After reading so many positive review of this place I was rather disappointed with the food that was on offer, we came here yesterday evening hoping to taste the good tapas all the other people's rave reviews suggested but honestly either I live on another parallel universe or the chef was having an off day. There was hot and cold... More

They bring plates around to your table and you can choose to partake or not. At the end they add up toothpicks, skewers, and plates to total your bill. Everything we had was fresh and tasty.

Not on the sea front but about 50 metres away but worth a visit despite its less prominent position. There are cheaper tapas around but these must be the best made and nicest in town..Place perhaps lacks atmosphere when quite so choose your time carefully. Evenso a treat even if on your own.

A hidden gem for such a reasonably priced tapas bar so near to the main promenade. The variety of food is unbelievable and the menu shows how much each plate costs I.e. Sword 3 euros wooden stick 2 euros. The staff are very helpful and will advise on each dish. In the evenings the staff come to each table With... More

We walked on not knowing what to expect and were suddenly surprised to see waiters walking around offering different Tapas The idea is you take what you want and pay according to the cocktail stick that's in the tapa Great. Good Food really I've attached a picture of the stick prices

Great way to eat tapas. We just sat on terrace and plates of high quality food was served to our table. If you didn't like something you just said no thanks.

The best tapas bar in Marbella, have been there several times, really very nice and not expensive. You can choose either from the card, from the desk where you asee some of the tapas, but the waiters walk around all the time with new fresh made tapas which you can grab or not and they charge you for each pin....

Are here twice during our week in Marbella. Located in a short street full of eating places it was clearly popular as busy when others were virtually empty. The staff were great, helpful and pleasant; first night we visited the young lady who appeared to be in charge went out of her way to make a space for us. The... More

Terrific variety. Go on a busy night, go a little early to get a good spot to get the best pick--take a look what is coming out before you start your selection-it's easy to spend alot if you are not careful. Be sure to understand the pricing system since it changed in the last couple of years. Not your typical... More

Visited on a busy Friday evening but nevertheless were greeted warmly by staff and new table and chairs brought over to us very promptly. Lovely food and good service. Altogether a nice experience and a good introduction to tapas for some of our party.
