What a place for tapas. It was recommended by the concierge at the Gran Melia Colon and I wasn't sure what to expect. However this is a proper locals' place. The staff don't speak English and they're not interested in tourists. Perfect!
Find a seat and order at the bar. I recommend getting a couple of drinks and watching what comes out of the kitchen and then pointing and saying "give me that one". We had about 5 tapas each including bacalao pil-pil, fish albondigas, bacalao croquettes, and two rounds of ham and cheese croquettes. The house wine is superb; no need to order fine wine here.
If you are eating in the evening get there after 10pm and take your time; just like the locals.
Oh yeah, it's cheap as chips as well.

This place was recommended by our hotel manager and he said he eats there himself. We were not disappointed. It was great, the staff and I worked through my lack of Spanish to end up with some great tortilla, selection of fried small fish and lamb skewers that came with a tasty middle eastern influenced dipping sauce.

The tapas were pretty good with a fairly wide variety available Prices are fair. Atmosphere is great. Getting a seat was a challenge but popularity (especially by the locals) is a good sign that you will enjoy it.

Three years ago we stumbled by accident upon this bodega and came back when we were in the area the next two years. This says enough. Great tapas, great atmosphere. This time around we were actually surprised we were so close to the center. Seems the previous years we made detours. This time we happened to be walking straight to it and it appeared to be only 5 minutes from the big shopping streets.

This felt like areal tapas bar, with ordering at the bar and be aware they tell out ur food when it's ready and you have to pick it up from the bar.

The baked hake and prawns in garlic was really good, but the rest of the food we tried was average.

We've definitely had better tapas from other places, so wouldn't return here to be honest. The food at Al Aljibe was much better although a little bit more expensive, but def worth it
