Adriana and Pedro, the self-confessed “rey de tapas” have been running Xellini for around 20 years. The building is 130 years old with a dynamic, postmodern decor. The tapaslist hosts a “market menu” which changes every couple of weeks. The dates wrapped in bacon, and the traditional “pastel de verduras”, a savoury cake, comes highly recommended. Here they are advocates for local produce and have their own branded Xellini wine, made with grapes from the peninsula.
