Authentic spanish dishes with large selection, close to the beach at the heart of St Julian's. Tapas is highly recommended.

We had a mixed plate of meat and cheese and it wasn't particularly inspiring for 16 euros. The staff were nice enough and the drinks were reasonably priced. We are staying in the intercontinental so it was very convenient. Probably wouldn't go back.More

Veg paella was disaster, but everything else we've ordered was testy. The wine was good as well. Waiters friendly and skillful. The place definitely needs refurbishing - the sits were dirtiest I've ever seen.
