This place is great if you're looking for that special local flavor and just another tourist place. It has of course it's ups and downs but overall it was an excellent experience. The owner may be a well-known person locally, at least there are many photos of him on the walls at different events. He's now an elderly gentleman who was at the restaurant and helped serving the food for the older lady (his wife?) who was our (and seemingly the only) waitress. They do not speak English, so you better brush up you Spanish, but it will be worth it: the tapas were fantastic (different shrimps, cheeses, hams etc), the paellas were very good and varied, the whole atmosphere was showing that it's more than a business for them.

However, the standards are quite different in certain areas... I had a crushed fly on the rim of my beer mug when I got my beer. When I asked for it to be fixed, she cleaned it off with her finger and wanted to leave it at that, but then of course when I insisted she switched it; this time carefully selecting from many of the beermugs and separately washing it to make sure it's fine.

The food and the atmosphere still makes this place excellent, however do not visit if you are extremely sensitive to such issues. I believe such places have the best food in Spain, but it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Contrary to what it says on their own website, they don't open until 8pm in the evening. I didn't actually visit the place, because I showed up at 7pm. I gave it 5 stars to not mess with it's high rating, just to tell other visitors about their opening times.

It was our 2nd time here in 6 months and the standard is still as good. I highly recommend you let the owner choose for you and try everything. Really authentic Spanish cuisine and don´t be frightened of the house wine even though it has no label. The owner is delightful !!
