“When the place is packed, the waiters are busy!!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We went to this place three times within five days.To all those negative reviewers, the waiters here are run off their feet because the place is always busy. Why is it always busy, because the Tapas are authentic,taste great and are quite inexpensive add to that a good wine selection at reasonable prices. So if you are in a hurry don't go to De la Ostia, but if you want a relaxed fun night out with good food and wine this is the place. You don't need to speak spanish as the menu has photo's of all the dishes. The menu's are on paper tablecloths we were so impressed with the food we asked for our table menu, they brought us a new one all rolled up. In closing I just want to say be nice to your waiter and he will be nice to you.

“Worse service ever! Muy mala educación!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I was there for a drink and some food late in the evening. Even if the food was pretty delicious, we didn't have such a great experience: the staff was annoying and not welcoming and we had to ask many times for ordering.

“Cojonudo”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

You feel in Spain. The tapas and pintxos are stunning! Dont miss the Cojonudo. The drink a little expensive but well done. Funny people, relax and cool.

A tapas place off the main road with sidewalk tables and indoor bar/tables. Tried a few tapas, tortilla and sangria, overall average.
