We were coming to the end of two weeks in Spain travelling with two German friends. The restaurant we had originally decided on was closed and on walking back to our hotel we 'stumbled' on Al Aljibe, we went into the inner courtyard and were told we would need to wait for 20-30 minutes before it actually opened, we were soon followed by several other couples and by the time it was open the only seats available were outside on the pavement. We all felt this was a good indication of the place and we were not disappointed! We had a selection of Tapas- Spanish with an 'Asian Fusion', a totally enjoyable evening, I would highly recommend Al Aljibe, but get there before 8pm!

Wonderful tapas - a great variety of flavours and beautifully done. Very good value and friendly service and a good spot to watch the world go by. Definitely recommend this to all.

Delicious tapas: sardines, risotto, and a beef tapa and 4 drinks for
20 Euros. There are lots of hip places to chose from on the Alameda de Hercules Square, so don't fill up. Keep moving around and eating!! The atmosphere at this
Particular restaurant would be nicer inside, but we don't speak Spanish so we just took the spot out front.

This restaurant has traditional Spanish food with a modern twist. There is a good selection of reasonably priced tapa and raciones. The food is excellent quality, the wine is good and all reasonably priced.
Although we arrived very late in the evening, the waiting staff were attentive and friendly.
My partner raved about the marinated sardines. I only wish that we had found it sooner. Definitely recommend.

Came across this place while strolling around Hercules Square, two very different venues, downstairs and outside great cheap small tapas dishes, great variety, upstairs and out on a lovely terrace they serve larger portions of the same great menu, marinated sardines on toast excellent, as was the chocolate fondant for dessert. A little bit away from the city centre but definitely worth a look and again tremendous value.
