it was the worst experience we had in a restaurant. horrible service by the owner of the establishment, we were treated very badly because she complained that the prawns were burnt and really burnt.

I felt like I was back in Barcelona as soon as I walked in the door.. a friendly warm welcome that is not so common in Switzerland. We sat at the bar and Rita was perfect bar lady. Tasty cocktails, great food. First restaurant we've...felt excited about here for a while..More

On one side of the restaurant you can watch the chefs cooking through the open kitchen. They are Spanish and know their craft perfectly. The tapas are simply amazing and we had the best tortilla we’ve ever had. Our recommendation of a wine matching the...tapas is the Verdejo white wine. Light, fruity and lively. Ginally, when our baby became uneasy to the end of our dinner the restaurant’s owner took care of him without further ado and was very understanding and helpful.More

I Recomend this Restaurant to 100% it‘s simply amazing! I was there with my girlfriend and the food is just amazing! The prices are high, comparing them with spanish prices for the same food, but like everything in switzerland 😉

We went there without reservation and still found a big table after waiting a bit. We were 4 and ordered around 10-12 tapas with a bottle of white wine. All tapas were absolutely delicious, we couldn't wish for more! I highly recommend this place for...the authentic Spanish food, whose high quality will most probably surprise you. The service was so and so, not as good as the food. Some waiters were very professional, others not so customer-oriented. But the tapas were served quite fast and all were hot, plus the atmosphere is pleasant and cosy, away from the noisy and crowded city centre. My favourite dish: shrimps in olive oil and garlic (Gambas al ajillo). I really felt like I was eating in Tenerife and not in Switzerland. :-)More

I have been in this restaurant with some friends but not sure about the quality of the kitchen. The atmosphere of restaurant is very familiar, small and cosy. The service was fast and pretty heplful with their suggestions. But the best was the food, I...got really surprised about the tapas they had. EVERYTHING delicious. My favourite the pulpo a la plancha very tender and with a special canarian sauce Mojo. Como buena española no puedo hacer otra cosa que recomendarlo. Aqui sì que de verdad se saborea la auténtica comida española.More

Spontaneous visit for glass of wine and patatas bravas. The Portuguese red was perfect in temperature, the potato dish as original as it can be prepared, compliments! The service in the beginning somewhat distinguished opened up to warm and friendly way as my visit came...to an end. Will return to experience the other delicacies on the menu!More

In my opinion this is one of the hidden gems of dining in Luzern. It's a couple of blocks from the river past the dam which doesn't make it remote, it's just away from the tourist areas, probably 15 mins walk from Chapel Bridge. We...had a variety of tapas and salad and every dish was perfect. Service was speedy and the outdoor area is in a quiet square. Your fellow diners will be locals. Pricing is not bad for Luzern but this is all quality so there's none of the overpriced junk that is served up along the river. Do yourself a favour and get down here. Best meal in Switzerland yet!More

We had a wonderful dinner, the waiter selected our tapas off the menu because it wasn’t available in English and we had 5 in total and all delicious. This place is a little hidden gem, off from the main tourist attractions which is lovely :)...would highly recommend visiting.More

I was not in a mood to eat their tapas, I ate the entrecote. Excellent. Very friendly staff, especially Maria.
