“Nice busy spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

I ordered "baby lamb" and expected very young lamb in the typical Spanish style (does what it says on the tin, and all that ?) but got a very large, slightly overcooked lamb shank. It was nice enough, just not what I'd expected. Wine and service were fine but I keep forgetting you can smoke at tables on terraces - should have eaten indoors.

“Worst Meal Ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

One of the places to avoid. Food appeared to be cooked months a go, not fresh food. I had a fish with some chips , which I could bet that they were used before at some other table, my friend had the worst chuleton ever with some vegetables boiled and re-warmed . Awful meal . I wouldn't eat over there, not even if they would pay to do so.

“Best value in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

If you want a cheaper meal and still want to retain an acceptable quality then eating at Tipico Espanyol is the answer. There is a good choice on the menu, prices are cheaper compared to other similar restaurants in the resort. The food quality is good although not notch and you get large portions. The staff are friendly and like a joke. If there is a down side the owner is obviously after a quick turnover so if you want a prolonged meal at a leisurely pace this may not be the ideal choice. we are certainly happy eating here.
