I visited Casa Puga with my two adult children in mid-February. We were advised to arrive early, which proved to be an advantage because within 20 minutes of 8pm the restaurant had no remaining seating. The interior of this traditional Spanish restaurant is split by a well stocked bar. There is standing room and a few bar stools to enjoy... More

Our tapas were very good, but the staff does not cater to tourists. All locals in this spot and little tolerance for tourists. Small dining room in back for dinner menu only, tapas only available in front bar area. We were in town for 1 month and did not return. Other restaurants much friendlier.

We raved about Casa Puga to friends staying with us and were therefore embarrassed by our experience at lunchtime the other day. The waiter was not at all interested in helping us to enjoy our lunch, he was impatient (maybe he doesn't like English people) and couldn't even give us one smile. The food was, at best, mediocre and not... More

A small area at the tiled back for the sit down restaurant with one waiter rushing around like a madman. I only had tapas. Games rosado a la plancha E12 and grilled squid and octopus. Great atmosphere. The long tapas bar was packed by 21.00. Highly recommended.

Eaten here a couple of times. Great traditional tapas bar, very atmospheric. Got to have plate of Jamon Iberico and Padron peppers. Very nice wine and service efficient. Good I trip to Spanish tapas.

Have visited this bar on a number of occasions over the years and the tapas are excellent. Yes - you do get larger portions in some of hostelries in the tourist centres like Roquetas and Mojacar but I like Casa Puga - the food is of good quality and I like the atmosphere.

You must visit this charming bar. Very Spanish atmosphere with most people standing while they have a drink and a tapas.

This is a lovely bar and can be very busy. If you want to soak up the atmosphere then stand at the bar and order a drink, you will be given a Tapas menu to choose from, one tapa for each drink, if you are hungry then order something else from the menu. The tables are for people in the... More

A lovely venue with ok food, however overpriced, but sadly let down by staff who don't even look you in the eye or appear to care about your experience, such a shame but I would not recommend this to anyone visiting Almeria, there are a lot of better places that are a lot cheaper.
