It's the second time we go there, and I'm happy we went back as I had a mitigated feeling after our first visit. The first time it was recommended to us, and we were there as a couple.

Different hams of various quality can be ordered and cut infront of you. The local is very rustic and nice. Friendly but slow service, this is really a place to have a glass of wine and some ham but not much more. Nice enough though..

We decided to go to this restaurants after reading many trip advisor reviews, all indicating the slow service but good quality food. I must say it was a bit of a nightmare to get a table, the place is very understaffed. We waited 45 min to get seated.. but once we ordered the food arrived fast, and most important; it... More

Amazing meet fest Tapas,good wine and some of the best cheese we've had for a long time and all at an affordable price. Eating out in the street enjoying the ambience of the town not classy but Classic. A real treat if real is what you are looking for.

This restaurant is on Calle Caridad, east of the town centre. It is a friendly local bar, serving a broad range of local hams and other tapas. Everything we chose was delicious, and very good value.

This wonderful bar introduced traditional Spanish flavored to our family. My friend and I asked for the best ham. The owner walked us back to the bar and explained. He quoted a price, we misunderstood and thought he was suggesting a 75€ plate of ham. He actually recommended an 8€ plate! The service was great and food was wonderful. What... More

Been coming here for 15 years. The jamon de bellotas and the quest manchego cannot be beaten. Lovely little bar with tables outside on a pedestrian used street. A tapas bar for locals and tourists with hams hanging from th ceiling.

What a fantastic place. Great family service in a fabulous atmospheric bar in an old part of Estepona. The ham is fantastic.

This is an absolute must if you want a true Andalusian experience, they have the very best selection of Spanish hams to be enjoyed ~ especially if accompanied by rustic toast with tomato and oil, washed down with half a bottle of freezing cold manzanilla sherry.
