After googling for "tapas estepona" and cross-referencing those hits with Tripadvisor we ended up at this hole in the wall. The exterior was non-impressive, and since they were not open until about 1930 while we got there around 1830 we walked around in what seems to be the old town of sorts and even though my wife found other places that looked o-so-cozy I finally managed to persuade her to succumb to the power of the TripAdvisors.

I never had a more happy wife than after eating here.

What we found was a place that obviously has old history, old waiters, old menus and old clientele. This amounts to being a place that knows what it's doing, and does it bloody well. The tapas dishes was not in any way flamboyantly presented, and there was an abundance of pommes frites, but holy flying spaghetti monster the tapas dishes were good! If we need to recommend something specifically the champignon mushrooms were perfect with tasty tasty garnish and the chicken wings were out of this world. Most of what we ordered were as a matter of fact chicken wings. We left with a full stomach on a total bill of 22 EUR for two adults, one four-year-old having digested four soft drinks and one glass of wine and tapas dishes. Very good value for the money indeed.

None of the waiters spoke english any good, but the lady in the kitchen spoke some, and the handwritten menus had translations in them so you'll manage. The waiters were very very friendly and loved our daughter, so we tipped generously (we hope).  A brilliant experience all around.
