“Great tapas and cheap drinks in the happy hour!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

We had a great night here and enjoyed the delicious fresh tapas and the price of the drinks was even better, 2 large beers for 2.50 euros or 2 local spirit and mixer 3.50 euros! There was a band on that evening which gave a really good atmosphere. Would like to go back to try different tapas dishes as the selection was huge!

“Poor customer service”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

After reading the positive reviews we decided as a group of 7 to visit El Capitan on Saturday 28th July. We arrived and just seemed to hang around for ages before any member of staff approached us. We were then told the only table we could have was inside. The lady then walked off and once again left to our own devices. We walked through the restaurant and eventually found the table. After sitting down in a very stuffy, hot corner we waited and waited and waited. No sign of anyone even taking a drinks order. Needless to say we all got up and left. We were very dissapointed as good customer service is the bones of any establishment.

“prepare to queue”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

brilliant happy hours, 2 pints for 2.50. However gets busy, and in typical spanish fashion in no rush, so queues were common. Locals were given preference and cold frosted glasses all the time as welll.

“Excellent value, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Well deserving of the number one spot, came here on the last night of our trip and was not disappointed. The waitress was indeed very helpful and suggested some excellent dishes (majority of which I had never tried before) and all were absolutely delicious. Service was fast and the atmosphere was relaxed, with live music playing in the background. We went during happy hour so a jug of sangria was only €5 as well! Would reccomend to anyone after a good quality tapas bar that is great value for money - all 5 of our tapas dishes were only €16!
