Fodor's Review

A favorite with gourmands, this often overcrowded little counter serves some of the best beer and tapas in town. The house-brewed artisanal draft beer—named after the Fort family who own and run the bar—is drawn and served with loving care by veteran epauletted waiters who have it down to a fine art. To eat, the solomillo con foie y cebolla (beef filet mignon with duck liver and onions) is an overwhelming favorite, but the fresh fish prepared a la plancha (on the grill) is also excellent. If you avoid peak local lunch and dinner hours (2–4 and 9–11), you will have better luck carving out a place to enjoy your food and drink.
