Stopped in for lunch and the waiter let us know we had ordered plenty of food. I thought maybe it was tapas sized orders but they were full size. Good food at a reasonable price and fast and friendly service.

Sa Volta and La Cueva were two adjoining Tapas bars owned and run by the Nieto brothers. (I think their parents established them.) Sa Volta was TINY but they have now connected the two bars and they are packed out every night. The food is incredible. The service is excellent.
