What a treasure! Not only is the food excellent and authentic, the atmosphere is very European, with friendly wait staff flamenco dancing and a warm chef/owner who makes you feel like you are in his home. My husband and I had a great dinner followed by a simple dessert of figs with gelato. The chef came to our table and... More

My husband and I have to Spain and love their cuisine.The food here is good.the restaurant looks like Spain. You feel like you are in Spain as soon as you walk in the door. The best part is the music.You will not find better in the US..The guitarists are very good,the singer is great and the dance Yumi is great,.

I had been wanting to try paella for a very long time. Saw this restaurant on a review show on PBS, thought we would try it. Service was very slow. Portion size on paella was more than adequate but it was lightly warm at best, seafood / meats in paella was WAY overcooked. Tapas seemed kinda generic, not in the... More

My first experience at an authentic Spanish fine dining restaurant and what a great experience! Had heard great reviews about the restaurant and hence decided to experience it. Good location with a great ambience. We went quite late on a weekday, hence the restaurant wasn't quite buzzing with guests. The sever who attended to us was very good with recommendations... More

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

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
