We really do recommend this restaurant not only for its excellent, genuine tapas dishes but for the quality of the service and great value-for-money. To get to the terrace, you go round the back to the Plaza Cisneros which is a peaceful backwater off the tourist circuit yet right in the heart of the city by the Cathedral and it is frequented by many locals. In August, we found that the city was quite plagued by over-persistent flies, which takes the edge off al fresco dining but here, large candles containing an insect repellent kept these beasts well away. We paid only 16 euros per person, including wine, water and an aperitif.

Reasonable tapas, hefty portions, lacking in atmosphere, rather scary waitress, uninspiring, wouldn't feel too miffed if it was closed down tomorrow.

What a lucky coincidence that we found this great, quite place! Las Cuevas is NOT a tourist trap. It is highly frequented by locals. The first evening we had only tapas, which were all put together by the restaurant. They were all delicious. The same was true foe the Paellas we had the second evening. It is absolutely great value for price. The wine list is small but of good quality at fair prices. We will definitely go there again.

For a quick bite just order from the outside counter one these great tapas. We recommend the filled sweet red pepper

The food. Yes, the evening went well.We went to a restaurant called Las Cuevas. This is a pure tapas restaurant. We had fava beans and sausage, baby squid sauteed in black leeks, goat cheese and zucchini pastry, curry pork empanadas and potato with paprika and red peppers. Joined by sangria and a bottle of estate wine, this was a perfectly succulent meal.

The best thing to do is let them seat you, order your drinks, then go to the bar. Many of the food is ready to be heated, the rest is 'cooked in the moment,' like the sauteed baby squid. It's almost overwhelming, but make sure you ask for Susana and she'll tell you what each and everything is in good English.

The only complaint was that the Pork Ribs in Andalusian Honey were greasy. Really greasy. But when they saw that we didn't eat them, they asked. I told them and they took it off the ticket. That surprised me.

We'll definitely go back.
