Nice atmosphere and friendly stuff! A very good selection of cold and warm spanish tapas. And they also have a few good wines and Sangria. You have to make a reservation, especially at the weekends.

A group of us visited here for a mini celebration and we had a wonderful time. The tapas were decent and they even arrange special vegetarian tapas for our Vegan colleague. The wine was great and the atmosphere friendly. Be aware they only accept cash!

It's nice to come here every now and then as its different than the other restaurants in Darmstadt. The food is ok, the wines are not bad. The owners are quite friendly though. You should reserve as its usually full..

A good selection of some classic spanish tapas, always enjoy the sangria and have a good time. Only spanish and german menus but you can mostly guess what things are and get a nice surprise otherwise. Good value, always surprised at the bill at the end as it always ends up being less than expected.

When you're craving spanish tapas, cold or hot, and would like a good wine to accompany them, then this is the perfect place! They offer anything from the "standards" like fried potatoes in gravy to grilled octopus. Definitely get a reservation well in advance, as this place is rather small and always packed.

The place basically looks like a fairly outdated pub, dark wood bar, tables and chairs. But the selection of tapas is excellent and well prepared, tasty, and fairly cheap. Good value for money. Spanish music, spanish boss, spanish beers, sangria (not being a fan, didn't taste it). We tried gambas a la plancha, tortilla, chorizo frito and a few more...... More 

Thank Elfinst0ne
