When we returned to the car nothing was apparently amiss, all was still locked. But when we returned to our rental villa, we discovered the loss. So BEWARE OF CLEVER THIEVES. IT PUT A... More

Great place to sit and relax have a drink and get a free tapas for each drink you have - good choice of hot or cold tapas. The meals brought to other tables looked very good - do a menu of the day as well.

Love this place. Run by very friendly family, Antonio the owner, his son Antonio and several other family members. Gets very busy so get there early for lunch. Lots of choice for tapas and menu. House Rioja very good. Menu Del Dia €9. Big helpings. Been coming here for over 15 years. Favourite sun spot for lunch.

We came here for the first time, because of the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. We don't understand how most reviewers claim this restaurant to be "excellent". It is not bad, but it's not very good either. We ate the menu del dia. The fish dishes were probably frozen food, since they were very bland and watery. The meat with tomato... More
