Comfortable and clean but average service and average food. Not stand out in any way but perfectly pleasant

We came here first because of Trip Advisor reviews and proximity to the hotel we were staying in. We came back twice more because of the tapas!
If you don't speak Spanish (we speak Spanglish!) then, at least familiarise yourself with menus in advance. We managed because it was coming to the end of our holiday so we'd learnt a bit!
They didn't always have everything on the menu. OK, they never had everything on the menu, we never managed to get patatas bravas but what we did eat was delicious and, as is so often the case in this part of Spain, very reasonably priced.

We went to eat there around 8pm with a couple friends. I discovered they had some ribs with chimichurri sauce. I didn't know what chimichurri was, but the ribs were delicious. I came back 3 other times and had the ribs. Service was great and by the time we left around 10pm, the place was packed full. We did a group dinner there one night with around 10 of us and the guy from Spain kept ordering Tapas. We all had our fill and the total was only $13 each.

We actually live near the Rincon de Basi so it crossed my mind not leaving a review as it's getting hard to book a table. But the food is so good, the staff so friendly and the value excellent so it would be rude not to. It's a little outside the city center in Almeria but well worth a visit if you are in the area around the Shopping Center.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel receptionist and it was exactly what we were looking for.
Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere, affordable, quiet place.
We had 3 half dishes (enough food), including a shrimp fideo and a steak tartar. Everything recommended by our waiter and everything a delicious surprise. Even the wine was very good.
The bill was 35€ for two, quite inexpensive considering the experience.
