Food was good, but we found the service somewhat lacking compared to the other restaurants we used. Seemed to be a bit like being on a conveyor belt! As the waiters were taking the orders of the tables near the front they were more interested in trying to entice new people in than pay attention to the ones they already had! Meal was nice but we wouldnt go back as there are nicer places.

After reading the great reviews we decended late on Tuesday evening to partake in some food. On arrival the restrauant was quiet so we asked to be seated at the front of the restrauant, however it appeared to be a little trouble to put three tables together as there was six of us. we were seated by the kitchen which was ok ! The food is good With a good selection of meat and fish I had Filet Migon, cooked perfectly, however the critism I have is why does this typical spanish restrauant serve processed veg. Would I return, YES if I was on the Atkins Diet.

The waiter suggested that we had the fish of the day, but having had tapas here before, we decided to stick with that and weren't disappointed. There was a great selection of things to chose from, and they were brought out in 2 goes to save the food getting too cold. My only criticism would be that the dates in bacon which we've had on several previous visits and have been our favourites when eating here were overcooked...not sure that I'd go for that again, but everything else was great. Would certainly recommend (and it's a great place to people watch as it's on the main road through the town.) Good value for money.

We tried Tipico Espanol after reading the TA reviews and agree with all the positive comments, so much so that we ate here 4 times during our holiday. We sampled the Young bull chop (massive !) Spanish chicken, fresh fish & seafood selection, a selection of tapas and the mixed Paella. The food was always excellent and really good value for money and the restaurant staff friendly & helpful. We loved it

Restaurant is just off of the main road and you can eat inside or on the terrace. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Good value for money - six had a main course, drinks and a sweet for under 90 euros.
