We went here following Lonely Planet advice and the food was truly delicious. The ambiance is rather gaudy with rock music but we escaped upstairs and had a great evening, my Camembert with berries was memorable and partner had delicious beef. Portions are hefty ! Our waiter was particularly helpful. Go if in Almería!

If you like something completely different and a bit quirky this bar is definitely that it,s extremely popular so we recommend to go before the 2 o,clock rush at lunchtime,downstairs there are bar stalls or standing room only which actually adds to the atmosphere upstairs there are tables which are for actual meals. The young chefs cook up some excellent tapas with a modern twist on the norm with fusion cooking from Mexican to Japanese they also specialise in tortillas and are some of the best we have eaten. Really friendly bar staff and a great atmosphere. We highly recommend a visit here for both tapas or book a table upstairs for a meal in rather theatrical surroundings.

Very good place in Almeria to feel the spanisch atmosphere. Cosy, laud wine bar with wide range of tapas. Nice service. It is perfekt to step by to eat something delicious or to meet with friends. During the summer it might be hot and there are no tables outside.

Best tapas ever!!!
I’am a movie lover, you step into a place where Tarantino meets Rodriguez.
My wife works as a chef in a 2 Michelin restaurant in Antwerp ( Belgium) and did not had such an experience as this before, for a tapa in the south of Spain.
The concept of this tapa bar is complete, the right spot in town, the menu presented in an old VHS cassette cover, the service is outstanding, and at last but not least the food needs a recommandation by Michelin.
