Loved this place, the staff were very friendly and helpful, making sure that you were ok with what you were ordering from their traditional Spanish menu. The food was excellent, service superb and restaurant very clean with a lovely local atmosphere, thank you.

We had a great selection of traditional tapas when we ate here late one evening in August. The services was great, food very tasty and good selection of Spanish beers and wine.

I liked it here. The staff were really nice, friendly and helpful. The food is very good. Once again, we ordered tapas, but the portions were very generous...struggled to finish everything. Very centrally located, but then everything in Archidona is.

A good restaurant?? Tapas were not good at all....we came from Seville and did some nice restaurants but this was really not good at all. The tapas were not fresh. If you like nice traditional food, stay away...

Solid restaurant but a limited menu due to the Feria. The pulpo was very tasty and my husband loved the boquerones. We sat outside and were entertained by some locals singing and dancing.

I am no expert, but I suspect this is as authentic an Andalucian 'local' as you can get. There is a very broad reaching menu. The staff speak next to no English, but there is an English menu. 4 of us had a beer each an d more food than we could comfortably eat for under €50-00! Better than that... More
