Great food for more than 31 years. What a great place to eat. I was visiting this place in the 80's, 90's, 2000's and I was there last week. I am amazed of the bad reviews...if you wa t tapas... don't go here... if you want raciones (plates) of food, this is the place. The prices are good compared to... More

I would like to advice everyone against eating here!! the service wasn't great, neither was the quality of the food and the price is definitely much to high compared to other, much better, tapas bars in the area.

We have been going to this place for the last few years with family and friends. The decor inside is really old school and neat to look at. We really enjoy having a cold beer at the bar and enjoying the generous tapas. Also the albondigas are wonderful!

We thought we'de visit this restaurant as it had a couple of good reviews,but it seems as though these couple of good reviews unfortunately seem to have got the the enormous heads of the restaurant staff and waiters (at least the ones "involved" in serving us. We popped in at Saturday lunch time and it was very, very busy, as... More

After reading the reviews here, I was a little disappointed by Las Cuadras de Rocinante. The service was good, but even a bit too quick - I felt that we were rushed through our meal even though the place wasn't particularly busy. The raciones were on the small side for the price, and nothing above average. Lovely decor and atmosphere... More

There are also tables outside but we preferred to be inside.House wine was about 3-4 euros for a jug for 4 people and tapas were all great value for money and delicious. We really recommend... More

The meal of the day is quite nice although if you don´t like fried and battered then find somewhere else to go. The food was good though and the cod was very lightly battered and quite nice. The dishes were all fairly tasty, the waiter was very helpful and it was lovely sitting outside.

We were taken here by Spanish friends, and after having tried a couple of other tapas bars in the town were delighted by this gem. Fantastic atmosphere was twinned with great service, very quick but also not rushed. It was busy as we ate on a Sunday lunchtime, but the rustic home made tapas went down very well. Each drink...
