Fodor's Expert Review El Paquetito

$ Arcos de la Frontera Spanish

At the bottom of the climb up to the old town, this small restaurant serves—according to many—the best tapas (from €2.50) in Arcos. Signature tapas are paquetitos (little parcels) of phyllo pastry with seven different fillings; the most requested are the goat cheese with spinach and pine nuts, and the salmon with herbed cheese. Tapas change at the weekend. Berenjenas con miel (fried eggplant with honey) and the fillet steak with Pedro Ximénez sherry are other house specialties. The interior is cheap and cheerful, with plastic tables on the pleasant outside terrace and wooden ones inside.
