Great lunch spot

My husband, brother and I had lunch here in early August. We were able to sit on the small outdoor patio. Our food was excellent. Service was somewhat slow but the waitress was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend the shrimp tacos.

We went as a couple and absolutely loved our dinner! There was an offer on their facebook page for buy one tapa, get the second half off that we used and had the bacon/mushrooms and the scallops/sausage...soooo good! Then we had the AAA steak that was topped with sriracha shrimp and we were in heaven. Then to finish off with... More

Great chicken skewers. Cheese coquettes, coconut shrimp a little over done. The salmon salad and pecan pie were wonderful. Wine select were fine for Canadian.

The food was excellent, and the service was matched with friendly people. It is a real change from what you might expect from Medicine Hat normal pub grub and chain restaurants - it is top notch, resonable prices, and well worth going! I hope more restaurants start to emulate this one soon.

We shared some lovely tapas and an excellent salad. The coconut shrimp were perfectly prepared and the mushrooms delicious. Very nice ambiance and good service.

The owner is lovely and so is the food! It is pricy but worth it. The portions are perfect and there is a good variety. Great atmosphere!

love going there for live music, nice mellow guitar or a bit of bluesy singing...great place to relax, good food, nice wine selection. Great tapas selection, I personally love the stuffed dates. Owners are always there and pleasant to talk to. Classy all around.

Went there today with a group of friends, 17, each ordering something a little different and we all were happy with our choices. The food was ordered table by table and came out quickly there after. The owner chefs were very friendly and appreciative of the clientèle. Will return again for something different next time.

We were caught in a rainstorm and took shelter in the restaurant. We were greeted in a very friendly way and were immediately taken with the small restaurants ambiance and decided to order some wine and a desert/snack. Wine list was small but good and the two deserts were made in house and both were exceptionally good. Sorry we could... More

We had not eaten in Medicine Hat, but found ourselves there recently and wanted to support a local, non-chain, restaurant. We chose this tapas place because we like tapas and wanted a glass of wine after a few stressful days. It was 1/2 price Wednesday so that was a nice surprise and the wine was excellent. We ordered 3 dishes... More
