“Good Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is a really good bar. We lived in RDM for 4 yrs and the food and clientele at this bar are second to none. If you are a brit there is an English supermarket nearby. the owners go out of their way to be helpful and are the most friendly people that we know.
The bar itself: FANTASTIC!!! a real piece of Spanish tapas that all can appreciate. the beer is cold, and the food is really good. menus are in all languages too. the staff are very helpful and friendly too.
Food-wise: try everything because this is the best bar in the Urbanization that has food cooked the "proper" way.
Just a tip>>>>>>>> if you can, try and find a seat inside if you come during the hot months... the fly's do become annoying after a while but that is only because its so popular and food is left for a few moments as happens elsewhere.

“Good tapas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is one of many tapas bars on the Av. del Mediterraneo and it is very popular among both locals and tourists. The tapas selection is wide and mostly very good, however it is not that special like many says here in the reviews and somethings are better made elsewhere like at Bar Jaen just few steps away. I had some good tapas at La Gamba and then I had a chicken tapa that was so salty, I couldn't eat it. Nice bar anyway with possibility to sit outdoors as well.

“Great bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Been at the Gamba de Oro several times, and it's always a great spot to have a cool beer or a glass of wine with a tapa on the side. It's a busy place, but that's just part of the experience.

“Great Value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place was recommended by our hotel and we noticed it always had people sitting at the bar outside. We had a meal their and the waiter was extremely helpful and friendly in guiding our choices. We were too full to have desert, this place gets very busy with locals and tourists. Great value and great wine!

“Best Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

You can't miss this place, always has a crowd of people sitting outside enjoying the tapas, at all times of the year. Very popular with the locals. On the corner of a square full of bars and reataurants and by far the busiest of the lot, but great and prompt service. Very good menu de dia and an extensive selection. Great prices also.
