First night, we had wine and tapas - 4 tapas plenty for the 2 of us. The guys behind the bar were great - I wanted to speak Spanish and I'm sure they spoke slowly - but also helped with English (I'd not met the word for quail before!). Lovely lively atmosphere, good food. Unfortunately, we went to the restaurant... More

Very welcome haven for lunch after lots of walking around the old town. Much better food than the aparently more chic places nearer to the Cathedral and well worth a detour.Tapas probably better than restaurant menu though both very good especially for meat eaters.

This restaurant deserves 5 star for it's excellent selection of tasty tapas and my 4 star award relates to their uncomfortable stools! You can sit down and enjoy their full menu but tapas are only served at the bar. However, don't let the stools put you off. The food is good, the staff very friendly, prices reasonable and I would...

We came five minutes before they were supposed to open, and there was already a queue at the door. They opened half an hour later. We got places at the bar and ordered some tapas. Best Iberico ham in town and nice sandwiches. The "matrimonio" was so salty that i needed three beers...but I guess that is how it is... More

We went there twice. The second time we had a different waiter who spoke a bit of English which was a bonus his name was Javier. He was a sweetheart and asked if he could make the suggestions. It was an amazing dinner, we tried the pig cheeks and they were awesome the whole meal was great and he had... More

Firstly, make sure you ask for Javier the best waiter in the place. We had a fantastic experience. Great food.....the pig cheeks being the highlight of the evening.

The restaurant was recommended to us by a long term resident of an Andalucia and he was spot on. Great restaurant with real character that has hams hanging all through the front and bar area. We had a selection of tapas, but the Garlic Prawns and Iberico Ham on Sauteed Potatoes were outstanding. Good selection of wine, sherry, and of... More
