Andalusia tapas with kids

Jump to last reply

Next month we will have 9 nights in Andalusia. Our only previous trip to Spain was 4 years ago and we stayed with friends in Madrid so it was a sheltered experience. Our kids are 14 & 11.

From what I can tell, "normal" dining hours are very late. However, to get a slightly earlier start one can (and should) partake in tapas. That's fine, we enjoy Spanish food and are generally adventurous.

It seems the "preferred" way is to seek out the popular/crowded places, have a tapa or two and then move on to the next popular/crowded bar. Is that what families do? (I have seen very few reports from families in my research here).

We are early go-getters and we would normally eat around 7. Fine to stretch to 8 or so to adjust to Spanish time. Not so keen on 9-10. Can't see the bar hopping being a big hit though. Is it that unusual to pick a place, get a table and graze on rounds of tapas?? Particularly if we get there "early" (whatever that is).

FYI, we'll be in Granada (2), Seville (5) and Malaga (2). Thanks.
