Touristic location, but not a touristic place. It is kind of shabby (some people may call it authentic...). Food is bar food and nothing special. Service is nice/people are friendly. It was empty of tourists and of locals. Avoid, unless in a big group of...More

We had a great time. Very friendly bar staff and what appeared to be some of the locals just playing their guitars and mandolins all night. Wonderful atmosphere.

Got there and there was one tuno and the Barman. We asked about whether there was anything going on or not. Apart from a super smug and conceited air in the response, they just didn't answer truthfully. They said "anything can happen" just to later...More

Great old cavernous place between plaza mayor and la Latina. Personal touch by staff, if you can get past the loud American Airlines staff.

Stopped in on a Thursday evening while strolling with my husband for a quick drink... The men were playing their guitars at the front table and just having a great time!! The music was great and the beer was cold, delicious and very reasonable!!

Great atmosphere, great tapas, reasonable prices, efficient staff. Definitely worth a visit! Live guitar at weekends but this weekend we were lucky enough to go at the same time as a group of chaps on their annual uni reunion. Fun and fab music and singing!

The food is typical tapas: croquettes, sliced ham, regional cheeses, etc. On weekends there is live guitar music, and on weekdays, guitar performers and students hang out in the evening, and may decide to play impromptu. Located in a very neat cellar with brick archways...More

Friendly staff, very helpful even though neither of us spoke the others language. Tapas delicious, beer good. Impromptu music as people dropped by and struck up a tune. Also a resident guitarist/ singer. No negatives at all.

restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
