We had a great time outside El Galeo. The waitresses kept coming to our table with delicious warm tapas (1,50-4,00 eur per plate), the riocha della casa (2,50 per glass) was really good and the staff was warm and helpful. Awesome night!

It delivered what I always imagined a real tapas experience should be: simple but tasty snacks that are enjoyed with a drink in a good atmosphere. The place can get very crowded and often there is a line, but I guess... More

I came here with some European friends who wanted to try Spanish tapas. It was the best. There were a lot of traditional and more fancy version of tapas. The location was perfect. I recommended 100%
