If you want a real taste of Spain go here of the beaten track! Cheap as chips but freshly cooked authentic Spanish food. It's a must on your trip. The have an open BBQ where meat and fish is freshly cooked! Don't miss it!

We have been going to this restaurant and bar for many years, and it never disappoints. It is a typical Spanish bar, noisy, lots of locals, televisions showing the football: don't expect four-star comfort! Service is brisk, food comes quickly - mostly seafood, fresh as...More

I agree with Dario, its off season so not necessary to book, just turn up! Its an informal bar and restaurant together, plenty of locals.
