Three of us had lunch here. It's about 15 minutes outside central Marbella. First impression is that this is popular with Spanish people and that's a good sign. Paella, salads, boquerones, all fantastic. Prices really reasonable. Good athmosphere. I recommend.

Lovely place for Tapas with the locals. Was busy every night and this was mid January!! Don't know if the laws are different in Spain,but there outside?area is really inside,and customers can smoke. The area is totall enclosed to the outside. If you don't like smoking while ur dining,you may want to reconsider. Staff are great,so is food

Excellent selection of tapas, but beware the recommended ham as, although very nice, it is expensive. Service very good, prices generally reasonable.

This really is a nice place and we come here often... it is like the village meeting point for spanish tapas in Elviria. The only thing you should know is not to accept the waiter's first suggestion of 'shall we start with some jamon serrano?'... always the most expensive item on the menu. Shame, as it makes it feel like... More

A proper Spanish tapas bar full of locals & tourists. Very good quality and selection. Busy and efficient waiters. So efficient that we continued to order past our own requirements which made for an expensive evening; but well worth it.

Had Tapas here today for lunch, octopus, prawns and clams. All very tasty. The place was very busy with locals and tourists (like myself) alike. Been to this area for years but first time we popped in. Will be going back

Great place to go for either a quick snack of tapas dishes or for a full meal. Tables inside or on the terrace, which opens onto the 'plaza' where children can safely run around and play.

There is not really much to say, except that it is a fine restaurant. We went 8 people, and the service was still top-notch, except for one day, where they were really busy. The only reason for not given 5 stars, is that it was nothing supreme. Just good food at acceptable prices. Recommended.
