Tapas gone wild. Really spectacular! Incredible fusion of farm to table meats and cheeses. Outstanding service. Excellent wine by the glass selections. If you are in Kingston, you have to give it a go. Chorizo and chocolate? Huh? It works! Pickled Portuguese Peppers - we fought over the last one. Too many small plates to review, but suffice to say,... More

Love that the menu has a great variety of options. Portions are tapas like, but enough to share. 4 of us ordered 10 things and it was perfect amount. Some things we liked better than others, but that is the fun of sampling. The chef takes great care with preparation, that is obvious. Space is cramped, wine list is good!

We shared a few yummy dishes and there was a decent wine list. I had a Malbec that hit the spot. My only complaint was the dessert menu was a little lacking.

This tiny gem of a restaurant tucked away in charming uptown Kingston is one of our favorite dining destinations. Anything you order from the ever-changing tapas menu is sure to delight. This past weekend we shared small plates of snails on toast, delectable roasted bone marrow, sausage with white beans and perfectly spiced lamb meatballs with a dollop of whipped... More

As someone who spends most of their time in a restaurant, the last thing I want to do is go to one after I leave work. In this area I have gotten bored with standard menus and the items on them are things that I can just whip up and home. My partner and I have been going to the... More

This wonderful restaurant in uptown Kingston has been voted the Best Restaurant for Tapas in the Hudson Valley for several years in a row. Taste anything on the interesting menu that regularly changes and you will not be disappointed. The small plates are fun to share and their low prices makes it enjoyable to order several things.

Appalling. As a frequent visitor to this restaurant from Manhattan, I was in shock to hear how disrespected my friends were there when I recommended this place. The waiter there told my 2 pregnant friends that they could not accommodate them after requesting to switch tables because a friend had joined them. As a former restaurant owner I am in... More

A fun vibe with authentic eats and nice selection of pours! Can't wait to return. It closes a bit early, I think 10pm. That is the single thing I didn't like. Very clean and room to move.

Went there on Thursday night. I felt like I was in the west village of Manhattan. Really great but they were out of 2 things I wanted to order.
