Because I love Chuletas I usually order them when I visit an spanish restaurant. And Par de Chuletilla exceeded my expectations, they where amazing! Also the environment and the service was nice! I can wait to come back and have another Par de Chuletillas!

I really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere in the restaurant makes you feel pleased to spend your time there. We ordered 6 tapas in total, from which 4 of them (Serranoham, chicken, gambas and octopus) were really tasty. If you combine it with the red...More

I enjoy quality tapas but was mildly disappointed in the variety and quality of their offerings. I would only revisit in a pinch.

Tapas and co excellent, good wines, just to avoid the German sausages and so on. But very noisy, at a certain point we had to escape for the sake of our hearing.

The Tapas was very good, I particularly liked the olives! They were fully booked so we sat at the stols in the bar/corridor area, the staff were extremely friendly, service was quick, the food was of good quality and given how busy it was there...More

Whether you sit in the restaurant or in the bar or in the garden, it doesn't matter. They only serve tapas. Good stuff, but no need to get lyric or ecstatic about it. Nice building, friendly and fast service. Otherwise, just tapas.
