This is our go-to spot when people come in from out of town. Tapas galore to cover all the bases from seafood to vegetarian and the atmosphere is unique and cozy. The bar in front is in the way but there is another in the back that is a bit quieter. I love the pan y tomate con jamon serrano... More

Between two of us we ordered 5 tapas - the bacalao was excellent, the albondigas ok, as was the lamb. The patatas bra vas really artificial tasting and nit like you get in Spain and the chorizo tasted past its best. Food service great, drinks-really slow and not coming in any synch with the food. The pisco sour was really... More

I had a seared tuna hot tapas and the french green beans with almonds hot tapas. My friend had two different spinach tapas. Everything was fine, but nothing was exceptional. The sangria was only average. The place had a nice feel, but I was expecting a bit more.

Great tapas - but not 'small plates' we ordered a few snacky items as we had dinner plans a few hours later figuring the plates would be small. Each plate had enough for 4 to enjoy snacking on! The Paella was DIVINE - the Manchego and fig jam SUPERB! And the wine selection was fabulous. Comfortable and stylish if not... More

Met a bunch of friends here. For what we were looking for, drinks, food, and a good atmosphere, this worked. I agree with other reviews, the tapas vary in qulity, but at a minimum, all are okay. This place was dark and the seating does vary. Service was average...took a while to get refills / new drinks. Definitely not cheap,... More

This is a noisy Georgetown funky restaurant with a cool vibe but only so-so food. Some of the tapas choices were very good, like the chicken croquettes and the chorizo and others were just so-so. Some of us had chairs with backs and others had to sit on ottoman style seats which was not that comfortable and the restaurant is... More

Wow! The food was outrageous. My boyfriend and I wanted to try something new while on vacation so we checked out this place because they were able to seat us right away. It was packed and a little bit loud but we didn't mind. We sat in the bar area. Everything that we ate was delicious and fresh. The sangria... More

Stopped here to get lunch while shopping in Georgetown. My boyfriend is from Spain and says the tapas are very authentic. We didn't want a large lunch and just ordered 3 for the two of us. We left very satisfied. A little on the pricier side for lunch but we were on vacation and didn't really care about that. For... More

Gave the a try after a stroll through Georgetown. We had a late lunch and were not very hungry , the small plates it the spot. We started with Jamon and Manchego, excellent even surprised how much Jamon was on the plate. Followed that with Chicken Croquettes, bite size pieces that arrive hot and very tasty. Our favorite was the... More
