“Elegant restaurant with average food and show”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Went long time ago. Restaurant is very expensive. Service was nice, food average to bad and they offer a show that was far from being a Spanish flamenco show.I won't visit them again.

“Fantastic for Business or Personal Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Excellent service, very little English or even an English menus but don't let that stop you. Food is fresh and arrives at your table quickly. If you can't choose what you want, tell the waiter with your broken Spanish that you want to spend around xx dollars and let him bring you several dishes, wine of course is extra, went back twice in the week we were there on budiness

“HORRIBLE FOOD!!! COMIDA MALISIMA!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Some of the dishes looked like right out of a can, poor quality of the food and pricy. Good live music but there are many other good places to go...FORGET ABOUT THIS ONE!!! It's really bad!

“Amazing variety, Amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

With an enormous selection of tapas, the only challenge is deciding what you want.

Perfectly seasoned small dishes of fantastic food. Well executed dishes coupled with great personalized service. The staff know the menu and can help to avoid dishes that may clash as you build what I think is a unique experience in dining here in the San Jose area.
