Lange Niezel 29 (622 30 50).
Formica tables, fluorescent lighting and stacked beer crates all contribute to the authentic Spanish atmosphere of this popular restaurant in the heart of the Red Light district. Diners wait for a table on low barstools facing the mouthwatering tapas display. The delicious dishes are served in a hectic but friendly way, by Spanish waiters clad in traditional black-and-white. Very reasonable prices. No reservations. That is, they'll take you're reservation but you'll have to wait anyway!
Open daily 1pm-11pm.
