Del Diego serves amazing cocktails in a lively, fun venue which is always busy. Those who want to snack whilst they drink can enjoy the concise yet elaborate tapas menu, and accompany their margarita, cosmopolitan or mojito with some typical Spanish food.


This locale’s name is just as fun and original as its interior, which is decorated in a vintage way, with colorful mismatched chairs and tables, bright flowers, romantic candles and interesting wallpaper. There is a great lounge area where tourists and locals will be able to enjoy their tasty drinks and scrumptious tapas whilst relaxing on one of the comfy sofas. Their tostas are to die for, and their little cakes and coffee are also worth trying.
