Below the busy modern Plaza is an old historic courtyard (read the multilingual information signs which abound, explore the exit through the tunnel passage. Here you will find this atmospheric tapas bar, run seemingly single-handedly and offering a limited but varying range of excellent home made tapas. The inside seating is cosy and the wall decorations are fascinating Outside, by... More

Great little tapas bar in the centre of the pueblo. Camilo's English is minimal, but he's a real character and a great host.

This is a lovely secret little place below the main Plaza. Camilio just serves drinks and tapas but the wine and food is great quality and value. He is a real character and so helpful - you won't go hungry! Authentic tapas bar which we would recommend to all who are fed up with pretentious eateries.

Camilo the owner is always there and extremely helpful and willing to please. Food is served there too - unbeknown to many. The bar deserves to be... More
