This restaurant is decorated with bullfighting posters and is very old with only a few tables, and larger standup bar. The food we had was good. A local restaurant worth a visit for the experience. Not a fusion food type of restaurant, just your traditional local menu.

This restaurant has some of the best Spanish food you'll find anywhere. They take all the typical Spanish dishes and make the great. Some dishes you can only order as a ration or Medio ration, but really if it's that much you will want that much. It's really good food. Lacks alittle on seating also but it's an experience to...

Just a five minute walk from out hotel (Ribera de Triana). Typical opening time of 8:30 PM was worth the wait...great Tapas and good table wine, friendly service despite our inability to speak much Spanish...

Large portions of tasty food at very affordable prices. Traditional Andalusian food. Peculiar atmosphere, bullfight posters in the walls, toilet paper as tissue, ... fun overall in my opinion. Suboptimal location, in an otherwise dull corner of the Triana area. Polite staff, though on the unfriendly side.

Lovely tapas. Staff reluctant to let us in at 1.00 when it was meant to be open as advertised. It was in the middle of a storm. 10 minutes they said. Got in eventually, having got soaked. Great food. Surly staff.

I went the for diner, and it was a disapointing experience from start to finish. We went there at 8:30, but they were late and didn't open the door for us til 9:15pmish. So we had to wait at the front door , while the staff was ignoring us and smoking and chatting away. Then, the staff was the least... More

If you are looking for, an authentic Spanish tapas bar, then this little place is an absolute must. The setting is unbelievable. Tiny little bar, with full menu selection written on paper posted onto the walls and toilet rolls dotted around, for serviettes. The food was gorgeous, especially the ham and cheese. Definitely an experience not to be missed.

This is a definite must if you want genuine and totally delicious tapas in a extraordinary setting. A bonus is that the menu is in English too to give you a helping hand. It is slightly off the beaten track but is amazing to eat in for the both the food and the ambiance. We went with our 3 boys... More

A classic taberna at the heart of Triana with the true tapas one can just expect to find. Toilet paper instead of serviettes come as a bit of surprise but one can't help feeling the genuine taste of locals. Salmorejo is superb and ham exquisite
