Great place to eat, Spanish style Tapas in Staten Island. Excellent food choices, Cuban Bread Pudding was delicious for deserts. No free refills on soda or ice tea.

Great Spanish American restaurant right by the ferry across from the courthouse in Staten Island.. This place reminds you of the great hidden restaurants in Manhattan food is excellent service is great highly recommended parking is not easy and you can only make reservations if you have five or more but it's worth the wait
