I had a meal deal for 2 to share 5 tapas and a glass of house wine each. The food was ok, but nothing special and some of it (gambas al pil pil) lacked seasoning. Everything e.g. bread had to be ordered separately. The house wine (I had the Tempranillo) wasn't particularly good. However, the service was good and the staff went about their work smiling, which made a big difference to the experience.

Sat right beneath a TV that played 4 minute loops of the owner's private holiday snaps!

After 20 minutes, you wonder why anyone would do that, after an hour you lose the will to live and then develop an incomprehensible desire to rip the perpetrator to shreds!

Food was just ok but one dish arrived an hour after we had finished eating- the waitress didn't charge us for it but the experience was tarnished.

The owner's greeting on the entrance "65 million people in this country - why me?" should tell you all you need to know about the experience you are about to have!

We sat outside our first night here, and enjoyed traditional tapas, beautifully prepared. Very nice white wine--Spanish beer. The grilled sardines were lovely, potatoes brava highly recommended.

Mixed experience, nice waiting staff but food came in drips and drabs; wife's sardines never came at all; a dish we didn't order came; nearly charged for both; not very good we thought. Has put me off tapas.
