We MUST go here evertime we are in St Augustine. To be honest it is primarily why we go St Augustine! Chef Josh and waiter Jason were terrific. The best scallops we've had in a long, long time!

Had dinner here with a group of friends. The room is unique and nice. Limited menu, but good food..... beverages are expensive and the food also. We all enjoyed dinner, but there were a couple of big mistakes... they took care of it, but should not have happened.

This is my favorite restaurant in St Augustine. The quality and creativity of the food is always outstanding. I had the snapper special with lentils and it was outstanding. The mushrooms and octopus were both awesome starters as well. Great wine list as well!

Life long locals and we've always heard about this place. Wish we didn't take so long to try it. This is a hidden gem! The wine list has something for everyone. Dave helped us pick a perfect Spanish wine to pair with our food. They made our date night so special, We cant wait to go back

Much to our surprise, they no longer offer an extensive list of authentic spanish tapas where one can make an entire dinner out of several tapas. Thus, we had to settled for a regular entree dinner.

Went for my best friend's birthday dinner in the 'Red Room' and we had a great time! Very private and excellent service! Beat salad and Monkfish entrée were the highlight of the night.
