“Typically Spanish tapas and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We were in Murcia looking for lunch and avoided the several tourist cafeterias in the square next to the cathedral and only had to walk into a side street to find this traditionally authentic Spanish tapas bar (established 1926).

The decor is rustic. There is a bar next to the entrance and tables further into the restaurant. We were given menus in both Spanish and English. A novel twist is that you are given an order form which you complete with a pen (also given).

We chose a selection of excellent tapas and other small dishes and an excellent bottle of Ribera del Duero Crianza red wine €22. The whole bill came to €27 for 2 people and would have been so much lower had we chosen the hosue wine or simply wine by the glass.

Service was friendly and helpful.

“Nice option in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice place for tapas in Murcia.
They give you a piece of paper where you write down what you want based on a general menu. Kind of cool.
Food quality is pretty good and the atmosphere is great. This place was open in early 1900's.
Service is average. Not very professional but friendly.
Oh, restrooms are pretty dirty.

“Impossible to miss while in Murcia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The BEST tapas bar in town, full of history, tradition and that impossible to grasp atmosphere.

Go there before 13:00 any day, ask for some MARINERAS with a nice beer (Murcia´s choice will be Estrella de Levante, of course) and some PULPO, and dive into Murcia´s amazing History of Moors, Catholics, Huertanos,and the like with gusto.

Then walk on to the Cathedral of Murcia,and you will understand why Murcianos do not really pay such attention to tourists...they just indulge into their love for classy lifestyle.
