El Rey has moved from the Kruittorenweg to Woerden's castle very close to the railway station and the city center. Easy to reach and a great ambiance. The service is excellent. Large choice of meat, fish and vegetarian tapas. Not too expensive.

I like the variation of tapas and they taste equally good. Great service and a cosy restaurant. The dessert was really really good (lemon curd pie). I only wish they had a greater winelist.

Lovely restaurant where the food is always good and the atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. Lovely menu with a wide choice and the coctails are to die for! My favorite place to go out for a meal when I visit!

We have been several times to El Rey and every time the food was delicious! Nice Spanish cuisine with different twists, good Sol Beer and friendly staff. Definitely a nice restaurant when you are in Woerden!

When all else was full, me and my girlfriend ended up here. We had a nice tapas dinner, at a good price. It was a bit fatty, but perhaps that is our poor choice of tapas. Personell is friendly, and the place itself is nice.

Thank Ramon_vd_Werf
