“Recommended for tapas lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

A small, often packed, but still cozy restaurant serving a large variety of tapas. We ordered a handful to share and most of them were very good.

“Great tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Innovative and well prepared tapas.
I´ve tried both hot and cold foie gras and both of them were impressive.
Oxtail was really superb.

“The best Tapas I've had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Not much more to add from other reviews. The restaurant doesn't look very special from the facade but the food is amazing.

“Wonderful Change of Pace From the Traditional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

I love traditional Spanish cuisine. Suckling pig and lamb, boquerones (marinated anchovy fillets), albondigas, thin slices of Ibeico ham. Some places are good, some are great but most are much the same after a while.

Vineria San Telmo is a true standout in two regards.

First, the food is inspired. Using the best traditional ingredients, the chef prepares them with a delicate touch and a flair for the creative. The couscous was delicately seasoned with cinnamon and mint, the leg of lamb was tender and perfectly seasoned. The pork tenderloin on pumpkin was fantastic. All around terrific food with a Spanish/North African fusion vibe that made it truly interesting and unique.

Second, the wine list or should I say tome? Really a complete representation of Spain;s great wines. I found many familiar favorites like Numanthia, Torre Muga, etc. Our waiter was quite knowledgable about the wines. I told him I really liked the Granaches from the Campo de Borgia Denominacion de Origen and he suggested a bottle of the Fagus Coto de Hayas which was just fantastic...exactly what I was looking for.

He was also quite knowledgable about the food, describing the ingredients and process with such pride and in such detail I thought he might be an owner. No he said with a smile, just a waiter. The staff is young and hip and enthusiastic. This place is a foodies paradise!

Pricing was comparable with any of the standard Spanish fare joints in the neighborhood. Sumptuous portions, out waiter helpfully steered us toward the medio or racion size rather than the platos.

“Gourmet tapas like no others!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Happily stumbled upon this tapas bar and were amazed by the quality and quantity of the food and service. They have English-language menus, which was a real treat here given all the gourmet options. The tapas were traditional, but with a gourmet/nuevo twist. Even the "small" portions (typically 2-4Euros) were very substantial. Everything we tried was very good. Our waiter was friendly, helpful, and efficient, and also spoke every good English.

We tried several other tapas bars in the tourist areas around the Cathedral and Barrio Santa Cruz, and while they were OK, the portions were small, the food was very basic, and it was expensive. You won't find that disappointment here. This place is only an 8min walk from the Cathedral and highly worth the walk!
