Stumbled upon this fine establishment whilst walking through Scottsdale in the evening. Superb Tapas and wonderful seafood paella which they adapted for me to take out the chicken since I don't eat meat. I've visited Spain more than 10 times and the meal was on a par with the best I've had there. Very friendly staff but the music is... More

We stopped over in Scottsdale on our way from Las Vegas to San Diego & enjoyed a delightful meal outside BT the canal with the cool spray blowing . It was 100F & felt fabulous. We had lovely meals,complimented with excellent service & drinks with lots of ice. Ice cold water was on our table within 60 seconds of sitting... More

Parking underground is very convenient. Restaurant is sort of hard to find at first. The food is good, but the best deals are to be had at happy hours - the 2 for one drink special is great (though the drinks are $8 or so, so its not quite amazing HAPPY HOUR prices). Had a male server who never introduced... More

we've eaten here multiple times over the past couple years and the food has been great every time. the sangria is fantastic, the food is very good, the atmosphere is very nice, especially outside, and the churros for dessert are amazing. this place has a lot of character and isnt a run of the mill, chain like restaurant

Ever since my trip to Spain last year, I am obsessed with tapas. While we were walking to another restaurant we came across this place. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and 5 tapas plates. The prices were right for the portion. Everything was delicious, but my favorite was the calamari steak. I have eaten in 3 times in my... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. It was outstanding. Wonderful food, very good service, and great Flamenco dancing. The chef/owner stopped by all the tables to discuss the food, dancing and service. The menu describes the food and the region from which it originated from in Spain. We shared several appetizers and soup,... More

Great flamenco music and flamenco dancer made this a treat. We ate there for Arizona Restaurant week. Loved that they made a separate gluten free menu for that. Food was very good overall and reasonably priced. Server was very helpful and really knew the wine better than most servers we encounter at most restaurants. Will definitely go back.

Although the food was good, I'm not sure we would return to this restaurant if there was live music. Even without the music it was hard to have a conversation, but with the Flamenco dancing and the loud band, it was impossible. My throat is sore from trying to make myself heard. It seems that most people reviewing this restaurant... More

IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE IN AN AMBULANCE: (after fainting and going into convulsions) like both my friend and I, then go ahead and risk your entire weekend (and possibly life) by eating this terribly low quality poisonous food...and enjoy the bill at full price with not a single item removed or even an simple I'm sorry from anyone in...

The first time we visited this restaurant (September 2013) we weren't incredibly impressed. The hostess was pleasant but our waitress wasn't the friendliest or most helpful. We were seated inside and the band was playing. The band was so loud our table couldn't carry on a decent conversation without feeling like we were yelling at each other. Someone in our... More
