Just what the doctor ordered. Real tapas, next to the market, so assume fresh products; served by a bunch of old guys, all enjoying themselves. Lots of choice, all good. Nothing posh, all about the taste.

We had an assortment of tapas, the seafood salad was delicious with plenty of octupus on it and the meatballs were very tasty too. A busy little place and I can see why!

No admitirá reservas, es un bar de tapas que vive de la rotación de las mesas y no guardará ninguna de ellas. De todas formas es bastante rápido, no deberías tener problemas en coger mesa.
