Really enjoyed this find. Lots of locals. Great price, tasty food. 10 euros for 4 drinks and 4 tapas. Loved it.

Looks very ordinary from the outside, and it is much like any other standard tapas hang out, except it has mastered the art of speed and value. A warm welcome awaits - it’s generally most popular with Spanish families although the menu has an English translation. Consider yourself warned though - the staff on the night we visited appeared not to speak any English at all. Be prepared to deploy your best Spanglish to negotiate the array of deals. Our crude efforts were greeted with patience and appreciation. The basics are: every round of drinks comes with three free tapas which you can choose yourself from the extensive list. Alternatively there are buckets of beer bottles and rosca deals and raciones. It’s all the usual stuff - albondigas and calamares galore delivered super-simple and super-fast. We had 3xtapas and raciones of albondigas and padron peppers which was enough for two adults, a four-year-old and a baby. We were so stuffed we turned down the second run of free tapas that would have come with the second round of drinks. All this plus an ice cream weighed in at about €33. Lovely atmosphere, service and tons of no-frills tapas at a great price. Tapas as it should be - not a fine dining faff but a tasty and simple social activity. Goes without saying kids are welcome and decor is very authentically Spanish with good loos.

Meson La Cabana is the textbook example that good cuisine is sufficient to attract people. The simple design with wooden tables and chairs does not appeal to the imagination, and yet people are queuing in the hope to find a table. This restaurant offers simple but very tasty meals that are offered at a bottom price. Another advantage is the large choice from which one can choose. Meson La Cabana is without any doubt one of the best restaurants in terms of value for money that I've already visited.

This restaurant is located near the main entrance of the botanical garden and just a few hundred meters from both the beach and the city center. It is open from 13:00 - 16:00 and from 20:00 - 00:00. Meson La Cabana is closed on Tuesday.

We had just a short visit at La Cabana, but it was different from other placer because of the tapas. A high quality menu with lots of free tapas i.e. when you buy a drink. Hamburgers, tortillas, sandwiches etc were options. Four people four drinks plus free tapas - and we paid Euro 8.
