“Nice local hang-out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

There is nothing pretentious about this place, and it makes for a relaxed evening out. Although they were packed on the evening we were there, the service was very good and the food even better.

We ordered more than once as we weren't sure about the portions, etc. but the waiter was more than happy with this. The language barrier was no problem and we managed just fine (although we weren't always 100% sure what we'd ordered:) but this was part of the fun). All the dishes were very good. Wine and beer are also not expensive and quick to arrive.

A definite must for a fun, relaxed evening out with friends, together with the locals.

“Locals bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Stopped by here for a night cap and was sadly too late for food, tapas is meant to be excellent. Nice no frills bar, worth a visit. Recommend for a slice of local life away from English and German tourists!

“Authentic, relaxed & great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

This place is definitely worth seeking out. We've been twice on a 4 night trip. A really friendly & hospitable place full of locals. We sat at the bar both nights. We had plenty to eat, lots of wine and craft beers too. The service was great and the bill very reasonable. Relaxed and fun. We weren't rushed at all. Favourite tapas... Pork with foie gras! Would definitely recommend & return.

“Worth seeking out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We had visited this tapas bar a few years ago and were concerned that it might have become too touristy as it now features in some guide books. We needn't have worried. The bar was still full of locals especially the orignal bar area. There is now an extension which we thought had less of an atmosphere and felt more like a restaurant. The staff are very friendly and the prices extremely low. You can help yourself to the tapas on the counter, they will add to your tab if they see what you are taking but operate a bit of an honesty policy expecting people to own up when the bill comes if they have had more than stated on the bill. The tortilla is excellent as was a pork, apple and goats cheese tapas. As stated in other reviews it is difficult to find but it is worth seeking it out.
