I find the reviews for this place quite amazing , as the food and service leave a lot to be desired. Firstly the tapas are not free, the cost of a caña is inflated and after ordering a couple of raciones from the menu we...More

I totally recommend this restaurant in Cuenca. You ask for some drinks and food is included. I was with some friends and it's perfect!

It's a good idea to pay a visit and take at least a beer. You pay a bit more and get a lot of food for the cost of a "caña". All around this places it's a lovely environment and enough quite to middle aged...More

I travelled the Andalusia & Castilla La Mancha region and also discovered Cuenca. We went there due to a recommendation from a local. It was truly truly authentic tapas! The place itself is small and cosy! Owner is super friendly and the tapas... Superb! I...More
