Description: Dit restaurant is te vinden op meerdere plaatsen in Nederland, maar in Leiden is het sowieso doordeweeks altijd vol! Reserveren is dan ook zeer belangrijk, want anders moet je lang wachten of moet je verder zoeken. Onbeperkt Tapas-eten is erg lekker en je mag zoveel rondes doen die je wil en het liefst zou ik alle gerechten proberen, maar ik zit voor die tijd al vol!

If you go with friends is nice but some times it is really croud.
The food is okey if you don't want to spend too much money
but to have fun.

I do not understand why this place is so packed and popular. A far from authentic "tapas" bar with a Cuban theme. You can add your comment on the wall, ceiling, table, bench or the Che Guevara picture, if you find a blank spot. And that's pretty much the best about this otherwise unremarkable restaurant. As for the food, everything is oily and bland, and the sangria is nice and watery. On top of that, not even cheap for a student town. But the service is friendly and efficient, and if you go with a group of friends, you won't even notice where you are!

The venue is cute, the walls covered with messages left by previous patrons, and service is friendly.

The weekdays 17.50 euro deal for unlimited tapas sounds good, particularly when you consider the prices of individual tapas. However, getting the tapas at your table is a very slow affair, while many of the tapas are surprisingly small, considering their list price.
Most of the tapas are nice, but not exceptional.

Getting the unlimited tapas deal comes with a bunch of house rules, the most condescending being not being able to ask for a glass of tap water.

The restaurant claims to specialize in tapas, but quality was not according to price. If you are visiting in a large group, it is advisable to close the menu (both prize, quantity and content) at the time of booking the table. Otherwise you may have an unpleasent surprise.

When we were the place was really crowded and noisy. What made the experience so bad, was the lack of air-conditioning. Not a nice feeling to be eating and almost sweating because the place is cooking. Will not be going back here. Service was soooo slow in between rounds that we left and grabbed a bite elsewhere.
