We're regularly eaten here whilst visiting family and the food gets better and better! I'd choose anything from the menu as it's all wonderful but the lamb shank for 2 and duck dishes steal the show. Oscar is also a great host and will ensure that you have a great experience.

Maybe that is because I read so many great reviews on here and was expecting too much!

The restaurant was lovely and friendly but I think I would have preferred more traditional dishes - there were a lot of thai influences which for me didn't sit well with a tapas restaurant - if anything I felt it was trying a bit too hard to pander to English tastes (and we found Competa very English) and fusion tastes.

Having said that the food was good quality, the beer was cold and the square was pretty. But if you want a very traditional tapas you may want to try elsewhere.

We had prawns in delicious sauce, fish (do not remember exactly which) and grilled brie with almonds - I have to try prepare it at home :-) and sangria with vanilla. Everything very tasty but portions more as a snack than a big feast for hungry tourist

Spent 2 nights in Competa and decided to try Oscars one night.Food was average,service wasn't very good,the waiter chose to ignore us and pay special attention to a table of 8 who sat down 5 mins after us,must of been expecting a nice big tip since there was only 2 of us.Eventually got to order our drinks once the 8 had recieved there drinks and starters.
Would we go back,probably not!

What a lovely little restaurant, really good and very personal service and a good range of well prepared food. Oscar will warn you that the tapas are bigger than normal and he is not wrong, do not make the mistake of ordering too much. Spain at its best for cosmopolitan clients.
