I've been here twice. Both experiences were great! Both times the chef has come out and talked to us, making sure that we are enjoying his food! I really respect a chef that does that. He cooks the food himself and it's his restaurant. He really wants to make sure that you're enjoying yourself and his food. The paella is... More

Stopped in for late evening snack. So glad we did! We had the asparagus aioli, chorizo with manchego cheese, patates with chipotle sauce and shrimp diablo. All were awesome. Finished off with flan and creme brulee for dessert. Lovely, calm, relaxing atmosphere. Great service!

one of the best places for tapas I haved in the States. Cozy and authentic atmosphre in the heart of the New Orleans Garden District. We started out with a cup of white bean fabada soup to warm up and get in the mood. followed with several vegetable dishes including brussel sprouts with havarti, asparagus, and an egg plant casserole....

Had a late dinner here at the advice of the niece from Tulane. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our choices. The paella is definitely worth ordering, as you can sample lots of other dishes while waiting as it is prepared. We especially enjoyed the mushrooms. Alas, her favorite dessert was not available, it had sold out. Next time we plan... More

I just came from Spain this year and this tastes just like it! Especially the do it yourself tapas- excellent idea.. involves you in the food (a cultural experience- how you would eat it IN Spain). The decor is beautiful and cozy.

If you want a taste of Spain, this is the place. My fiancé and I returned from Spain a month ago and had to try this restaurant. We were transported back to Europe through the atmosphere, friendly service and especially the food. The owner is from Barcelona and is extremely friendly and waits his own tables. The interior of the... More

My wife and I were trying restaurants outside the Quarter and happened by accident across this little gem in the river bend area. A local happened to walk by and raved about the food. We came back later the next evening and were met by Xavier, a talkative and informative master Chef who just exudes passion for his craft. We... More

Some of the best lamb anywhere. We really like the menu and have always been happy with our choices. The staff works hard to please and the owner is often onhand asking guests for input. We like the atmosphere. Street parking is usually easy to come by and we've never had to wait for a table so it's not only... More

I'd like to say that this place is doing a good job with what they have to work with, but they're not. To begin with, they actually tell you to order "sushi style." You are given a slip of paper with some, not all, of the items on the menu, and you are supposed to figure out which ones you... More
