Such a lovely restaurant. Excellent value, delicious food, friendly staff, speedy service. I was only in Alcala for 5 days and we went back a few times. Wish El Tapon would move to Ireland!

El Tapon has several selling points in Alcalà (one very near to the bus station). It is a bar-de-tapas without many courtesy for the guests, but the quality/price ratio is ok. The bread could be better, but the other ingredients they use are good. A nice place where to have a fast snack.
