Tapas

Traditionally, tapas are served with an alcoholic drink (beer, wine or sherry) in Spanish cafés in order to increase your appetite. Especially in Andalusia and the Spanish inland it is custom to serve one or multiple tapas when ordering a beverage.

When we serve tapas we will continuously be preparing different kinds of fish, meat and vegetable varieties. In advance we will discuss the amount of food that will be served and at what intervals new dishes should arrive. It can be anything you like: either just a few small bites accompanying a drink or an entire meal that consists out of tiny dishes.
