“Good fun and real tapas”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great service and freshly cooked food. Wonderful variety of seafood. Waiters will help you choose a range of dishes and wines to match at reasonable prices. All the locals seem to go here and is has quite a buzz in the evening. Walls are covered with pictures of bullfights and past matadors. Almost a real 'Spanish' experience!

“Great tapas!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great tapas from Sanlucar. There are many display cases of tapas, so if you cannot read spanish, you can at least point! It was busy and buzzing with people, but note that it is a self service restaurant. You order and get your food yourself, the waiters there simply clear the tables and give you your food. The sign that says this is hard to spot at first, so it can be hard to miss (there are lots of things to look at!)

The tapas were cheap, tasty, and food came out fast. We enjoyed ourselves so much we came twice!

“Good Tapas”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This restaurant is situated on the main square of Sanlucar de Barrameda. The atmosphere is friendly and the service was good. We all seemed to enjoy the tapas and we ate at this restaurant many times. It is a good place, being central to meet people and fill the vibrancy of the town. Really enjoyed the evenings.

“Wide selection of good tapas, beautiful bar”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Balbino offers a high-end experience at a very good price. There's lots to choose from, and even a menu in English. Tapas are very good and arrive quickly. We ended up going two nights in a row just becuase it was so good.
