First of all great service, very accommodating plus they made sure we didn't order too much as the Tapas servings are more generous than other similar restaurants. We had a wide variety of dishes but the one I liked the most were the bacon wrapped dates, very unusual flavour but delicious. The Chicken Noodle soup was also great, would go... More

We were from out of town, driving around, saw this place and stopped to eat. It was a good decision. The owner/chef does a great job with tapas (the "Gypsy" something special was really good) -- honestly better than anything we had in Spain. We had the Cubano burger and Layered Eggplant entrees - both carefully prepared, tasty and attractively... More

I've eaten there several times and it's always very good, sometimes more than that. Dishes range from unpretentious (fish and chips, burgers) to really imaginative (salmon with crab, chicken and chorizo). The very best, however, is their Paella - I've never had better, even in Spain. They make it for any number over two people at $26 each and it... More

Inititally I was annoyed that my reservation was moved to the bar area due to a special event going on in the dinning room. Very soon I realized that the bar area is less formal and more friendly and the staff (wife) is excellent hostess/waitress. The food we ordered was really really good, from the salad to the entree. The... More

We prefer their entrees to the tapis selections which are somewhat limited. The paella is filled with fresh seafood. It will be prepared for one person despite the notice on the menu that it is to ordered by two people. The wait staff are very attentive. It takes awhile for the food to arrive, but everything is made to order.... More

This resturant has great food, the Pialla (a spanish rice dish) is wonderful and not to be ordered if you are alone. Their desserts are to die for!

First and formost the chef and wait staff are courteous and very pleasant. The staff is well versed on the meals and specials. This restaurant provides a great dinner at the bar and marvelous dining in the dining room. Great, fresh food is the key to this fine dining establishment with hospitality a close second. It is a warm atmosphere... More
