There is some good Beer/food in Bruges this is another I do think only the Spanish do good tapas and a lot of restaurant's try to do their best this one is pretty good at it with a good selection.

We found it by chance... nice atmosphere, friendly service, and great value! We didn't eat. It food looked ok in other tables, it wasn't full but few tables were in eating ! Definitely would go back

Such a shame. Nice restaurant but food is reheated in microwaves. We enjoyed most of the food while we were there but got food poisoning and so we're up most of the night. Wouldn't recommend

Came here as my wife fancied tapas. Walked two miles to get here. Wish we hadn't bothered. Owner seemed under pressure although there were only 4 tables occupied. Took some considerable time to get drinks. We were advised not to order no more than 4 tapas as it would be too much. After ordering the food came quickly, obviously microwaved... More

It's not Spain, but this restaurant makes a very decent presentation of a tapas selection. It has a nice dining area/bar, and it seems popular with the locals - always a good sign. It's tucked away in the east of town, quite remote, so you need to intend to go there.

Very dissapointed about the food. No creativity at all. Very (below) average quality. Much better restaurants in Bruges!

We visited here one night for drinks, and liked what the menu had to offer, so returned the next night for dinner. We were a party of five and ordered several different tapas dishes to try. Between all of us we tried fried asparagus, kabobs, grilled prawns, chorizo sausage, fried squid, olives, and the meal was served with bread. It... More

25 Years working around the food scene and having eaten tapas both at the hands of the best in the UK and Barcelona, I can only say that this in no way reflects the experience I would expect. No wonder the front of house guy never asked if we were happy.... he was obviously too embarrassed ! In a town... More

We only found this place on our last night in Bruges, and we loved it...Sometimes Tapas bars can be a little confusiing, but the menu was very clear, and we were advised that 2 tapas each would be enough for 2 people, which it was..Cooked to a very high quality, great building and ambience...highly recommended.
