The tapas we tried were just ok. We did artichokes soaked in garlic and wine which were wonderful. The bread was homemade and excellent. The prawns were ok, just mushy. The machengo cheese was ok. The croquettes were the best of anything. Of course the...More

We came back here as we have always had good tapas here before, however, this time we came in the evening and whilst service was very quick, in fact a bit rushed, we felt crammed in and the quality of the tapas was very average.

A bad restaurant with unfriendly people, first we had a table in a quiet area then without any reason they changed our place, this restaurant is nothing special and dirty but very expensive

Visited here to try authentic tapas. Attractive little room but low ceiling didn't help with the noise level. Partying group of Englishwoman often over-loud on one side and similar loud group of Germans on other made it virtually impossible to hear each other speak. Food...More

We chose Fritto Mallorquin Marisco, Pulpo Galecian, Patatas Bravas, Gambas (in hot sizzling garlic oil) They were large dishes, came with bread too. This is plenty for two of you, they are not typical tapas sizes. Really delicious food, a place we shall go back...More

Sa Volta and La Cueva were two adjoining Tapas bars owned and run by the Nieto brothers. (I think their parents established them.) Sa Volta was TINY but they have now connected the two bars and they are packed out every night. The food is incredible. The service is excellent.
