Casual, yet upscale dining room with beautiful, fluted pendular lighting. Incredibly tasty tapas...our favourite being their garlic chili shrimp and the green beans with blue cheese and hazelnuts...even their portions listed as small were plenty large. Four tapas were filling for our party of two, and thank goodness we had room for the absolutely amazing chocolate torte. Such a treat... More

My wife and I looked forward to eating here after reading several good reviews but were disappointed with the food. We liked the atmosphere and our server was very helpful and attentive. We ordered several tapas. The empanadas were good but the others were very greasy and one was so greasy we couldn't even eat it. Not what we expected.

Roasted pork shoulder with sherry, garlic, pimenton,heirloom beans and braised kale. Also the sauteed green beans with Valdeon blue cheese and walnuts and the Sauteed garlic chili shrimp with Calabrian chili, piment d'espelette, aioli. We has a second helping of the... More

Found this gem while strolling in McMinnville. Nice ambience, helpful waiter and great food. Tapas were nicely portioned and delicious. Chef helped us select three different dishes to try and all were excellent.

We were just overnighting here and were surprised to find such an authentic and beautiful Spanish tapa restaurant. The selection of small plates was extensive, with a nice wine list to complement them. The restaurant is lovely, warm colors, beautiful lighting, we were so happy to have found it.

It was amazing! We opted to not do the tapas but the neighboring table was looking and ahhing over theirs so I take it as good sign. My husband loved the Spanish red wine recommendation and I had my favorite cocktail, a mojito. My husband had steak and I had seafood stew and both were delicious. We finished with coffee... More
