El Sur is a great place for tapas. They're not cheap but the food is just so delicious! We had the olives, the octopus with cheese, the honey aubergine, the avacado salmon tartar roll and the charcuterie board. I'm not going into specifics because everything we tasted was amazing! The only points I would take away would be from their sangria which is not a great example. I highly recommend El Sur, enjoy!

This place is very friendly, their Tapas menu is full of great options. The service is good too. They have an outdoor area and even though the view is not the best its still great for sundowners. Best patatas bravas en Dubai.
