We spent a weekend in the River North area of Chicago. We were not familiar with hte area. Received a lunch recommendation from the bell man at our hotle. This was our first experience at a Spanish restaurant. Overall very positive. Food was very good and service was excellent

We went tonight May 27 2015 , 3 people . The food was average to low quality. Mans toilet had door lock broken so it was very unpleasant .... Prices are almost double since 2008 !!!!

If you are looking for a fun environment and a Spanish setting, this place is for you. Food is very reasonably priced. Although, 3/5 because I don't think the food tastes that amazing. Maybe you'll feel differently. I would go back, but nothing to rave about.

A must try, authentic, casual, and friendly Spanish Tapas and Sangria joint. Sit at the bar...Don't miss the Seafood Paella with a twist of lemon juice, mushroom, octopus, potato tapas. Get ready for a twist of garlic all over :)

I heard a bout this place and read the reviews and thought i cant go wrong but i was quite wrong. The food is simply mediocre. We tried multiple tapas and appetizers and everything was either dry or flavorless or just not special. Even the sangria was not as rich and flavorful as typical sangria. Maybe the chef had an...

We ordered an octopus tapa which was cooked perfectly. The sausage tapa was great cause it gave a variety including blood sausage which was superb. The mussels and fritters were good as well, nothing to write home about. Staff was friendly.

My husband choice of restaurant for our last meal in Chicago. The tapas bar look quite impressive, reminded me of our Barcelona trip. We had ordered the seafood (cold) tapas and 2 hot tapas (seafood and chickpeas over tomatoes sauce and goat stew). It was so much foods for two people. We had to take away goat stew.

My Dad is from Madrid and I have been to Spain many times, so trust me when I tell you the food is the same as if you were there. The dishes are great, and there are a wide variety of hot or cold tapas (small plates) to choose from. When you go to a tapas restaurant, part of the... More

Our party of 5 went here for dinner on a Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed sharing 6-8 small tapas from their extensive menu list. Service was friendly and attentive. We ordered sangria by the pitcher but they also have a pretty good wine selection - you have to see how they decorated the ceiling spaces with empty wine bottles. The... More
