Tapas as it should be. Be brave, if your Spanish is as bad as mine worry not, the staff are fantastic and will try very hard to understand. Great value, great theatre and great location.

Thank you for recommending us to your friends! It is important to convey the Balbino legacy so that we continue to be the gastronomic reference of Sanlúcar. If you go for lunch ask for the dish of the day You will not be disappointed!

The best authentic tapas in the region in high quality. A must to go there. Normally very crowded during summer time and ferias. I'd recommend the 'tortillitas de camarones' as they are the very best. Nice typical manzanilla and wines. Very friendly and amusing staff.
