Tapas Restaurant
$$$
“Hotshot chef Carles Abellán runs this basement tapas haven known for its gourmet versions of old faves. Highlights include the bikini (toasted ham and cheese sandwich – here the ham is cured and the truffle makes all the difference) and zesty boquerones al limón (lemon-marinated anchovies). You can’t book but it's worth the wait.”

“beautiful restaurant but during the weekend I recommend you to go there in advance and leave your name at the reception 40 min in advance, then they will call you (20-30 euro). Recommended dishes: Uevos cabreado, pulpo alla gallega (Galician style octopus), bacalao con miel tomate y alli oli (codfish with honey, tomatoes and alli oli sause), pincho con gamba y calamares (skewer with shrimps and calamares); ”
