Absolute best Spanish food in SE WI.

This place, although small, has become a favorite go to spot for consistently great food in a warm atmosphere. Great family fun dining experience without the pretentious junk you get at other "tapas" places. Real food, real people, real amazing every time.

This was my first visit at this restaurant. I went with business colleagues, probably about 8 people in our party total. The food was very good and tasty, but service was lacking. We were there over an hour (probably 1.5 hours total, or more), but that wasn't by choice. It took us that long to get everyone's dish. One of... More

Having been to Spain several times, and, having eaten “true” tapas, the palate bar is pretty high in this space. While the look and feel of the interior does have a “local, neighborhood” bistro appearance that you might find in Spain, that is where the comparisons end. Ok, that and the menu items. Pretty traditional, classic (albeit a bit Americanized)... More

Cute little place in downtown Racine. Stopped in for some apps to take home and was overall very pleased. Enjoyed an adult beverage served by Alex and ordered three small plates to go. As I waited for our dinner (my turn to cook -ha ha), Alex brought out a bread basket with hummus. Tasty. I ordered the almond meatballs, crab... More

Went here for the first time for the wife's birthday and we had a really nice dining experience! We were the first diners on a Tuesday night and it felt like we would have the place to ourselves however by the time we left, there was hardly a seat available. We ordered both of the Empanada dishes and they were... More

Fresh, creative recipes and delicious choices. I love the food here, my fav are the scallops. And the owners, Manny and Natalie are delightful. I love to recommend and patronize locally owned and operated businesses.

Had a great dining experience! Chef Manny shared his culinary skills with us, while his delightful wine complimented each course with authentic Spanish wines. A great time, with great food. Our new favorite!

My husband and I love going here and love exploring the new dishes. The menu is always changing. I love the various flavor combinations - things I would never have thought of putting together but creates a bold new taste! Cherries and chicken are my favorite. Plan ahead if you're going, they don't take reservations and it can be crowded,... More

This is a tapas menu. The chef is creative, and the food is delicious. The soup with seafood and chorizo is a meal in itself, and there are many paellas to choose from. Go with a group of people so you can share each other's choices. Make sure to choose a variety of hot and cold small plates. Try the... More
