Found this place due to tripadvisor recommendations otherwise we'd never have found it hidden up a back street. It's small, cramped even, with wall to wall photos of customers, and very Spanish. Two free tapas with every drink (even a small beer). They boast 155...More

Legendary tapas - you buy a small beer or wine and they give you the most extravagant tapas I have ever seen (and I have lived in Spain for ten years!) The official address is calle Fray Luis de Leon but all the locals know...More
