“Not as good as I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Amazing sangria, which makes sense, but I did not enjoy the food as much as I hoped. The ambiance was nice though.

“Pretty Authentic Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. The food was similar to what you would expect in a tapas bar in Spain (except for the Tortilla Espanola). It's great that you can get jamon Iberico in North America now, one of Spain's true treasures.

Service was good, but the kitchen's timing was a little weird. Don't miss the vanilla cured braised pork belly! The only let down was that there were no mainated anchovies.

“We found this wonderful spanish Tapas Restaurant while on vacation in San Diego!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We were on the San Diego Trolley Tour and decided to make a stop for lunch in the Gas Lap District. We walked just a few blocks down and to the right and decided to give this place a try for lunch. It was delicious! The Tapas concept is very good. The food is very tasty and you order as much or as little as you want. The Sangria was good too!

“Enjoy Authentic Spanish Tapas at this Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

There is large variety of Spanish tapas at this restaurant in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. The food is delicious. There is flamenco dancing in the basement on certain days of the week. There is a large bar area on the main level and additional dining upstairs. Delicious!

“Great Tapas Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a very good Tapas restaurant and bar. I ate their with a large group and their service was very good, and the food was also very good. I love the Tapas concept and this place is a great place to share food and beverages with friends.
