Nice local place.

We have eaten there once before, for dinner during a snowstorm, but that really doesnt constitute a reviewable experience. This time we were with friends for lunch. We lingered long, had a great time, with good tapas. The atmosphere is good, the food is a step above that, and the service... read more

Go... just go, you won't be disappointed. Try the goat cheese fried ball (cant remember the exact name), but they were awesome. Pretty crowded, but excellent and fast service. Decent wine list and our entire party at leas liked most of the dishes. So... just go!

We had a party of four and we shared a lot of tapas while we were there. Nothing that was super fantastic but it was good. Nice wine selection.

Even though the restaurant was very crowded on the Friday night we dined (9:45pm seating), the food and wine came quickly and was tasty. We stuck to the tapas menu, and for the most part enjoyed all the dishes we tried. The $12 wine flight was a good value.

Fried goat cheese, those three words are all that matter. Order those to give your taste buds an orgasm. Great location, lots of people watching and yet comfy to enjoy the cute patio.

Love this place - very consistent, high quality, flavorful food! Really enjoy the ambiance; the garden level entrance with all the Mediterranean tile feels so cozy and transported to distant place. The sangria is robust, and the tapas are large for tapas. I almost wish they were smaller so you could sample more items! Love the sizzling shrimp and anything... More

Good meal. Shared 5 tapas with my husband. Crostini with artichoke & goats cheese, Lamb meal balls, calamari, beef steak(thin), spinach with pine nuts, rasins & garlic. Food was very tasty. The restaurant had a real Spanish atmosphere, but was very noisy. Enjoyed the meal, but avoid of you want a quiet meal.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
