Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Zelai

Gorgeous gourmet tapas in a chic central location.

The word zelai means “field” in Basque, but nowhere could look less countrified than this very elegant modern tapas bar and restaurant.

Food and drink: 

Beautifully presented, the tapas are as pleasing to the eye as to the palate. I absolutely adore the grilled baby eels with salmon roe. Other favourites include the octopus salad and kobe beef burger (amazing chips!). There's a full-service restaurant at the back in a pretty glassed-in patio.

Ambience: 

It is clean and modern, with a stand-up tapas section at the front, sit-down tapas area in front of the bar and a restaurant on the patio at the back. It can get quite busy at peak times as it is a favourite with locals.

Service: 

The service is excellent and professional.

Location: 

It is just behind the Plaza Nueva.

Price advice: 

Designer tapas at designer prices, averaging at 4 euros. There is also nice house wine for 2 euros a glass. In the restaurant expect to pay 40-50 euros per person with a bottle of wine.
