We made a pit stop here during a walk through El Medano. We ate a couple of tapas, sitting inside to avoid the strong wind that's usual around here it seems. A shared bottle of water, media raciones de patatas bravas and croquetas de bacalao y jamón. Passable quality though the patatas bravas weren't authentic and the potato on the hard side. Four small croquetas was perhaps slightly on the mean side too.

Still, acceptable enough I thought.

Our first visit to El Medano in 30 plus years and although the resort has grown larger it has not lost its laid back feel. There are lots of bars and restaurants offering good food but the Imperio del Pintxo stood out for us as one of the friendlier ones. Some gave service rather begrudgingly but this little place on the seafront was welcoming. We usually sample Sangria wherever we eat at lunch time but here was the best and very competitively priced. Favourites off the menu were the prawns in garlic with olive and tomato, the calamari Caesar salad and the crispy octopus. Definitely one to recommend.

We have been used to eating at another Tapas place in el Medano, but due to this going a little downhill, he tried Imperio del Pintxo for the first time, and we will definitely be back, infact we're heading back there tonight :)

The Crazy king prawns, are the tastiest thing I've ever had, the portions are a great size, and the service is happy and easy :)

We had, 2 cokes & 2 sparking waters, large portion of the prawns, squids, canaries potatoes, baked cheese and bread with ailioli and all came to 32euro :)

I've been twice during my stay in el Medano. The food is good, in both cases we had fish dishes and we liked them as they were tasty but not heavy. A very nice dessert was a revisited version of a 'mango cheesecake' ! Two/three mains plus two beers and a dessert were around 30 euros. The service is very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend it.
