“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Great authentic hostess. Lovely complimentary aperitif and salad while we looked at the menu. We sat outside in the little cordoned off area on Wexford Street in October. It sounds awful but it was cozy, warm and secluded.

We shared (please excuse my ignorant English translations) pigs cheek, white chorizo, Patatas Bravas (like I've never had it before mmmmmm....) calamari, paella of the day and prawns with garlic and chili. They were all delicious and the service was excellent.I can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu - all of it!

Thanks for the lovely review.. if you liked the pig's cheek, maybe try the rabo de toro (oxtail) if you're back with us again as I think you'd love it! Hope to see you again soon!

“Best Tapas Restaurant in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Ate here one Saturday night. It was so good we stayed on for an extra bottle of wine instead of going to the pub. All the food we had was excellent. We will have to go back to try some more options from the menu. Staff were lovely, prices very reasonable and a great atmosphere.

Highly recommend booking ahead and going for dinner here.

Thanks for the lovely review - hope to see you back again soon to try more from the menu! We've had a couple of customers take away their menu with the dishes they tried marked and returned with the same menu to ensure they tried something new! Very organised to say the least and great idea! See you soon!

“Ola Lola!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

It is advisable to book this restaurant in advance. Having made several attempts to get a table, I finally got in! We drove 50 miles & chanced our luck on a wet Monday night, arriving at 6:30pm, we were greeted by lovely staff and the food was even lovelier. We had a large selection of the tapas, the anchovies ,Tumbet and squid ink paella being my personal favourites. The Crema Catalina was also very good, as were the wines & coffee. Service is cheerful and it is a happy buzzing & warm environment. Love this place! Many times glowing reviews of restaurants leave you scratching your head but this one lives up to expectation..... I don't understand the negative reviews as I have been in San Sebastian and this is up there and above many good Spanish Tapas bars I have encountered........Can't Wait to go back!

“Consistently great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Discount any 1 star reviews below - particularly the one from the reviewer that chose not to eat there as they 'dropped in out of the rain' and were surprised to find a gem like this booked out (he seems to be easily offended and regularly walks out). I have been disappointed on several occasions not to secure a table here, but completely understand, as when I have been lucky enough to get it, it's been fantastic.

The staff are incredibly friendly, but never in your face. The service is excellent and efficient. The food never disappoints and the general buzz has made it a favourite for my wife and I, particularly when we're out with friends or entertaining guests from abroad.

I cannot tell you how happy we are to have this tapas restaurant in our area and wish them continued success - feck the begrudgers!
