Mesón de la Flota

Lonely Planet review

This nautically themed tapas bar/restaurant might have been transported from Cádiz's Barrio de Santa María, so potent is the atmosphere. Old-world tapas include garbanzos con chorizo (chickpeas with sausage), calamari and tortilla, but there are also more substantial seafood-biased platos principales (main meals).

For music lovers the real drawcard is the nightly tablaos (flamenco shows), the quality of which could rival anything in Andalusia. Sit back and soak up the intangible spirit of duende (climactic moment in a flamenco concert inspired by the fusion of music and dance).
