“Good Tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is a very nice little tapas bar/restaurant with lots of character, being in an old galleried house. The ground floor has around 10 tables in a little courtyard 10 and there is further seating upstairs which looks down on the courtyard. The decor is nice with beautiful tiles and and posters of bullfighters and flamenco dancers. The atmosphere is very busy with local people as well as tourists and the food is very nice. The waitress is extremely busy but had time to recommend dishes. Our only gripe would be that sometimes dishes got forgotten and delayed. But it was a Sunday, very crowded and she was the only one working so we didn't blame her.

“Good choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

We had a delicious meal here- it was noisy, as there was a group of students having a very rowdy time near us, but that wasn't really a problem. Food was really good, and very reasonable- for 6 of us, including beverages, total was ~ $40 US.

“Never got seated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Couldn't get seated because staff ignored line and seated people ahead of us. Very unpleasant. Pity because food looked good.

“Brilliant little bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

What a gem!

Great food, great atmosphere, great bar!
Our first visit was on a Saturday night and the place was packed out ... lots of friendly locals and lots of tourists mixing together.
The Sunday was less intense but every bit as enjoyable ..

Brilliant, go pay them a visit!
