My wife and I ate dinner here, because of the appeal of the menu and the generally favorable reviews it has received. I was quite pleased with my entrée--scallops with mashed potatoes on spinach. My wife found her paella ordinary -- all the right ingredients but bland. The comment from another reviewer about deterioration in service rang true. We ordered... More

Wow! What terrific Basque cuisine! Our group of 4 had several different tapas, all of which were terrific, including garlic shrimp, picaton (goat cheese with tomatoes), and pork with red peppers and cheese. The Brussels sprouts with the blue cheese bechamel were excellent. The grilled calamares were out of this world, and the cod croquettes along with the txipirones en... More

Can't say enough great things about this place. Had 4 of us for dinner. Had 4 tapas and 4 meals. No complaint from anyone. Honestly I couldn't even tell you who my waiter was because everyone that passed out table asked us if we needed anything. If you love on Connecticut or just visiting you have to dine here.

One night stopover in Milford Landings Marina. Happened upon this little place. We were all happily surprised. The ambiance, food and service was outstanding! Can not wait to return!

Let me start by saying I have absolutely loved this restaurant and have eaten here countless times. The atmosphere is awesome. Both inside and the patio outside. The lomo and cauliflower are my favorite tapas. Delicious. However, the service and food in general have gone terribly downhill. I have been embarrassed bringing friends here the past 4 times and will... More

Friends of ours brought us to this place and we had a truly outstanding dinner. Great food, great wine, great service, great ambience, the works. We went on a beautiful early summer evening and enjoyed the outdoor seating area in the back, but the inside was just as lovely. I recommend this restaurant very highly.

I've had dinner and drinks her multiple times. Many of the tapas are outstanding and offer true honest flavours of the Basque region. The entrees are equally excellent, especially the paella (which is a bit less typical Basque, but who cares). The owner/waiter couldn't be more French and will make you feel comfortable and is likely to make a few... More

Went on a date night. The waiter was very charismatic with a French accent. He was very helpful in making recommendations. Had a bottle of wine with our meal, just a Malbec. For a salad the duck frisée was excellent. Appetizer/tapas we had the goat cheese bruschetta which was very yummy. Dinner I would recommend the Cazuela de mariscos, was... More
