We travel to Missoula from Mississippi twice a year to visit family. We have eaten here at least eight times and meal, wine and service outstanding each trip. We share several different tapas between four adults and one child. This is, in my view , the best restaurant in Missoula.

So nice to have ethnic foods and ambiance in Montana... rather than the usual burgers and meat oriented menu's!

The ever changing menu has interesting and delicious items from around the world. Because it is Tapas-style you can try a wide variety of items. It is a little spendy but worth it for a special treat!

This place features a constantly changing menu. You never really know what they may have... which is refreshingly wonderful and satisfying. I like the multiple dishes and the culinary adventure... a form of roulette. No need for black tie...bike clothes fit right in. Excellent entres paired with many appetizers... it is all appetizers... until you get to the desserts. The... More

We arrived without a reservation and were offered a seat at the bar, even though half of the restaurant was empty (and stayed that way). Once we were seated, the bartender was decently attentive, but then.... suddenly, *everyone* became very attentive and there was a bustle to everyone. My dinner companion noted that someone had sat down at the end... More

I have wanted to try this place for the last few trips to my hometown. Took my brother & his significant other there this last trip. It was a lot of fun choosing from their menu. Ordering small plates was a new experience for them. We were adventurous. Go with a few people, so you can try several.

Great food and great pairing with Wine, if you do this sort of thing. Food is very flavorful and satisfying. Go with a group and order multiple entrees to share.

This is my fifth visit to this wonderful restaurant. I have never been disappointed in the food or the service. Each visit held new things to try and old favorites to remember. I especially like the wine flight selections which let you try wines you may not have the opportunity to get in Montana. The decor is so real you... More

I love this place. So many different flavors and it's a new experience (and menu) almost every time I go. Portions are small which allow tastes of many dishes, so if you're looking to fill up be expected to spend a fair amount. Definitely worth it for a special occasion though.
