Their classical tapas are excellent!! The "botifarra 1730" and "Ous trencats amb patates" were splendid.

Great tapas of good Quality and Taste. Interior is nice, large tables compared to other locations, nice counter with cold topas. They have Spanish and English menu. The service is professonal. One of the better places for tapas! One negative point: I would not recommend the fried fish bundle (see photo), this was less good then the rest.

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 😉 but I can... 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.

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

Another time again in this small restaurant south-spain style where always you can find new specialtys and the waiters team are ready to serve inmediately. This site is always a successful choose for family or friends dinner & lunch.

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.
