We had an excellent very inexpensive lunch with friends. Great array of tapas and some very good rose wine added to our happiness of spending time with friends. A fun place with friendly staff.

This place looks a bit like a canteen....but carry on walking through and you come to a large garden terrace. We stayed in the actual bar....just stay where you are and a waiter will come and take your drink and tapas order. Great tapas.....fab atmosphere....enjoy!

Gets really busy so service can be really slow. Definitely book and ask for outside table not bear over hanging tree. Usually some nice music entertainers. Food is nice

If you want real Spain head to this busy bar packed with Spanish. Each drink you get a free tapas which is freshly prepared. The price are so cheap! There is a huge terrace out the back if you want a meal

Most of the tapas are seafood. The clams and mussels are steamed and should not have gluten, nor should the chorizo. Much of the seafood, however, may very well have gluten. You can ask what items are cooked in flour... More
