This was a great recommendation by our tour guide. Five of us shared plates of croquettes, mussels, clams, tortilla (potato and egg), grilled local peppers, and salad. Exceptional service during the busiest time. We took our time and enjoyed the atmosphere, close to the Cathedral and the Alameda Park (less than 10 min walk). Seafood was very fresh.

Excellent tapas meal with larger than regular tapas portions. Delicious food at reasonable prices. The usual selection but better. The little prawns, the calamari, the chorizo were all exceptional and the bill was very modest.

What made this place special for us was the staff - all lovely, friendly, helpful people - nothing was too much trouble. Very reasonably priced, excellent quality and lovely atmosphere.
