Restaurant has a beautiful decor and only is not more cozy and romantic because of the loud and omnipresent noise, including families with little kids. The service is impeccable and very courteous. The food is fantastic! I had 2 chorizo empanadas (I could not resist ordering an extra one), the cod fritters (served with an amazing garlic sauce) and a... More

Some of my family and I came here for an early dinner. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our food. This is a great place for tapas, everyone to share a few selections off the menu. They have an impressive wine selection-although most can be purchased only by the bottle. Also a great cocktail menu, with fun and... More

We called ahead for a table for 6 on a Wednesday. They said they don't take reservations for parties under 7 people but if we got there soon they would have a table set up for us, which they did. Our table was a large table set for 10 so another party of 4 was sat on the other end.... More

This was our first time eating at a tapas-style restaurant. So we needed a little help navigating the menu but our waitress helped us out. We ended up ordering about 5 different things, though I can only remember 4 of the items. But I know we loved everything we ordered. Of the things I can remember we had: marinated olives... More

I sat at the bar and was served so elegantly by Kyle. While waiting for a table I was engaged by a lovely group of Mexican nationals and while eating had a great conversation with a Saudi national. What a cross section of America and what a fabulous menu. I ate til I was over full and still craved tasting... More

Read about this place and decided to try as we love having tapas when in Spain. We were seated in the alcove which was a bit confining, but was OK. The tapas were nothing like in Spain, being more smaller portions rather than small bites. We had the dates wrapped in bacon which we both found to be over sweet... More

If you have not been to this restaurant, do yourself a favor and just go! My girlfriend and I came here on a recent trip to Portland and absolutely loved it. I have been to several tapas restaurants and this place stands above them all. The server was very knowledgeable and kind. The ambiance was fantastic. It was very busy... More
