Came across this restaurant accidentally. Minutes after sitting down all the tables were full and we soon found out why. An excellent tapas choice, great service and central location make this a good place to eat. Reasonably priced as well.

This restaurant is a hidden gem in Almeria! Not totally appealing from outside, the food served is spectacular. An absolute recommendation when visiting Almeria. Added benefit: they offer a lot of gluten free choices

Service was pretty fast however the vino that came out with the cold tapas was terrible, iv seen better side salads in a franchised restaurant. The food we ate was cheap though probably due to only ordering two dishes and then leaving shortly after

We found the food very good particularly the mussels. The staff are very friendly and our evenings were most enjoyable. Worth a visit.
