Tried this place for dinner on the strength of Trip and found the excellent reviews to be thoroughly well deserved.
Trendy modern decor and buzzy atmosphere but definitely quirky. We also love it when you can see the kitchen staff cooking. Our waitress was very helpful and offered to speak Spanish or English, useful as it seems there are always daily specials. You can choose tapas or starter/mains etc. Reasonable selection and everything we had was delicious, interesting and very attractively served. I quite agree that the tuna tempura is to die for! Everything that came out of the kitchen looked great. Great pace too, they were busy but we were never hurried.
Biggest surprise when it came was the bill. We had an excellent bottle of Rueda, 4 tapas, (which was ample for two), more drinks and then coffees and it all came to under 40 euros. Little wonder that the place is so popular. We expect to pay a return visit before the end of our holiday.
P.S. One of their quirks is the blackboard and chalk in the WC for messages!!

Incredible food. Unbelievable combinations in all dishes. I wish I could try all of them, but then I wouldn't be able to go out. And still amazingly low prices for such level of cuisine art. Yes, it is an art!

It is worth to try tapas served by them even if You have to wait for the table or place at the bar. It is always crowdy. Food is served in sophisticated but Simple forms. Everything tasty. Nice atmosphere although waiter named Carmen is trying to spoil it.

We took variety of tapas, which were tasty and original. The place is very small so we had to wait for the table at the bar. The service although was quite poor for a restaurant with such good notes...
