“Stunning dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

It is not as swish as some of it's competitors, but if you choose the right dish you can experience some of the best cooking in Andalucia.
On a recent visit we had a brilliant whole monkfish, cooked to perfection , centre of aged beef rib, served japanese style on a hot slate , clean fresh sashimi delicately spiced, excellent wines by the glass and super service, despite being crowded.
A real winner if you are in town.

“Designer tapas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Many of the restaurants were almost empty so it was a delight to be welcomed by our waiter and shown a table surrounded by others obviously enjoying their food. In fact the table next to us were actors and crew from the Sir Ridley Scott film Exodus which is currently on location in Almeria province. The choice of tapas was mouth-watering, the presentation far exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to return in the New Year to sample more of these delicious dishes. We found the wine a little more expensive than we expected but it was very smooth and enjoyable nonetheless.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

Visited this little bar/restaurant on the strength of tripadvisor and was so glad I 'd found it! Amazing, inventive tapas and a great wine list. All so reasonably priced too. Loved it!

“Best tapas in Almeria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

Amazing menu, both traditional tapas (served with each drink) and larger dishes. Price is extremely good considering the quality and choice.

“Excellent & Cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

We visited this tapas restaurant at midday during the Easter holiday in 2013 after finding it in the Michelin guide. It is tucked away down a side street and it quite small inside although it does have some outdoor seating.
It was fantastic for the price. We ordered about 8 tapas between 2 which consisted of:

Potatas Bravas
Crunchy Cannelloni
Hake Pie with Wasabi
Artichokes with clam vinaigrette
Frois Gras with roasted apples
Salmon toast with yogurt
Ox cheek in red wine (very good)

The waitresses didn't speak much English but that just added to the excellent quiet atmosphere.

Very good and would definitely visit again if I was in the area.
