We came to this place at 5:30 on a week day a was told to come back at 6pm. We duly did so and found that people were already there drinking and eating tapas. We managed to get a table outside on this hot sunny day which did not detract from the experience and what an experience it was. You had to queue up and they had just run out. It was worth the wait. All the tapas is freshly made and delicious. It was so good we went on Good Friday just before we caught our flight.
In this instance the queue was outside the door about 25 people deep and populated with locals.
A great experience you should not miss.

this is the probably cheapest tapas place you can get. the tapas serving opens at 18:00 and there is 5 of them. before you can have some drinks for a good price again. the only thing didn't go with the place was the tables on the outside. they just ruin the atmosphere.

No wonder you often have to queue to get served here.
A couple of beers and a plate of battered fish pieces and croquettes and you come out with plenty of change out of ten Euros in the heart of the city.

This place is famous for its salt cod, and rightly so. You have to wait in a queue, but they are very efficient and the wait isn't long at all. If you like cod you'll love it here.
