We had diner and lunch here this week. We always come here when we are around. The tapas are simple and good and so are the prices. Best tapas around.

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.
