nice cozy place, good selection of tapas. You get full quickly (too much bread). very good house wine (Anares). Prices are average (average 1.75 euro per tapas). Definitely a repeat.

small tapas sized portions are brought around each table for you to choose from. Every portion has a different skewer and at the end your skewers are totalled up and charged accrodingly.
Our table had around 24 pintxos and 4 glasses of wine and the bill came to 40 euros.
It is located on quite a busy street which is excellent for sitting outside and watching the world go by.
The staff are all really attentive and teh food is delicious!

This restaurant is very popular with tourists and locals. It provides a genuine Spanish experience. You can choose to pick and choose your tapas dishes as they are brought round the tables by staff, and/or you can order full main courses - ribs, chicken, steak, prawns etc. We chose to order a main course and also try out some of the tapas dishes. But the tapas on their own would have been more than sufficient.

The place is always packed at night and has a great atmosphere. It feels much more 'authentic' than many of the nearby tourist restaurants. I'd highly recommend it for the experience but get there reasonably early (before 8pm) to get a seat.

The staff are very friendly and full of character.

I loved this traditional tapas. It's very hard in Puerto Banus to find decent Spanish food, it's over populated with Italian restaurants! This restaurant is excellent! The whole dining experience is fantastic. There is no menu! The waiters come out with places of fresh hot tapas, all delicious, you eat as many as you want and at the end the number of sticks are counted to calculate your bill. All the food was delicious and great value. Such a lovely atmosphere with locals, not a tourist trap, loved it!

We went on a Monday evening before the rush started around 10pm.

The food is great, the atmosphere (with few tourists) is great and the service is great.

Go here for a long evening of food and drinks.
