Ate here twice. Was a very short walk from the Marriott resort in which we stayed. Both times, we tried different foods and enjoyed them all. Staff was very pleasant and helpful to explain the menu items. Sat on the patio in front and enjoyed watching the city life walk by while we ate. Can be a slightly pricey but well worth it.

Bar Gitano is located almost across the street from our hotel, the Marriott Stellaris in Condado, and we went there our first night because we were tired from the trip and didn't want to go far. It was a beautiful night so we decided to wait for a table outside, rather than be seated right away inside. Bar Gitano features Spanish tapas and we loved everything we ordered including a charcuterie board and fish tacos (the best we've ever had). We sat outside and met a group of very friendly young people who were celebrating the Barcelona/Madrid soccer match. Most of them worked in the hospitality industry and they gave us lots of recommendations on where to eat and what to do...so welcoming. Shout out to Onyx, who works at Bar Gitano and was truly exceptional. There’s a flamenco music and dancing on Sunday and Thursday nights inside the restaurant and, while we were seated outside, we did have a good view and it was wonderful.

Located in Condado, Bar Gitano is a small, intimate place with low light and great service. We had a couple of tapas, which were delicious as was the sangria, but the paella was the highlight. It had the perfect crust on top. What else can you ask for. Price is average for the area. We can't wait to go back.

We went here on our first night as it was close to our hotel. The staff was friendly. We sat outside which was nice as it was fun to people watch. We had a few drinks- mojitos were great! and we ate the flat bread pizza.

We chose this restaurant on a whim, because it was across the street from our hotel. Though they offer a full menu, we opted to share a few of the appetizers. The most unusual for me was the grilled octopus. Good flavor, a bit chewy, and the suction cups took some getting used to. I preferred the jerk chicken kabobs. We tried the mojitos here as well, and they were perfect!
