This little and beautiful restaurant is a must go in Tulum! They got delicious spanish tapas like fried calamari, garlic chicken and "croketas". But the best of all is a delicious paella, rice with seafood. And very decent spanish wines and a good prices. The owners are very sweet and friendly. We will go again in our next trip to... More

We stopped by for a quick bite on our way around Tulum. We ordered a few tapas that were really delicious, and the owner, a Spanish man, was very nice and friendly. Pity we has to rush and couldn't stay a little longer.

I really liked this spot. The owner, Miguel, is from Catalunya, Spain, and this restaurant serves delicious Spanish Tapas. I had a tortilla w/papas, grilled chicken wings and a green salad. All was quite tasty. Peaceful patio - great place to relax, have a nice conversation or get some work done. Ill be back!

We were excited to try this place which was close to where we were staying, and looks very cute. However, the food was AWFUL. We ordered a seafood paella and several tapas. The croquettes came out and were still frozen in the middle. The other dishes were bland, and the presentation was bad. The only reason I'm giving it 2... More

Food was very good. Also enjoyed the 3 piece band played thru our meal they were excellent. We were a group of 8 and each enjoyed their meal. The vegetable appetizers were different and delicious. Salsa was fresh and good also. We found the sangrai good.

We came here for tapas and were really happy with our meal. I found the sangría to be a little too strong but other than that, the food was very tasty and each dish was brought out as it was ready so we didn't have to wait to tuck in. I was also pleased that they brought us bread with... More

I love the concept of tapas, and love that there is a place in tulum that offers them. I would love to give this place a perfect five, but wasn't completely satisfied with our first visit here. The menu offers so many tasty looking things (each item on the menu features a corresponding picture!), it can take a while to... More

Everything well prepared--very comparable to food we ate in Spain--"classic" and relatively non adventurous menu. Great value and very friendly owners.
