We had a range of different tapas and all were excellent. None of us in the group speaks much Spanish but the waitress was very helpful and she also had some menus in English to help us. We only found this place through the reviews on trip advisor as it's not on the Main Street, but it's definitely worth visiting.

Absolutely excellent, good food and good service. We were two couples, 3 Spanish & one English, had the tapas menu. Very difficult for a restaurant to get every single course correct, & please every person,but they did. You will not be disappointed

Their classical tapas are excellent!! The "botifarra 1730" and "Ous trencats amb patates" were splendid.

Great tapas of good Quality and Taste. Interior is nice, large tables compared to other locations, nice counter with cold topas. They have Spanish and English menu. The service is professonal. One of the better places for tapas! One negative point: I would not recommend the fried fish bundle (see photo), this was less good then the rest.

Here you can taste a lot fo tapas, the typical tapas (patatas bravas, galician... More

You should remember to get lemon to the calemars a la Romana 😉 but I can... More

Very good tapas, and also good price. The ambient it's so good and the staff it's so friendly. I'm not sure they speak English. If you go for lunch during the week, nice menu with good price. If not, you must choose from the Carta, but there's good variety and good prices.
