My wife and I came here on a Saturday night after arriving in wine country that evening. We have been to several tapas places around the country and this was a very good one in our opinion. Our service was top notch and the food and wine was right on. The potatoes/ Pappas thing was the best; as was the... More

After an afternoon of wine tasting, our friends took us to La Rambla for dinner. OMG. The four of us shared several small plates, each one more delicious than the last. The Mushroom flatbread pizza was amazing with it's great "chewy" crust and perfectly seasoned mushrooms. The Caldo de Mariscos (seafood stew) was to die for. Rich broth, just the... More

Four of us were at the McMinnville Art and Wine walk, and wanted to get some dinner. We did not have a reservation, but they got us in, at a great table by the window. All of us were very pleased with our dinners. The Empanadas are wonderful, as was my stuffed picillo peppers. The service was very good.

A yummy mojito. Tasty selection of tapas. Attentive service. The cheese plate was delicious; we chose Drunken Goat, Manchego, Idiazabel (sp). Each was excellent, served with olives, apple, nuts, pickled onion and bread with flavored olive oil for dipping. The smoked tuna salad was also outstanding. And the empanadas. This is a local gem on McMinnville's historic 3rd Street.

Wonderful experience on a street filled with outstanding restaurants. Every time I drive by I want to go to LaRambla again. Even love the way the name rolls off my longue :)

Make a reservation for dinner, but stop by anytime for drinks and Tapas. Beautiful bar. House infused liquors that make outstanding cocktails! Friendly staff too. Make sure you take the time to explore McMinnville's historic Downtown.

We discovered this place while visiting the McMinnville area and planned on maybe eating here. Then, while wine tasting down the street we started talking about it with the owner of a wine store. He said he knew the owners and would make a reservation for us. When we arrived we were greeted by one of the most enthusiastic and... More
