“Amazing variety of tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

A MUST when in this area............
A truly mind blowing assortment of tapas ,sea food being our personal favourite but all food offered of great quality and a venue that is always VERY busy(a good sign when choosing somewhere to eat,)everything in glass fronted storage area so easy to see what you fancy without having to guess just how it will look when you get it in front of you Bar area invaded by 50 or 60 delcious serrano hams haning from the ceilling...Special mention must be made of the TORTITAS DE CAMARONES........Small flat deep fried portions of tiny prawn filled batter,crispy and absolute food heaven when accompanied by an ice cold beer!!!!!!!!!!
You wont regret your visit,

“Best seafood tapas ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

This place is a Sanlúcar institution and it's easy to see why. No-nonsense waiters wait at the bar for your order and speedily deliver it within a few minutes. Seafood tapas here are out of this world - try the Sanlúcar Langostinos (a kind of king prawn considered amongst the world's best) a la plancha. The 'gambas al ajillo' are also delicious with a touch of chilli and manzanilla, as are the croquetas de marisco. Wash it down with a glass of 'manzanilla pasada' and you are set.
