Not very cheap, but really delicious tapas. Maybe the best I ever had. We had the foie gras toast, shrimp croquettes, toast with crab and the pluma iberico. Very advisable.

Located in a really cute little Street. The price can be expensive if you eat a lot. Each tapas costs around 10€ and most of the times comes with four pieces. A bottle of rosé costed 23€. It's kind of dark so it gets romantic. The only bad thing is that everything is so tight that I literally dropped a... More

Cozy, dark, romantic atmosphere . Perfect for date night. Luckily, we stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for another one. It is tucked away in a narrow alley and is cash only. The service was a little slow, so we would recommend ordering all of your tapas at once if possible.

Ate here tonight and got the clear message - locals strongly preferred. The food was OK but not great and the price was expensive for the quality and quantity. Avoid the "pat as Brava" do eat the Calamari. Expect slow to negligent service and if you are seated upstairs also expect to sweat (a lot) as there is no moving... More

This is a tiny restaurant tucked into a small alley. Hard to miss it. In theory the idea sounded amazing. The person who told us about it told us it was tapas. We did order several things but sharing amongst 3 people, the servings were minimal. There was two small beef sliders for almost 13 euros! The tapas were very... More

I went in on a Friday fully intending to order food but asked for a beer first and this guy behind the bar refused to serve me stating it wasn't a bar and I had to order food so I asked for a menu. What ensued was a great local beer, fantastic olives and the best mini pastrami sandwiches I've... More

It was the last night of our holiday and from the initial appearance we thought this restaurant looked like a great way to end our trip. The owner was friendly at first and we ordered upstairs. We waited from that point for over an hour for each tapas dish, which was incredibly expensive and over priced. The waitress seemed intent... More

Cookies is a charming, out of way, place to have dinner and drinks. The tapas are tasty but as you would expect, served in small portions which means you need to order quite a few if you arrive with an appetite. It can get expensive. Service was ok.

This Restaurant really surprised me with the high quality they offer to their costumers. They offer a perfect evening, with their staff doing their best to give you some night out of heaven. The food here is from another world, for not say heaven as well. I always thought dough Tapas in Belgium could not be as Tapas in Spain.... More

Neat, cozy affair, cocoon. Hiding in an alley. Nice to linger with a glass and a bite, nothing more. Service is just ok. The tapas are very nice and well kept, but outrageously expensive . Therefore to avoid if you have a big appetite. They're more appetizers than tapas. If you order multiple tapas the amount runs up quickly!
