Good tapas here, the owner was very enthusiastic and wanted us to try everything, so we pretty much did! He kept bringing dishes of tapas until we had to say no more. Worth a visit for sure. 6 of us ate, 2 bottles of wine and waters all round, came in just around 20 euros a head....

A wonderful evening in the care of Alfonso. A authentic Tapas bar, with a warmth and charm. I visit San Pedro several times a year and now that I have found this lovely bar I will be back. See you later this year Alfonso. David.

Stumbled across this authentic Spanish tapas bar when strolling around looking for somewhere to eat. Alfonso, Carmen and the team were very hospitable and went out of their way to explain the different tapas on offer. The dishes were brought out quickly and there was a good variety, prawn pil pil, serrano ham, Russian salad, frittata, chicken with peppers, tuna... More

Small and cozy Tapas restaurant run by the owner. Good ambiance and acceptable prices. Much of the offered veggies are home grown. Recommended.

This is a very nice place for some iberian ham, tapas or bigger portions. Very nice, friendly professional service. Good music upstairs and fantastic drinks at the bar.

Sinceramente uno de mis sitios favoritos para ir a cenar y tomar unas copas!!! El sitio es encantador, típica bodega con decoración andaluza y unos dueños fantásticos, Alfonso y Carmen, que te hacen sentir como en casa. Recomiendo el jamón que es de primerísima calidad y el tomate con melva; buenos vinos y a un buen precio! Recomendable 100%. This... More

Very Spanish with great food great wine and even a Spanish singer thrown in. Thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived fairly early but later on it got packed out mostly by the Spanish which is a good sign.

It was a treat to find this hidden gem in San Pedro.The food was great quality and great flavors. The sharing plates are perfect for all. There is no menu only chefs dishes of the day. We had the tastiest tomatoes with garlic and onions, and then a great combination of mushrooms, artichokes and Serrano ham. And to follow Oxtail... More
