La Tapadera
The Spanish go-to bistro

La Tapadera is open from Wednesday to Sunday and serves the best authentic Spanish Tapas in town. At lunchtime you'll find a delicious variation of Spanish sandwiches, bocadillos, with chorizo and cheese, a cubanito and cocas, an open sandwich with a choice of meat, fish or veggy.


In the evening, this restaurant is a feast for the tapas lover as typical Spanish tapas, patatas bravas, boquerones, gamba's and pollo al ajillo are well-matched with nice wines, tinto de verano or the typical Spanish kalimotxo, highly recommended on hot summer days.
