This is not real spanish food. The "Calamares" is actually "Pota" bigger and chipper. The tomato sauce taste exactly the same than brava sauce, the difference is last one is spice. Tortilla is dry and usually they serve it cold. If you have been in Spain you'll notice this bar the only thing it has spanish is the name.

This tapas restaurant is one of the bests among the options in Sandvika. We have used this restaurant couple of times and in general we are happy with their promises! The best for us is the beard and garlic souce they serve. Tapas choices are rather extensive and quality is just above the average as well as the price. But... More

Nice restaurant with authentic touch, like a normal medium-priced tapas restaurant in Spain. Warm atmosphere, Spanish employees and a good selection of tapas and cocktails. They also had a nice fino sherry. I liked that the waiter was fast bringing the food, as well as washing tables/cleaning up immediatly after guests left. The place was a bit over half-full on...

Originally planned to pick an choose different tapas, but ended up with menu 2. A lot of them very good and some more plain (but as expected when picking a menu). In general good taste, nice atmosphere and Spanish people working there. Good work a tapas alternative in Sandvika

I've been to this tapas bar twice. Both times have I've been impressed by the food and not so impressed by the service quality. Don't get me wrong: the staff is positive and friendly, but they get the orders a bit mixed up or forget something. Drinks should come immeaditly. But for the food, I'll come back.

The tapas was great, lots of food for a decent price, but when the restaurant have few guests, the service should be better. Waiting for more to drink for 10 minutes is not good enough.

A popular restaurant serving very good food quality, with a broad menu of tapas prepared by a Spanish chef. Most of the staff are Spanish too and the atmosphere is excellent, especially on selected evenings when they have live music and flamenco. This, along with the reasonable price, was a really pleasant surprise for us.
