Very good for a light lunch, but best to go early to avoid the crowds at this very busy tapas bar. Good selection of tapas at very reasonable prices. A good way to spend time in the Santa Cruz area. Recommended

It’s amazing how attentive the servers are during a busy period. We were given an English menu and decent service for such a busy place. Food was simple, delicious, and quick. Highly recommended for a quick snack for lunch.

Our guide had us stop for a local summer drink of red wine and lemonade. It is a small bar/restaurant with a menu written on a blackboard. With great food and great prices get there early.

Local, authentic full of regulars. Packed all the time, there were hundreds when we visited on a Saturday , spilling onto the street. Amazing atmosphere and unbelievably easy to get served. A must visit.

Great place with loads of atmosphere. The guys behind the bar move at 100mph so don’t be surprised if they don’t stop to ask how your holiday’s going! They had run out of a lot of the tapas dishes we wanted to try but it...More
