In Spain, Tapas is not just food; it’s a way of life! Having started out as simple nibbles at the side of the bar to accompany a good glass of sherry, wine, sangria or even a crisp cerveza.
It is a lovely way to eat, a relaxed and sociable get-together carrying with it a hint of the traditional chilled out Spanish unhurried way of life.
Please enjoy our little ray of Spanish Sunshine here in Picaderos.
