A very extensive menu, focusing predominately on seafood. At the bar, they offer prawns, sardines and other fish at market prices, sold by weight. A great place to try the traditional Seville style fried fish. The prawns were fresh and delicious. The shrimp meatballs came in a savory sauce with slices of blanched potatoes.

The paella was salty, as was a rack of ribs that were rather difficult to finish. The atmosphere, however, is the main selling point of this restaurant. If you're lucky, you can forge a tiny gap at the bar. Orders are being shouter across the bar to the bartenders, you're elbow to elbow with other patrons. There's quite a cacophony between the empty beer glasses being slammed at the bar, constant clinking of plates on plates, the teasing between bartender and patrons and the endless Spanish chattering all around. The food, mediocore but the experience - priceless!

This place was recommended by our b&b owners and we had our best meal here! the paella was excellent - you can't order it. You just wait for the staff to ring the bell and shout paella then you go up the the counter to get a plate of paella! If you miss it, just wait for the next round of paella. The staff were fun and friendly and the place had a wonderful atmosphere. I guess good food makes everyone happy :)

P/s: They open at 12.30 for lunch.

Really good tapas- spescially the potato salad, bacalao viuda (?) And the pork with spicy sauce. It is self service, you order at the bar. Efficient! Messy outside seating- but it was a busy night. Come early to get a table.
