We go for tapas to Lo de Andres in Sabinillas

As promised, on Friday night we went to the bar/ restaurant "Lo de Andrés" in Sabinillas for tapas.  We had a great night with some truly excellent food.  I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank Andrés and his staff for their hospitality and fine food.  If you're in the area and need some good food you can find them behind the taxi rank in Sabinillas.  Well worth a visit.

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed that show, thanks. It was so interesting.

Susan looked decidedly inebriated at the end, all in a good cause though, Susan.

See you tomorrow.

Great episode. So what does mechada actually mean then? I don't think I heard the answer to that.

Is your Anna really an Ana?

Another great show but you missed my favourite, Pimientos de Padron, said to be like playing Russian Roulette as 1 in 10 is red hot! and you missed my children's favourite, Chipirones, tiny whole squid deep fried in batter!

I am SO hungry now!

What can you say about that... phew! made me feel stuffed just watching it. Very windy up here on the Costa Blanca on Saturday night, lost power for over 2hrs. Enjoyed a meal at our local restaurante Sunday lunchtime, with 20 others from local singing group. We've noticed in Spain, they do like to bring you lots of 'starters' We had Serrano + cheese, then prawns + scrambled eggs with vegetables in it(can't remember what it's called, this was followed by a large plate of salad with olives in it, before we even got to the main course. Plenty of wine and at the end we had a lot of communal singing. The Spanish group on the next table clapped every song and then finally sang a song for us.What a lovely people!!

I could eat montaditos all day long, so many types and those on there looked very tasty. Thanks for another great show.

Just want to say that i am really enjoying your show. I watch it from over here in sunny cyprus. I'm hoping to move to Spain next year. Keep up the good work... xxx ;o)

Thanks for the comments. The final bill for the 4 of us came to 108 Euros.

That included all the starters and the two bottles of Faustino VII.

Remember that we didn't have the "tapas" as such, we went for the raciones which are much larger portions and the jamon iberco which is expensive anywhere you go. We also had a huge amount of food, far more than we would normally order.

This bar is very good, very popular with all the locals which shows the quality of the food they do there. They only opened up a couple of months ago and they are going to be doing more things soon so we'll be going back there very soon ourselves...as soon as I finish my diet!

Loved this one, made me quite hungry. If they ever introduce an eatathon in the 2012 olympics you guys should go for it, you would win gold for sure. Keep it up !

Each show just gets better!
Very interesting and informative.
I am jealous at your knowledge of the Spanish language, I really must try harder!
Look forward to tomorrow..........

As Justin says, there was a lot of food. I tend to eat a lot but was really struggling towards the end. I was actually sickly full, but in a nice way ;-) Half the amount would have done me to be honest.

It looks like I´ll be making a return visit to Lo de Andres next week as my parents are visiting and are keen to go after seeing the video! It´s a hard life!

Well Justin & Susan that will teach you to film at night, it looked as if you had a bottle of wine before at rehearsal!
I'm sure you will sort out the sound levels soon as the background noise was overpowering.

I don’t think you said how much the bill was, it would be good to know.

Have you tried the Tapas bar/ restaurant on the Avenida Miraflores, just below Solbank in Sabinillas they do a mixed selection served on a large platter at lunchtime
There is so much you need a siesta afterwards. (I don’t know if its available in the evening)
Really enjoyed the first week shows, keep up the good work and don’t forget to feed the monkey.

I don't think that was a bad price, £25 aprox per head for good food and drink, you want to come to Newcastle, it would cost double that.

Bit chaotic but thoroughly enjoyable.
Would have likeed to have been there.
Helps greatly with the learning curve.
The currency thing hits home though when the bill arrives.
Keep it up.

Hello Susan & Justin

Well done, I just love the Siesta Show, it makes my day! My wife and I are planning to move to Spain next year and I feel that your show provides an insight into the Spanish way of life. Keep up the good work!
