Very close to my hotel, just crossed the tiny street, the obvious choice was a really good surprise. The food was extremely tasty. We tried a reservation for the same night, but it was already fully booked. I believe the place is very appreciated by...More

The place was very busy, maybe that's why the service was VERY slow. Took ages to get our drinks ( I ordered​ a draught and got a bottle). Food was good but not special. I think that the service and maybe the food mite be...More

The place is cozy, choice of the tapas is rich. They also serve tasty business lunches - big portions for reasonable price.

This Spanish restaurant was recommended by local and it did not disappoint. Small, cozy establishment has excellent selection of tapas, seafood and libations - beer and wine are very good. Highly recommend this place in a cool neighborhood!

There is my new review about the restaurant El EspaNol - der Spanier. Tapas and wine are good, very good choice, but the slaff is bit slower. I can recommend this place

A lot of the food is here is less tapas than various dishes served in small portions in tapas dishes; nevertheless, my husband and I enjoy the food a lot, especially the "jalapeno poppers" (that's not what they're called, but that's essentially what they are)...More
