Description: Tussen de overdaad aan, de één al meer dan de andere, toeristisch gerichte tapaabars vind je dit juweeltje schuin tegenover Los Caracoles. Deze laatste is een gevestigde waarde met heel veel bezoekers. Prijs/kwaliteit gaan zij echter onderuit.Colom daarentegen, met een Galicische kok aan het fornuis, geeft voor een zéér redelijke prijs de beste tapas, heerlijke paëlla's en slaatjes.Voor een paëlla mixte betaal je 9,95 EUR pp en krijg je écht waar voor je geld : de juiste rijst, niet uitgedroogd en heerlijk veel schelpjes, mosselen, kip, gamba's,...en ga zo maar door.Bovendien staan beide diensters in voor een positieve en correcte bediening.Een aanrader !

The food at this restaurant was completely unacceptable and nearly inedible. We hated all of our food - its clearly an overpriced tourist trap where the food was cooked the day before, and with poor quality ingredients. For example the "paella” (I wont disrespect the concept of paella by calling what they serve paella) had fishsticks in it instead of fish. We left most of our food and left to to eat a better meal out of a vending machine.
