Had spotted this on Tripadvisor and were delighted to have done so. A real highlight of our 4 night trip, we went twice. A simple traditional Spanish setting, the delightful manager was very helpful in suggesting a few dishes when we asked him to - but everything was scrumptious and, visually, beautiful. The food is served to you at your table, not all at once (to us not the way tapas is usually served ie from the bar, self service style) Easily the best tapas we have ever eaten - and fantastic value, as was the wine there. I think 'el Pou' means 'the well', there is one at the back of the restaurant! Would love to return....

Went here again last night after discovering it last year and it did not disappoint again. We had noticed a picture on the wall of a dish and saw it being brought out to a table so enquired what it was, surprisingly it was the patatas bravas but none like I had ever seen before and wow what a flavour, they were melt in the mouth good, the other dishes we tried were also fantastic, even the waiter had massively improved this year, highly recommended

This is an amazing restaurant with very talented chefs. It is a tapas menu with a difference. The food is beautifully cooked and beautifully presented. Being a veggie meant there wasn't too much choice but their version of patatas bravas was amazing.

We visited El Pou for dinner as a family with two teens. We were lucky to have a reservation, as the place was full, and people trying to get in constantly without a reservation. The place was tiny, the service and food excellent. The waiter guided us through the menu, and recommended the set of tapas to be tasted. Tapas plates arrovid in quick manner plate after another, and in the end we ordered another round of the ones we liked the most. Can easily recommend, but please make a reservation.

Modern interpretation of traditional Spanish tapas - that is what this great little restaurant is all about. All the dishes were beautifully presented, and many of them are modern versions of traditional tapas dishes. The best dish I had there during my recent trip was their Jamon Iberico bellota - the best jamon iberico I have ever had - it just melted in my mouth.
I also really liked the fried potato dish - little piece of potato wrapped around aioli sauce. I also highly recommend their foie gras, as well as a dish that consists of little strips of beef steak.
In summary, this is the place to go if you want to sample modern Spanish tapas.
