Food and drink
On offer here is tuna, and more tuna. All of it cooked a su punto and all of it mouthwateringly good. My personal favourites are the tuna tataky, tartare and brochettes. And besides several veggy salad options there is a gorgeous warm octopus salad served on a bed of potato purée and miso. If you're not in the mood for seafood, try the filo triangles filled with black pudding or the thick cut of grilled pork tenderloin.
It's a very cosy place, with several different rooms on two floors, as well as a small terrace on the pedestrianised street. My favourite table is in front of the big front window. The decor is quite traditional in warm oranges and cool greys, with lots of Spanish modern art on the walls.
Service can seem a bit aloof at first, but don't let this put you off. By the time you've had your starter you'll be feeling very welcome and at home.
It is right in the heart of Santa Cruz.
Tapas range from 3-5 euros, with dinner costing about 40-50 euros per person including wine.
