I'm sure there are better tapas places, and I'm sure there are worse. The food was good, but not superlative. We ordered 4 dishes, and two of them stood out for very different reasons. The spinach and manchego empanadas were divine. Alas, the bacon-wrapped dates were overcooked dates wrapped in a long strip of undercooked bacon. The atmosphere was lively--especially if you are sitting at the communal table--and the staff friendly. Much to our surprise, upon handing our Visa card to the waitress, we discovered they ONLY accept American Express (seriously?). Luckily we happened to have cash on us. Overall a nice place, but not a standout choice.
