This restaurant has it all - great food, good service and attention to detail. Spanish theme, wines & music, tastefully done. The owner is on hand to help wine (or) pairing! Smack center of town, can't beat it.

We went there by accident... (As I'm from Barcelona...) and to be honest, I was very impressed. The place is not amazing, It's ok, but the food is good! The dishes are not very big (not a lot of food by ration) but teally tasty. For me, the best were "croquetas, tortilla patatas & huevos revueltos". To finish, just one... More

We had a meal here on Saturday & we really enjoyed the experience. When comparing it to local Vietnamese restaurants, it is on the more expensive side, but we were happy to pay extra for the quality of the food. We ordered 4 tapas dishes & bread for 2 people - Meatballs, Prawns, Potatoes & a Feta Cheese/Cashew Nut salad.... More

We ordered about 6 tapas plates & really liked them. The meatballs were a little dissaponting, however the other dishes were outstanding. The rocket, cashew & fetta salad was superb. The wines by the glass were good, we had 2 of the red wines & enjoyed them. If you can get a seat by the window, it is always interesting... More

I have visited this restaurant bar several times in the past 6 months. The food in the main restaurant on the second or third floor is ok, nothing too special and the service is fine. I go to Pacharan for the live music on the first floor where you can also order tapas - the chorizo and patatas bravas are... More

The food was good the two mains came 20 minutes apart, and we had not finished our entrée. You would think the kitchen would know the cooking time between a steak and lamb. Waitress was who served our table was good.

Service was probably the only positive of our visit to this restaurant. The menu looked promising upon ordering but when eating the dishes we chose, they were below average. Salmon croquettes were with an apple sauce which was not a good combo. The bean with "chorizo and ham" lacked salt and there was no chorizo or ham to be seen.... More

If you search Google for "Watch Premier League in HoChiMinh City" like I did, you'll probably arrive at this page. So I thought I'd set the record a bit straight. Firstly, this is a great place... friendly staff, great food and good atmosphere. But it doesn't warrant being top of the list for watching Spurs v Stoke on a Saturday... More
