This standout tapas spot is a bit out of the way on a fairly desolate stretch, but offers a comfortable setting, hospitable staff and, most important, great food. The signature menu includes unbeatable paprika-rich garlic soup, plump mussels in parsley-flecked cream sauce, crispy potatoes that soak up flavorful chorizo grease and bacon-wrapped figs with brandy cream sauce so decadent it leans more toward dessert (but have both if you can).
