“Fantastic tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were only in the area for 6 nights but went back here for a second time as it was so good. Nothing much to add to previous reviews other than confirm staff are happy to translate the blackboard of options, also has free wifi for a bit of googling! I like how it is not in english, it is Spain after all and keeps it a bit more authentic.

Also as mentioned prices are very fair, house white is E2.20 a glass.

“As good as it gets!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

We've eaten here twice in the last 5 weeks and both times the food was superb. Customer service is excellent from the moment you enter the restaurant - barely enough time to sit at a table and the olives are being delivered to you. The food is excellent, attractively presented and served by smiling waitresses who seem genuinely pleased to see you. Tried the Tartar de Atun today based on another reviewer's recommendation and it was awesome!

“Pura Genius”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We live in Sotogrande so we are lucky to have this little gem on our doorstep.
It's not in the best location - no sea views and on the main road through the village of Torreguadiario - but it more than makes up for that once inside.
The atmosphere is buzzy and the Tapas delicious. The food is beautifully presented with a touch of class. This is up market tapas for sure, but not upmarket prices.
We have tried much of the menu and it is all good. Favourites include the langoustines with peanut dip and the prawns with humus. Oh and the mini Ox burgers are to die for!
Enjoy!

“AND NOW EVEN MORE SPACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Went for my birthday with my wife got there at 8pm on a thurs march night ,we were literally the only people there,by the time we finished our meal the place was completely packed (now 25 per cent more seating) Just something about this place that has theX Factor,very informal most seating is bar stools and order from a blackboard,waitress's dart around and are very sweet ,but sometimes find themselves in "The Weeds " over whelmed by the share amount of food to serve when it is crowed to the Max.Being Vegitarians can sometimes be quite tricky in Spain if one doesn't eat fish or poultry,but here you have a goat cheese salad,mushrooms,potatoes,aspagus,Cous Cous ( sometimes )Really lovely yummy food ,we always enjoy our vist and can walk away satiated after drinking wine ,eating desert and coffee ,cost 35 Euros ,we find it good value for this area so we Love this place!!!
