“Really Spanish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

This place is a bit of an institution. Don't go there if you want a quiet meal and polite service.

If you are happy with crowds of noisy locals and you like lots of portions (raciones) then this is the place. Easy to find - just listen for the noise.

Definitely a place to try - you will love it or hate it!

“Excellent fish restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This restaurant combines the traditional 'tapas' bar with a good a la carte menu. The food is all sea food based but the tapas bar really does give you the opportunity to try lots of different dishes. If you like fish and chips you will love this place.

It does get very busy with locals at peak times but it is worth the wait.

Not the cheapest place in town to eat, but then good fresh fish tends to be a little more expensive.

“Not our favourite”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

Many have recommended this restaurant to us but the fish was so over cooked... And on top of that we had a rude waiter. But maybe we just had bad luck...?
