You are tired and hungry after a long walk or day in Granada and you don't want to eat the same average tapas in a typical touristic place as all the others? Stop searching any longer. This place is simply great. Small, full, loud and noisy, full of locals and fantastic tapas. When they speak about half portions it easily... More

It was late for lunch even by Spanish standards but we managed to eat the house specialty of Roast Jamon.....i could see into the kitchen and a leg of pork as rotating on a spit similar to a kebab type of spit. The meat was beautiful and the beer was cold.....just what was called for after the drive from Seville.... More

I highly suggest to come here if you are in the neighbourhood. Tapas are big an beer is cold so perfect! The taste of the tapas was good so we expect also the dishes too!

Great little bar, quick and efficient. Great tapa, we loved the jamon asado, which is roast pork served on a piece of bread. Really nice and the chorizo is good too. The rejos, octopus legs, looked great too and were flying out of the kitchen. Worth stopping by for a beer and a tapas.

My order was completely forgotten and I had to wait for ages. Completely unapologetic about it. Well just a cheap eatery but attitude was bad. Average taste at most I would say.

There are so many fresh ingredients in this wonderful city, yet each tapas we ordered seemed to be only barely basic with nothing fresh. We aren't sure why others rated this so highly, but we did not find it so great.

We were visiting the Alhambra and came down to the city centre of Granada for a taste of tapas. Asked around and were went here. Just great - atmosphere. One tapas (free) including a beer for 6Eu. We didn't know how the place worked but people were really helpful - customers and staff alike. Would go back.
