We found this little gem whilst looking for lunch. Down a quiet pedestrianised road with tables on the path, we had Caesar salad, jamon Iberica and garlic prawns, washed down with house white wine. The menu was presented on ipad, which was an easy way to select our food. The service was very friendly, the tapas delicious and the atmosphere... More

We randomly found this place while wandering around the city. The staff were very friendly and even gave me a tablet with the menu in English including photos to better help me decide what to order. I would highly recommend the gazpacho and spinach croquettes. It has some nice outdoor seating and a great selection of food.

Excellent, friendly service: we ordered some tapas and a bottle of red wine. The wine was excellent and the food was above average. Would go again

We went here during the full moon festival and we're lucky enough to find a free table. The service was very friendly and the menu was available on a tablet in several languages. We had 4 different tapas, namely potatoes, shrimps, mushrooms with curry and fried doe with a cheese filling. All of them tasted excellent. The service was quick... More

Great food, superb ambience and friendly staff... Shame about the guy on the next table smoking a huge cigar throughout my entire meal and the santa Cruz evening breeze sending it's sweet and sickley aroma right across my table.. Oh the joys of al fresco dining. Still it beats London pollution.. Just.. Well recommended

I accidentally found this place walking back home from a friend. Wow! What a jewel. Nicely decorated with attention to detail. The best juiciest fresh baked tuna I had for a long time. I will be back for sure. Also very helpful with helping me with gluten-free food. Great selection of local food and loved the wine selection as well!

It's on the back street between two shopping districts. English menu available, as well as spoken. Shrimp in oil is a standard fare, but the wine was well priced along with the other tapas. Well worth your time to stop for food. A recommend!

Had some really nice tapas sitting outside this buzzy little restaurant in a narrow pedestrianised street. There were other restaurants around but they didn't seem as busy so we were glad we booked. Had a couple of jugs of Sangria, delicious, and a selection of tapas which came out as ready. The welcome was warm and the food good. Sitting... More
