Really enjoyed dinner here with friends. Extremely friendly and attentive service. Choice of tapas was excellent - we had 12 different ones between 4 of us and it was ample. Thoroughly recommend this place!

We did a bit of a taster session with all the local eateries whilst in the lakes and this was our favourite for wine! We sat back and relaved in a lovely atmosphere with a lovely red.

We managed to book a table at El Porton for Friday night which was great, as it was very busy. The food is Spanish tapas and offers an interesting variety of food; we had cured meats, a selection of cheeses, paella and meatballs. Perhaps slightly understaffed, but if you don’t mind waiting a little longer (like we did) then it’s a wonderful restaurant with a good atmosphere and tasty food. We will be returning!

Wonderful service, tapas was good. Sangria lovely and atmosphere always welcoming. The churros chocolate sauce is somewhat watery and wouldn’t recommend

First rate experience. Very friendly staff excellent food and reasonable wine prices.
However.......................
Get in quick because we understand that the business is for sale.
Don't not go because of this, just make sure you are there before the change of ownership.
We have seen this restaurant in various guises, so it will continue, but in what form......
