We had visited La Cueva quite a few times over a period of 25 years and always liked the place. This time was a huge disappointment. The place has been turned into a money making machine. Prices at the upper limit of what tapas should...More

The tapas we tried were just ok. We did artichokes soaked in garlic and wine which were wonderful. The bread was homemade and excellent. The prawns were ok, just mushy. The machengo cheese was ok. The croquettes were the best of anything. Of course the...More

Sa Volta and La Cueva were two adjoining Tapas bars owned and run by the Nieto brothers. (I think their parents established them.) Sa Volta was TINY but they have now connected the two bars and they are packed out every night. The food is incredible. The service is excellent.
