Fun and Eclectic Menu

Really neat menu at this place. I had Duck Tacos three ways and then classic shrimp, garlic and chillis. Both were very good and the Sangria was a nice touch. I was in there on a Tuesday evening and they had live music too. Very nice place. Wish I had been able to try more but both of the... read more

You go in, sit at a high top, most likely, order a glass of wine, and a couple of tapas. The ones we had were good, not outstanding. Can feel a little crowded. Still, for doing the small plates thing while sipping a glass of wine, this place fits the bill.

This is a fun little restaurant the my husband and I visited when we were in Bozeman. Since we did not have reservations we dined at the bar. Even when a table opened, the bar was comfortable enough that we decided to stay put. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and able to make recommendations based on our questions and comments....

This is a great restaurant and I would say ideal for groups. You can order several dishes to share, that way you can sample a little of everything. Call for reservations!

We ate there our first night in Bozeman, and the food was excellent. I had the Huerta salad and crab cakes, both excellent.Very friendly service. I would highly recommend it.

Tapas is a great way to enjoy conversation, food, and drink. The service and food are both good, not exceptional. It is a great place for catching up with friends in a quiet environment while being reasonably priced.

One of our regular wine and dine places in Bozeman. The menu is innovative and the ingredients are fresh and mostly local or from their own farm and garden. Friendly and knowledgeable staff ready to answer any questions or make suggestions.

Fun, lively place, with reasonable commitment to Spanish style tapas. Some of the dishes (spicy shrimp; baked brie; etc...) are definitely not Spanish; yet others (paella, patatas bravas) come close to those from the homeland. Wine list surprisingly short on Spanish wines (we went only by the glass - per bottle might be better?) but the few they had were... More

We came a little before the regular lunch crowd, about 11:45. The waiter was quick to get to us as we were the only people in the restaurant. We ordered drinks and an appetizer and all was going great. The place has a nice decor and it was easy to have a conversation. There were four of us dining, but... More

I never thought I would find my favorite tapas restaurant in Bozeman, Montana...but wow...I did! High quality ingredients, local flavor, amazing prices. My boyfriend and I got a liter of red sangria (delish!), four tapas dishes, and desert for around 70 dollars. In New England, we easily would have paid over 100. My personal favorite was the baked brie. It... More
