“taste of Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Amazing.
it is really!
the place is so nice, so warm, so perfect for a dinner...right in the city center...staff very polite and ready to help...food is delicious (excpet patatas bravas...really different from the real ones) and it's pretty nice to have something so spanish to go to eat to.
Customers are from 20s to 50s and usually really nice and good looking persons...I was there during a business trip and I have to say that the choice was absolutely right.
I will come back once in Budapest again!
Just a comment: unfortunately no credit/debit card allowed...only cash. Possible to pay in Euro but exchange rate is totally far from the reality and the change would be in HUF...but don't worry...there are plenty ATM right around the restaurant.

“Enjoyable meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Spent a nice evening at this tapas bar. Found the atmosphere to be busy and bustling, if a little noisy, but this tends to come with this style of food/eatery. Service was good, and dishes were brought out steadily. Food overall was very good, although a few of the dishes lacked a bit of flavour we thought. Best dishes were patatas bravas, the meatballs and the duck breast with the balsamic reduction - all very tasty. Overall we enjoyed the meal we had here, but did find it to be a little on the expensive side compared with other restaurants we ate at in Budapest.

“Extraordinary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Best tapas in town! Try their Iberico ham and sangria. Don't forget to bring cash, they do not accept credit cards but the area has lots of banks and ATMs. Comparable to Barcelona!
