We chose the tapas plate with 7 different kinds of tapas. It was nice that you could choose the tapas self from the menu. All of them were really tasty and well prepared. For the price of 21 euros the plate was really good and authentic Spanish. This is a family owned place with a nice athmosphere. We were satisfied.... More

I had a mixed grill it was so big couldn"t eat it all.John had Pork in a mushroom sauce. It was quite the evening we went only a few in.It did"nt matter . The service was very good and the house white was fine. Do like the table cloth"s and proper cloth napkins it makes all the difference.

We found this place by accident. We came off the beach for lunch and turned left instead of right, and what a find this was. My friend and I are veggie (although I eat fish) and tapas is often too meaty. However we had wonderful choices. We decided to do the wheel which was 7 pieces of tapas for 22€.... More

Had a couple of dinners here on our recent visit to PDC. Nice to find a real family run Spanish restaurant with genuine freshly cooked food. The service was always friendly and efficient. The Tapas wheel for two was particularly good value at 22 euros for 8 items you select for yourself from the menu. It was also a handy... More

We went in for the 3 course menu after being told the soup of the day was chicken. Unfortunately when we came to order we were told it was seafood so we opted for garlic bread. We both had the fish as the main course which was quite nice. However, the cost of a pint of lager was €3.50. Most... More
