Unlike many other money-off vouchers it can be redeemed all day, every day, so cut-price food on a Saturday night seemed like too good an opportunity to miss.
However, it was rather fortunate we only paid for half our food because while some of it was tapas-tastic, the rest feel short of the mark.
Here's what my party of three ordered, and how we rated it...
- Bread and olives: Bread was fresh and absorbed dipping oil and balsamic vinegar (more Italian than Spanish) well, black olives were a little too soft, but the boy rated the green ones
- Langostinos a la plancha: Juicy grilled prawns with sea salt and lemon. A bit troublesome to peel, despite being properly cooked, but worth the effort
- Pescado Blanco Frito: Good, crisp batter encased slightly over-cooked non-specified white fish. Mayonnaise lacked flavour so overall the dish lacked significance
- Calamares Andaluza: A little cold, a little chewy, but still one of my favourite dishes of the evening
- Albondigas a la jardinera: Light, bouncy meatballs made of pork and beef in tomato sauce. Could have eaten double
- Berenjenas gratinadas: Disappointingly watery aubergines in a thin tomato sauce, topped in a teaspoon of cheese
- Champinones al ajillo: I was reliably informed that these garlic mushrooms were a big hit
- Pimento Romano: Half a Romano pepper stuffed with some undecipherable vegetables and cous-cous (allegedly). Give this dish a wide berth
- Ensalada de espinacas et aguacate: Unremarkable mix of spinach, cucumber, white onion and avocado. At least the avocado was ripe
- Paella de verduras: Vegetable paella lacked any real pizazz but had comforting texture and a nice range of veggies
- Gambas gabardina: Deep fried prawns with light batter tasted fresh and delicious
