We had 7 dishes between 2 and this was enough food, it came with bread too! Patatas bravas came with a lovely garlic sauce, wouldn’t recommend the spicy sausage- wasn’t the best meat! My boyfriend loved the ribs with honey and said the meat fell...off the bone! Overall lovely little place and worth a visit!More

Great Spanish restaurant with a large selection of tapas. Everything brilliantly cooked and seasoned, very professional service and a pleasant place. It is worth booking a table in advance.

There’s a minimum of 3 portions per person and portions are €4.50 each currently. We both enjoyed the followed servings: Olives Iberico ham croquettes (mostly cheese with some tiny flecks of ham mixed in) Courgette tomato cream Mini kefta with tzatziki Papas bravas (sauce to...die for!) Poultry fritters with garlic sauce (delicious sauce!) And a pitcher of sangria In all a great meal but the sangria is a bit overpriced IMHO. Service was good.More

Food: 5 ***** It was really tasty and you should asked for more bread in the first place :) Something that can cause dispute is that the tapas always had an odd number, for example if I order meat balls there would be 3 or...if I order chicken wings there would be 3, leaving us discussing who should eat the last one :D Atmosphere: 5 ***** Perfect lighting, no bright light, so it's very relaxing! Staff: Very friendly! The only thing that bothered me a little was that even though it's 2019 there was a sign at the entrance "Cash only" which is something I cannot understand why restaurant still do it nowadays. Thanks god we had enough cash on us but we usually don't have!More

This is a quaint little place tucked away and easily missed. The ambiance is perfect for a casual couples' dinner or a small group of friends. The menu is available in French, German, Dutch, Spanish and English. The waiter was so nice and approachable and...he made us feel welcome right away. We switched tables before we received our food and he had no problem with it. The tapas were incredible and very well done. My favorites were the risotto (with an amazing tinge of tarragon), the patatas bravas with a mildly spicy curry dipping sauce and the chorizo. The red sangría was sweet and served wonderfully (with a separate small glass of ice) in the most adorable half-liter pitcher. Very happy to have stumbled onto this understated quaint Spanish restaurant within walking distance of the Grand Place and Mannequin Pis.More

Had never noticed the poace although I walk by once in a while. It’s hidden away but once inside it’s quite nice. The tapas themselves were really nice. Quality and quantity were both very good. I will be back.

We are truly disappointed!! Me and my girlfriend went there and we have ordered many tapas. In every tapas the mainly ingredient was the garlic. I think that we will smell garlic for the next 3 months. Otherwise the Serrano ham was really really dry...and old. Very very bad quality of any tapas that we have tried. Horrible experience. Few times in our life we’ve eaten so bad. If u want to eat something good, don’t go here. Que lastima. Yo y mi novia fuimos a comer Aqui y pedimos muchas diferentes tapas. todas las tapas tenían un montón de ajo, también en platos adonde no debería estar. Creo que nuestro aliento Sabrá de ajo por melones por 3 meses. Experiencia horrible. Comida muy vieja y de mala calidad. Pocas veces hemos comidos así tan malo en nuestra vida. Si quieres comer algo bueno o comestible, que no vayas ahí.More

This place is just great! From The outside not very inviting but from the inside warm and nice! The staff is super friendly and working hard. The tapas are good! “Loved the chicken wings”! The sangria awesome and the price was very low. If I’m...back in Brussels I’ll definitely go to this place again! Make sure you make a reservation cause it’s gonna be packedMore

We visited quite late on Friday evening and we were not disappointed. The tapas was basic but very tasty, especially the bread. The staff were attentive but not overly so, which meant it was a relaxed evening. The only small criticism would be that there...were no prices on the English menu, although this is a reasonably priced establishment so it was not a shock when the bill came.More

This place is Dark and loud so I guess not for everyone but we enjoyed it, the tapas is well priced and plenty of alcohol to choose from so it’s worth a visit
