Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Zelai
The word zelai means “field” in Basque, but nowhere could look less countrified than this very elegant modern tapas bar and restaurant.
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.
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.
The service is excellent and professional.
It is just behind the Plaza Nueva.
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.
