A very small restaurant with a long and well stock wine bar. Find Spanish Tapas small plate selections to accompany your wine selection. If not at the bar go for a table facing the street and the large street front windows for people watching.

Sure, it's not the most inexpensive place in Philly. However, there are tapas you won't find at other tapas bars, even in Spain. The shishito peppers and the Brussels sprouts were fantastic, and I'm not a vegetarian!

Absolutely couldn't sing higher praises about this charming restaurant! We had about 5 shared tapas plates between two people and it was more than enough, and we loved every single bite! My guest and I spent a semester in Spain together while we were in college, and we absolutely felt like we were back in Spain. The food was authentic,... More

Oh my heavens! This is probably one of the most delicious meals I have had. The service was excellent. The food is amazing. The white sangria is very refreshing. I had the bacon wrapped dates that absolutely melt in your mouth. The special salad was jamon and melon. Paper thin slices of deliciously cured ham and juicy cantaloupe mixed with... More

Douglas mixed up an espresso martini which was out of this world! The white sangria's are delicious and very refreshing after a hot day. The food is tapas so we ended up with 4 different dishes along with the complimentary dish of assorted olives. The stuffed dates are wrapped with a smokey bacon and were a huge hit. We also... More

This is one of several restaurants owned by Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran--they're turning 13th St. into a veritable empire of fine restaurants! We visited on a Sunday night, and the place was packed, but even with the crowds the service was prompt, well-paced, and friendly. The food was wonderful! The selection is not huge, but it's a very good... More

Excellent tapas in a quaint setting. Enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates, the vegetable sampler, the scallops and the spare ribs - all were really good accompanied with a Spanish red wine. Service was excellent and the watermelon sorbet with rosemary shortbread topped off the meal!

My friend and I stopped for an afternoon drink and snack. We ordered drinks - a unique, delicious cocktail and cava. Then we shared two small plates. I ordered a plate with fried goat cheese, beets, pistachios, cherries, spinach, and a sauce - so delicious! And the portion of goat cheese was generous. My friend ordered eggplant fries - long...

This small and intimate wine bar and restaurant in Center City serves an outstanding selection of Spanish dishes with innovative combinations of tapas and a great wine list. The small plates are truly exceptional and the service was excellent.

We happened upon this restaurant last night, and they quickly found us a table on the sidewalk. We had no idea of what the food would be like. Wow! Were we ever surprised! The vegetable board was amazing. My husband's grenache by the glass (year 2010) was stunning. The meatballs were delicious, and the octopus flavorful. Service was solid. It... More
