“Small but Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you are a tourist in Shanghai, this isn't for you, as you should enjoy the many styles of Chinese cuisine available. But, if you live in Shanghai or visit often, you'll enjoy this chance to visit Spain for just a few hours. Authentic and cozy, with a nice wine list. Take your time, order a few tapas at a time, then add some more. If your budget allows, order the 5J Jamon Iberico. There is a really nice flan to conclude your meal.

“Loving this restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Superb tapas in the heart of Shanghai. It's a small place and always look after us well. Only complaint is that they have taken the rose cava off the wine list!

“1st to review this small wonderful Spanish tapas restaurant & wine bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

What a great find in the ultra cool neighborhood of Xintaindi. We usually try and eat local when we are in China but after hearing about how good the food was here we ventured to try something not Chinese. I think the restaurant name means ham or pig so you need to enjoy the aged pork dish with a bottle of Spanish wine. The manager Vickie is a good friend of a friend and we just let her make recommendations for the best tapas to try as there were just the two of us and also our wine. Needless to say we had very filling evening full of conversation with Vickie who went to school in Chicago and spent time in San Francisco too. Tapas we had included: a very nice tasting plate of prosciutto, toast & tomato, a tasty hot spinach salad, a garlic shrimp dish, a surprising white fish dish, an excellent beef steak cubed dish, and a flavorful crème risotto.

The restaurant is small with about a dozen tables but we were able to get in and have and enjoyable evening. We were so full that we decided to walk back to our hotel and to walk off the wine.

This site has some good pics of the menu. http://www.dianping.com/shop/5996532/photos
