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

My husband and I stumbled upon Monte Cristo on a Saturday night. We arrived around 7:15 with no reservation, but they were able to fit us in at the bar (note: the bar only has 4 seats, bar seating may not always be available if they have a lot of walk-ins). They were accommodating to have English menus for us... More

I was interested in looking at reviews once we returned because we couldn't figure out why I had searched out this place to eat. Service was nice, but the tapas were not interesting in any way. Cheese was not distinctive, I didn't see many of the items folks described so maybe it was an off night???? I would not eat... More

We got here early since we did not have a reservation. Fortunately the restaurant accommodated us, but it filled up quickly with diners. The wait staff was friendly and spoke decent English. We ordered a variety of tapas, and were impressed by the generous portions. There were so many excellent and creative choices of tapas to choose from and reasonable... More

We ate in a few restaurants in Baden Baden and this was the best by quite some margin. Good atmosphere, Great food and excellent wine. Well worth a visit!

This was one of the best tapas bars that I've been to in Germany. They had some traditional tapas, and some more inventive ones (using Spanish ingredients in a way that I haven't seen in Spain: i.e. jamon, manchego and pesto grilled in a flat bread). The staff was friendly and the service was quick. The red wines by the... More

This Tapas restaurant has relatively large portions for a Tapas bar. There were many wines by the glass. I do recommend that you book early. Besides the tables - which were all full when I was there, there are about 4 places at the bar itself. So, it does fill up, so probably best to book ahead.

A hidden Gem. Wide selection of tasty Tapases, and a very nice and cozy atmosphere, and the service was great! You couldn't tell that the you're in Geramny and not Spain. I just think of it and I start to drool...

We were visiting Baden Baden during a two week trip and were very tired of traditional German food. I spotted this place while we were driving and we decided to try it. It ended up being one of the best meals of our vacation. The menu was in Spanish and German and being familiar with Spanish food, it was very... More
