Wanted somewhere different to go for birthday & was not disappointed. The small sign street level doesn't indicate what is waiting below - a cross between NY and Barcelona urban chic. Lovely bar area and a large expanse for dining. You don't feel like you are on top of others. It was a Tuesday & I'm glad I booked. It... More

Came for dinner and the entrees were excellent - the combined meat platter with the Jamon pâté was outstanding - the croquettes were creamy and delicious. The paella was ok - great crust. A nice bottle of rose topped off an enjoyable night.

A great semi casual place for a family birthday celebration. The food was great and the meat on the metal hangers looked great. Good cocktails and a nice ambience if a tad noisy.
