As you arrive at De Nada, you’ll be greeted by the warmth and conviviality that the Mediterranean is well-known for. The name itself translates to ‘it’s nothing’, indicating that nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff. We enjoyed sourdough laden with chopped tomato and salty padron peppers, accompanied by a beer, while we studied the authentic tapas menu. We decided on crowd-pleasers of patatas bravas with alioli, and a Spanish tortilla for my vegetarian friend. I tucked into sumptuous king prawns in garlic and chilli and delicious crispy squid, while also delighting in the chef’s selection of authentic charcuterie meats and cheeses. Comprising chorizo, serrano ham and various Spanish cheeses, the detail is impeccable – even down to the fruity cubes of quince. A final flourish of churros with chocolate sauce left us full to the brim and happily transported us to the tabernas of the Spanish coast.
