Good quality but very oily.

There are many tapas choices (not too many vegetarian options though), one free basket of bread and the staff is friendly. I'm definitely not a specialist as far as Spanish food is concerned, but I found everything oily and quite heavy to digest. However to be honest I think Spanish tapas food... read more

My colleague and I both thought tapas would be just the antidote to more than a week of (good) Thai food, and we just found this place without prior suggestion. Nothing fancy, but good. We were very pleased with the varied selection, good preparation, reasonable portion sizes and very accommodating service and manager's considered advice. The Spanish wine is a... More

I know you don't go to Thailand to eat Spanish food but there are so many international options and this is a good one. Tapas are reasonably priced and delicious. There is an option for 3, 6 or 9 tapas or you can order a la carte. One order of bread is complementary. Atmosphere is good and at lunch it... More

We frequent tapas as a solid and dependable 'go to' when friends are in town for something quick and easy before heading out for the night. Nothing too flashy but simple, consistent quality tapas - yes there are better but it works and happy to recommend to others for simple eating in sukhumvit area.

We made a special trip here because we rarely have the opportunity to eat Spanish food and were excited to have a good place to try. While the food was moderately authentic (I'm rather picky about croquetas), it was nothing special in terms of flavor. It was a fine meal, but I kind of regret wasting a meal in a... More

We were looking forward to having real Spanish Tapas but we were fairly disappointed in the flavours of the dishes we ordered. All seemed to be plain and nothing very exciting came to our table, we ordered 5 dishes, quantities were reasonable size but all could have come from a can as far as flavour. Nice atmosphere and service was... More

If you like tapas, this is the place for you. Restaurant is tucked down small Soi off Sukhumvit Soi 11 and easily missed. Excellent selection of tapas and the meat balls in tomato sauce were delicious. Good service, lovely ambience and manager is from Spain, so this helps with food selection.

Service was extremely fast and friendly. Our waitress had perfect English. The food was amazing and also came out quickly. We were checked on often and drinks were provided quickly.

This Tapas Bar is worth finding, its in a little U shaped laneway off Soi 11 and not far from the Nana BTS. If you are in the Sukhumvit area its well worth a visit, we actually came once for lunch and again for dinner. We have been here several times over a few years now, always great tasting food....
