This is the tapas (although I guess they're technically pinchos or something) place that I've been looking for all over Spain. A place like I'd read about where you choose which ones you want and save your toothpicks to be charged when you are finished. So easy and so yummy! And a great location too.

Maybe not as famous as other restaurants for pinchos, but for me still the best. I really like the genuine taste of what they prepare, with a nice variety and continuosly bringing new suggestions. Price is not high, they unfortunately do not have sidro, but Sangria is very good and they have good beers too.

Though ideally located on the Plaza de la Reina with a nice façade, it is not worth entering! The pinchos (tapas with a toothpick) are ordinary on bland baguette bread. The prunes were wrapped in bacon that was hard and unappetizing - it was either overcooked or had been sitting around way too long. The service is not particularly friendly. Prices though are reasonable. A place for a quick beer only as there are other delicious tapas nearby!

We were attracted by this restaurant by the nice facade. You can be served tapas at the bar or a la carte on the table. We had starters and mains. Food quality was ordinary but plentiful. The chicken skewers were not sufficiently cooked. Service was not up to standard.

Came on our last day for a light lunch after a morning of sightseeing. Tables and bar needed a wipe down but I guess it adds to the ambience of quick and informal food. There was a huge variety of pinchos on display and the ones we tried were yummy. We sat at the bar but had we more time it would have been nice to sit outside and people watch in the Plaza. Pinchos were 1.2 euros each, they count your sticks at the end for the bill!
