We went to this place the other day. Party of 6 and had a great time. Prices are not that bad if you mostly order from Vocas or small plates. The size of the plates are more than adequate and prices are reasonable. Service was good, nothing outstanding. I would try it again but not for heavy dinner.

We missed the entrance, but we got there. Just look for the lit up Imperial sign that says entrada. This is like a tapas restaurant. We were... More
