There was already a queue here at 8:30 pm when they opened their doors, and the minute everyone poured in, the beer started flowing and the smell of freshly fried fish wafted throughout the bar. This location is the old school one - just a few tables, mostly a long bar and a few nooks and crannies to stand in. You drink your beer, shout out what you want, or just wait for the free dishes that come with each drinks round. The menu is cheap and heavy on the seafood, especially the fried variety, and it is pretty glorious. We first got some lush boquerones - fried anchovies - clearly they had just been fried that minute, with perfectly crisp batter. They needed a hint of lemon and salt, but this isn't the kind of place where you ask for things like that! With the next round we got some kind of fried white fish pieces and they were meltingly tender, hot, and lovely.
I wouldn't want to hang out here all night, as its absolutely rammed, but if you come early you can manage to stand by the bar and have a few dishes before moving on your way. I still don't understand how these places can give you so much free food and stay in business, especially when the food is so good. Clearly a local favourite, not sure we saw any tourists there.
