Great local tapas

We have some great tapas there every time we are there.... You should really try the botifarra con salsa de Pedro Jimenez y foie 😉 one of the best tapas where the sweetness of the Jimenez and the saltiness from the sausage is great..... You should remember to get lemon to the calemars a la Romana... read more

Upon arrival we were greeted and the gentleman was great, he gave us the Spanish and English menus (my... More

Very good tapas, and also good price. The ambient it's so good and the staff it's so friendly. I'm not sure they speak English. If you go for lunch during the week, nice menu with good price. If not, you must choose from the Carta, but there's good variety and good prices.

Genil is a restaurant opened in 1971 and it is located in Vilanova i la Geltrú. It is very popular because in the restaurant you can taste a lot of fantastic tapas: the typical tapas of Spain (patatas bravas, roman squid, andalusian squid, selection of cheese, selection of sausages, etc.) and modern tapas. All tapas are fantastic and I recommend... More

They use fresh fish from Vilanova. It's the elegance and the authentic taste of the sea cooking. They have own the restaurant since past century. It's recommended to reserve because every day it's very crowded.

We visited as a family and they were very helpful. This was recommended to us by a local after our original choice was closed due to a public holiday. A great recommendation. The tapas was excellent and even our 3 year old could not get enough of each dish. Staff are friendly and willing to advise on dishes. We were... More

Great variety of tapas for all tastes. They have a menu for several languages. Many choices. Great service. They time it very well. Service was prompt but not rushed. Few tourists except the ones that hear about it on on TA. Locals know where to eat. At Genil. There was only one thing, I order too many things. Take it... More
