Sorry for late respons. This restaurant is right across the mini golf. On the other side of the road. You have to walk past the store “Micha”, into an “alley”. Just check Google Maps and you will find it. I hope this helps!!

Close for holidays 09/12 to 22/12 incl. What is “going to tapas”? “Going to tapas” has nothing to do with the size of your dish, it has to do with what is in your dish and how you eat it. “Going to tapas” means sharing; slow food; not eating everything at the same time and having different drinks depending on what is your tapa… …And that is what we are offering, the ultimate tapas experience… You will discover the real Spanish way of eating, new wines from the island and the peninsula and different tastes of food that you will never get at home...and do not forget, now you are entering a Spanish way of life, we want you to laugh, talk loud and have a lot of fun…with your shirt on!!! WELCOME!!!
