Had tapas lunch with friends. Food was excellent, we had the olives, the garlic prawns, the pork belly, and the pate. Would recommend all of them. The recommended Spanish wine (Rojo Granicha) was delicious. Not cheap, but good value. Highly recommended.

Overlooking one of many waterways, this is an excellent venue for lunch. It occupies quite a large space, with well-spaced tables and a variety of seating options. The menu is short, divided between perhaps 6 tapas, a similar number of raciones, or entrée-sized dishes, mains...More

The spacious dining room is glamorous and comfortable, casual but with a sense of occasion. The drinks list offers a good range of food-friendly Spanish wines you can browse the collection in the dramatic glass wine cellar. Service is friendly and competent, the view is delightful and the food is very good. But it's the satisfaction of finding a hidden treasure that elevates Puerto's appeal - Age Good Food Guide 2016
