We were only in the area 4 days and ate here 3 times. Excellent tapas. Free tapas with each drink and you choose more by seeing what is on offer and pointing at your selection. Gambas pil pil were delicious as were all other selections we had over our visits. Would highly recommend.

After finding a lack of good quality food in this area, we were delighted to stumble across Tito Juans. A small, traditional tapas spot using the Andulusian 'la cana' system of a free tapas when ordering a drink or 'cana'. Should you want something a little larger or a particular item you can ask or point(!) but the experience of trying the specials and selections of the house is an interesting way to explore the menu and shouldn't be missed.

Sitting in what was (apparently) once Titos home, the Taberna has been running for years. The bill is an interesting concept, with Tito mentally keeping track of your canas and/or dishes. No mean feat for 30 diners and probably the explanation for our bill being exactly 20E on every visit. Much less than we had expected and as per the menu a significant discount. All part of the friendly, laid back atmosphere at Titos.

the food was good old fashionationed traditional tapas, cooked by Tito and his wife, we tried a few dishes including meatballs, chesse in oil, eggs with padron peppers and Spanish stews. All were delicious and choosen for us by Tito.

Friendly, welcoming and the most authentic feeling Taberna we've eaten at, not at all like a business, more a hobby. Titos Juans is the place to eat in the area.. if you can find it.

A great authentic Tapas bar. Great wine and excellent food.
Our favourite tapas bar in the Carihuela area.
Juan, Annie, Sonya and Paqui will take good care of you.
After 36 years Juan reaps the benefit of his years he has put in and now spends time on our side of the bar.
no music, no T.V. just great conversation.

Thank Ian

Small and intimate is probably being generous, as it is cramped inside, but there are plenty seats outside and in the covered area. The comment about size is not a negative though, as it creates a very authentic Andalucian feel. Lots of home cooking here with stews and pots cooking and being presented.

On purchasing a drink, you will receive a tapa, a sample of the food on offer, or perhaps some quality serrano ham & cheese.

Good prices and offers on wines and sherries. Friendly staff too, always a bonus.
