Attended on 31/07/14. Be aware if you're English DO NOT visit this bar... We went for tapas and a drink; the menu clearly states that if you purchase an alcoholic beverage then tapas is free (if not then you pay €1.50) ALL of the Spanish customers were receiving this... The gentleman who served us asked if we would like food? We replied with "yes please we would like tapas"; we were looking at the tapas menu and made some suggestions to which the gentleman "explained" "we have a lovely meat selection of tapas" so we agreed. After a few moments he returned and said "I ordered 2 as 1 will be gone in a few minutes as is so delicious". We waited about 30 minutes, watching all of the lovely looking tapas being distributed to the other tables, and was then presented with two plates of over cooked, very dry and not nice tasting meat. This was not what we were expecting as was not tapas at all... On asking for the bill we did not receive any free tapas but were charged €18 per plate... So for a drink each (6 people) and 2 plates of meat (1 of which we didn't even order) it cost €66 ... On speaking to other bar owners in the area, this is something they have done to many English people before.

The resort as a whole
Is amazing and this has not ever happened before. Just a warning to people from Britain.

I do not normally write reviews but so disappointed this happened to our family and obviously has happened to others.

Gutted we only found this place as our stay was coming to an end. This place was easily the best food we had in Roquetas. Very busy and you don't get an English Tapas menu and the waitress doesn't speak English ( or so she pretends ) but its well worth a visit. We got a few tapas that we didn't even ask for but it is so cheap that it didn't matter

If you want a taste of real Spain then come here. A little Spanish helps if you want to order tapas but just ask and they will help you, especially if you do try to speak some of the language. They do have an English menu if you really must.

The tapas, the vibe, the staff, the price - All amazing. This is the one place in Roquetas de Mar that I will be going back to.

I loved it! Hubby did too and he is terribly hard to please.

On going into this bar and sitting down a very offensive waiter came up and was so rude to us that we walked back out we felt very threatened by his attitude, this is the first spanish person that we have come across like this. We wont be setting foot back in there.

A local recommended this restaurant and it sure did deliver! The tapas was Amazing-the best I've ever had and the food was sensational. It's one of those places you never find out about unless you ask the locals. I wonder why? Definitely worth an entire evening for tasting and feeling like a true spaniard. Muy bien!
