Arrived to the island early and needed to kill some time before check in. On the way to Meloneras, google maps told us this place would be good for a quick bite. There was a good amount of people Thursday morning. We seated ourselves behind the bar and started looking at all the bocadillos and tortillas behind the glass. I... More

This place is very busy with waiters really running their feet off to keep up with all the customers - compared with the nearby Taberna El Picoteo, this place is more "modern", but I actually prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of El Picoteo. La Tapita has a generous selection of tapas and dishes, and all we have tried have been... More

Excellence personified. Tricky to find but worth the walk. Everything was quality, staff, food, decor and toilets. Always judge a place by the latter! Look out for the waiter with excellent English - his mum comes from Scarborough.

So pleased that we found this place. Proper, tasty tapas away from all the tourists. We had a fantastic meal, and the desserts were homemade and gorgeous. If you want to get away from the fake food in the busier parts of town, then head down here. Really lovely place and very good value for money. Was also nice to... More

Was here in May and simply had to return again in November. The place has been altered and redecorated with more of a modern feel. The staff were very supportive with the menu and the food was wonderful we did not leave a morsel. Looking forward to returning in May.

Recommended by our airbnb host. Fabulous find, very popular. We sat outside as there was a queue for inside. Good service, friendly staff, prawns in garlic were delicious, as we're the croquettes. Would highly recommend

This is a very popular Restaurant outside of the hub of all the other places to eat in the resort. It is always packed with Spanish diners which in itself is a great recommendation. My friend and I visited this place for breakfast and Dinner a couple of times in two weeks. The menu is fantastic with an excellent choice... More

I love tapas and chose this place from TA reviews. I actually walked 3.5 miles to get there! It was a busy Monday lunchtime in a typical residential area. The food was excellent and very well priced as it's not aimed at the tourist market but I'd hoped for a more relaxing experience in a more traditional Spanish environment. I... More
