The food was incredible with the service to match. The head waiter, unsure of his name made us feel more than welcome and ensuring the food throughout was as he previously stated it would be. Incredible.

Very good meal. English-speaking- friendly. Friendly host who made some recommendations on dishes. Very good wine selection. They do have a big groups' table which can slow down service but we didn't have too much of a problem with this.

Female-owned restaurant has a varied list of small-plate dishes. My friend raved about the grilled octopus. Other seafood choices, and good vegetarian dishes as well.

Been there a few days ago. I took a table in the smaller part of the restaurant. They had the menu translated in various languages. Eaten very well and the staff was helpful. If you expect big quantity over quality, don't go. I will go again if time permits.

We were lucky to grab the last table at this lovely tapas place. Food was very good - plentiful despite tapas, and wine options were really excellent. Great atmosphere as well.

Try the cod and other tapas you will enjoy them. Get stable on the window and enjoy the wine. Great service from friendly people. Good value for money.

Decided to try fangas mercearia bar based on the review in lonely planet and the recommendation from our hotel. The food was fantastic, I like the small plate format because it allowed us to try more items. Service was incredibly friendly and helpful, it was a fantastic place to spend an evening.
