There’s no pretense here, just hearty, inexpensive grandma cooking from the Spanish region of León. El Bierzo a Tope has been around since the late 70s and is one of Gayxample’s most popular eateries – among both gays and locals – thanks to its set menus that offer three courses and generous quantities of housewine for a bargain price.

The menus are offered at both lunch and dinner, including Saturdays, and with room for a surprising number of people, it’s a handy option whenever you’re in the mood for Spanish fare of the home-cooked variety or a group without a reservation. Busy and boisterous, the inside is always interesting but, given a choice, pick an outdoor table for front row seats to the passing trade of the gaybourhood.
