We just love this tapas bar run by the ever-welcoming Jill and Manolo. Even on dull damp days, it always reminds us of warm summer holidays in Spain and Majorca. The food last night (as always) was excellent, freshly prepared and full of Mediterranean flavour. There was bottled Estrella available as well as San Miguel, and a great choice of... More

I had a party of 34 on a Thursday night, a mixed group of friends and neighbours. Manolo was the consummate host, amusing and attentive. The food was absolutely fantastic, good quality, fresh local produce, beautifully presented and coming in wave after wave of delights! The Sangria was home made and delicious. The atmosphere was convivial, the background music highly... More

It is so lovely to welcomed by Manolo and Jill with such genuine pleasure. You are made to feel like you are special. The Tapas is second to non on the island, and as genuine Spanish as you can get. The ambiance is very relaxing, it's worth going back again and again .

The food tasted amazing, we didn't try the main meals, instead opting for 5 tapas, and all of them were incredible. Would definitely recommend the Pan a la Malaguena and the Boquerones en Vinagre, they were delicious! The host was very nice and funny, talking and joking with us throughout the meal. Will definitely return in the future!

Every time we visit we always get best of the best. If you want to practice Spanish and learn about Spanish culture this is the place to go. 1000% recommend if you want to have a good time and, on TOP of everything, they have got the BEST sangría in the whole Isle of Man. Manolo and Jill, you are... More

Excellent food, good wine, even better host, what else do you need? There's never a boring visit to Tapas when Manolo is around. Great tapas selection and one of the best home made sangrias this side of Malaga. I cannot recommend it enough.

The food is typical Spanish tapas restaurant with reasonable prices but the Sangria in Tapas is a different story. If you are in the area you have to go at least for a glass (and one is not enough). Cold glass of Sangria, i would like to have a glass right now but i'm so far away.
