 8.30 it will be nearly empty, order some food, you don't want to order everything at once,do it the Spanish way a bit at a time, then watch as the place fills...

Was recommended this place by one of the locals, no thrill eatery/canteen. Either self serve or table service the choice of tapa,s was huge, had a veritable feast including drinks and water for less than 15 euro,s great value after paying 36 euros for breakfast at the Parador !
