We ate here twice, both times with no reservation, which is not recommended. The first time we got a seat at the bar from 7pm - 8:30pm and the second time a table from 6:30- 8:30. The service is excellent. We tried 7 different dishes and each one was excellently prepared, from the smoked pepper dip to the ensalada mixta... More

We were looking for some non-German cuisine and saw this restaurant on trip advisor. We arrived on Saturday evening at 8:30pm without reservations to find a very small, packed and busy eatery. There seemed to be a large single party of about 20-23 people that literally took up 80% of the restaurant. The only remaining space was standing room at... More

We wanted something different for dinner and like tapas but this was more of a very small wine bar then a tapas place!! Looked at the reviews and didn't see many of the food items other ppl had talked about!! The wine selection was good and the service was good.

This restaurant was across our hotel and we've decided to have a drink that turned out into a dinner. We ate in the patio. The staff is great, the wines are great and the food is wonderfull: great carpaccio, morcilla, octopus and desserts. Our best meal in Germany, and better than most meals I had in Spain.

We found the restaurant via Google when looking for non-German cuisine in the area. The food was amazing, and I highly recommend the bacon-wrapped dates. It's a tapas bar so you can order a wide variety of small dishes. They also have a decent wine list. They have odd reservation times. One is from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm and... More

Friendly, comfortable and great food. I would eat here again. The wine selection is really great -- very nice having some Spanish options. I appreciated the friendly service. I had the mushrooms in a creamy tomato sauce and the escalopine wrapped in prosciutto. I'm not sure of the Spanish names for these dishes, but they were both great!

Great selection of tapas - hot and cold! Fresh flavors and delicious cocktails. Enjoyed the meatballs, dates wrapped in bacon, purée of avocado, sardines, and chicken liver.

My wife and I ate a lovely meal here one evening during our recent stay in Baden Baden. We saw it as we were wandering the city during the day and went back for a meal because we fancied something a little different. Staff were great, good service, and the tapas dishes were really good. Not badly priced for Baden... More

Cozy restaurant with a very nice and warm atmosphere. The selection of tapas is good. For those that have been to tapas restaurants in the Mediterranean, the selection may seem limited and possibly tailored too much for local tastes. But, I think it provides a nice mix of variety and is a wonderful alternative to the usual German restaurants in... More
