Recommended by locals, always a good start, El Bararacon, is a typical Spanish tapas bar. We had to wait for a table, but only 15 mins. The staff were business-like, but helpful enough. The service was good and the proportions generous with a good range....More

Who would think to go to a tapas bar in this shopping center. Order the stewed pork cheeks tapas,the albondigas or the berenjena frita which are exceptional and addictive here.

Genuin tapas place, with good food and prices. Rather small and very busy, but it’s worth waiting for a table or go early (before the locals eat dinner). Good and friendly service.

An authentic tapas restaurant located in a car park next to the motorway. It sounds rubbish but actually the food is very good. We love it and visit regularly as do many Spanish and a number of local expats. Good for lunch. Don’t get sucked...More

We chose this bar as it’s quite local and is always full of locals, which is normally a good sign, on this occasion we couldn’t have been more wrong. From the minute we arrived the staff appeared welcoming, but this instantly changed to pushy and...More
