Nobody can do tapas as well as Spaniards, well? This small "taller de tapas" on the sea front in Medano is run by Spaniards who were brought up in Texas. It was been open for only a couple of years but has already one a major competition for the best tapa. The food is fab and the prices are good so you don't feel ripped off for example water at €0.90 and coffee at €1.10. Great value will keep coming back for more. Try the huevos rotos, fantastico!

Food is very average but not the worst We tried in other places in El Medano. Before 15:00 You can seat in the sun later only shadow. The biggest advantage is good service and singing waiter
