Very good portion of free Tapas with every drink bought. Would have liked more choice in the Tapas given .

This place is not posh. Very crowded. No seats. However, it is very informal. A great place to visit. The tapas were warm and filling. The beer was fine. I think it is a must visit to see a traditional Spanish bar.

The tapas are good and cheap. The cider, in our opinion, was bad (and it is called a "cider bar"...) - ask for a beer instead. The service is very fast since they choose your own tapas (that come included with a drink). Worth trying.

Perfect place for tourists and locals. You get a huge amount of food for free with your 2'5€ drink. Remember that it is for free, so don't ask for something specific, you will get a bunch of different things. You also have a menu which...More

I told some friends who are locals about the line I saw to get into the Tapas joint near my hotel. They immediately knew the place and told me it’s where the locals go. They cited the freebie you got when you ordered a drink...More

This is a great place. Just order a drink and you receive a very generous plate of tapas. The presentation and the service aren't up to much, but that's all part of the experience. There's now three of the same place, all very near each...More

It might be tight with 27 people but think it could accommodate you. Great tapas in relaxed atmosphere - reasonable wine and beers.
