First time I had breakfast there after dropping the children off at school. 2 coffee, 2 pitufos (breadrolls) with zurrapa all for the princely sum of 4,50 euros. Tasty breakfast, nice surroundings, unbeatable price. What more do you want...

This is a very nice and small restaurant. The food was splendid and the service was very friendly. We had a nice time on the pavement together with mostly local People.

Try it out when in El Palo! This is a typical spanish bar where you can eat good tapas. Not a lot of space inside so don't expect a touristtrap!

We went here for lunch and opted for two burgers, salad and chips. The duck and beef burgers were very good. Tip - if you don't like your meat cooked rare ask for it to be well done. Decent chips, tasty salad and good service....More

A local bar. Ate here twice - "Tapas" but the portions were such that two of these made a meal, washed down with a glass or two of vino tinto :). Tasty, cheap, cheerful!
