La Brunilda

Updated February 2014


La Brunilda keeps going from strength to strength. Chef Diego Caminos (formerly with Zelai) branched out on his own in 2012 and, along with his oenologist wife Esperanza, created La Brunilda, now one of the best tapas bars in town. On the chalkboard menu you will find an enticing selection of traditional tapas with a twist, without the pretention and high prices that have become the norm at many of the new “gastrobars”.  A charming and cosy ambiance in a beautifully renovated 18th century house, with great attentive service and amazing food, including delicious tapas-sized salads (why aren’t more people doing this?).

Be sure to try the grilled presa with buttery sweet potato, the chipirones with eggy migas, and of course the best mini beef burger in town (I call it the “crackburger” because it’s so addictive – and I don’t even like mini burgers!) served in a brioche bun with soy mayo and crispy sweet potato crisps. The “tapa del día” is always worth checking out as well.
