Spanish restaurant with a variety of tapas and entrees. Most plates are good to very good but have ordered a few tapas in the past that were below expectations.

We have been to La Rambla many times. Ordering their tapas to share is our favorite rather than a dinner. It's a romantic setting and not conducive for families as much.

Location: The restaurant is conveniently located on Third Street (where everything happens in McMinville). Service: we found service very attentive and polite Food: The small paella is enough food for 2, and is definitely worth the 45-minute wait; it is one of the best paellas I've had in the US. It has great flavors, although I thought it needed a... More

I had a nice piece of fish on top of a sweet potato hash. Everything tasted great. The hash had a nice spicy flavor, and was loaded with bits of pork ham (too loaded, perhaps). To drink, I had their version of an Old Fashioned. They were not stingy with the booze, so I only had one. I would definitely... More

On a superbusy holiday weekend, we got in just a few minutes past our reservation time. Waiting area (curtained off, barely, from the tables) is cramped. But that is my ONLY criticism. The food was excellent+ and wine only made it even more enjoyable. This is the kind of place I will think about when I want to go to... More

Tapas are great. Pricey but good quality. Wine by the glass is overpriced. Excellent service. Paella was a little too salty, and braised beef was bland, but overall a nice meal.

For Valentine's Day, I took my wife for another visit to our go-to restaurant in McMinnville, Or. The food was truly unique, tasty, nicely prepared and delivered. If you are interested in Spanish tapas, I recommend this restaurant. The foods are rich, very tasty and filling. Cream sauces, chorizo, paella, salads and cheese plates dominate the menu. Not unlike higher-end... More

If you are in the mood to taste a variety of small plates, this is the place for you. They use fresh ingredients so everything we tried was great. My husband loved the clams & I especially enjoyed the shrimp.
