I have eaten tapas all over the US and in Barcelona and these were by far the best I have ever had. The creative combinations were actually as amazing as they sounded on the menu. I had five different ones, mostly seafood based but also a venison special. I arrived early by Montreal standards and luckily got my order in... More

English version to follow Belle tapas goûteuses et recherchées dans la présentation. Option de menu avec 4 tapas en entrée choisies par le chef + un plat principal que vous choisissez, belle idée ! pour 38 $. L'ambiance est raffinée et le service présent et discret à la fois. Attention cependant, l'addition peut monter rapidement dès qu'on ajoute vin et/ou... More

The service was pretty unpleasant--it seemed rushed and yet slow. The wait staff seemed to have no time or patience for questions, and they were barely polite until right before the check came, when our server suddenly became friendly. Unlike tapas we have had elsewhere, the portions here were individual-sized, yet they tended to serve one person at a time... More

Best of its kind - food was truly delicious, though very small servings - waiter agreed correctly that for the 3 of us we needed about 12 tapas. (Prices, however, were very reasonable). The service was perfect; that was especially important when you have 12 separate items and need them to come to your table at the proper intervals.

Great food, service, and atmosphere. They got everything just right. We just ate tapas, which are great because you can try all this unusual stuff, like octopus carpaccio, which was a distinctive and enjoyable appetizer, but not something I would eat a lot of. One thing to note: the waitress recommended 5-6 tapas per person, but we I think ended... More

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...
