We went because we were given a gift certificate. Service was excellent. The waitress paid attention to our needs and served us promptly. I don't like goat cheese, so she suddenly remembered that one of the pintxos that I wa given had some, and she whisked it away just as I was about to eat it. We had 4 pintxos... More

We've been coming here for several years and find it one of the best meals of our trips. After selecting a bottle of wine, we spent time deciding on whihc dishes we'd go for. Uising the "tablecloth" to jot down, cross-out, add and subtract dishes, we settled on 9, which turned out to be just about the right amount. I... More

I was at this restaurant with a friend on July 3. At first, we were impressed with the atmosphere. We were one of the first to arrive, it was quiet and inviting. As the place got crowded, the noise level stayed low and I took long to me to notice that the place was packed, which is for me a... More

This place was recommended to us, and for the most part we liked it. The tapas plates were displayed well, but I guess I just wasn't wowed by the options. Lovely place, nice staff, dessert was yummy, but the choices for tapas were mostly seafood, pork, and salads. I just have had better...

We only tried their Pork chop & Lamb rack; it was beautifully plated and presented, perfectly cooked and seasoned. One of the best tastes that I had ever experienced. The staffs were also considerate and made us feel welcoming. Overall, I think this cozy restaurant deserve all good reviews and should be tried by anyone, at least, once; I only... More

The food was excellent. The atmosphere was horrible and noise level was terrible. The group behind us was so loud we could not talk to the person next to you. I felt the staff should have dealt with the situation but choose not to ignore the situation. Was not the best experience for our family special gathering for a very... More

Great atmosphere in a quiet location. Best tapas in the city by far. Service was impeccable. This will be a must visit next time in town.

Very good service & nice, cozy atmosphere. The tapas are very good and the wine list is great. I personnally don't like it as much as Tapeo, another great tapas place in Montreal, but I would still recommend it!

I ate here about 6 months ago and had the tasting menu. It was good, but very standardized. This time we ordered a la carte. Better option and we had a party of 8, and each ordered 4-5 tapas. The winners were a split small lobster tail, grilled, and the ragout of wild mushrooms and escargot was fantastic. The beef... More
