The selection of Spanish beers id good and the... More

Intimately sized; invitingly European feel. But: the problems with the service (inattentive, slipshod, slow); the food (hold that salt, sea salt doesn't atone for the sin); the sick waitress without a mask.

Delicious tapas, great staff and a nice selection of Spanish wines, however the food comes out way too fast. I barely had time to enjoy my glass of wine. The stand-out dishes were the bacon wrapped dates and the mushrooms. Tip: Delay ordering your food if you wants to enjoy your drinks

The selection of tapas is great, affordable prices and great services. The chistorras and the Lentejas Soup are delicious!!

Just walked by and this is a real find. Huge tapas portions by European standards. The tuna was excellent and quite reasonably priced. Try the green beans too.

I ate at this restaurant during the week. The selection of tapas is outstanding and delicious! The staff were attentive, fast and helpful and made suggestions. Pretty good selection of wines. Ambiance is very "lounge-like", dark, but comfortable. I would recommend this restaurant.

Judging by the wonderful recommendations of our Hotel staff, we knew that it would be a popular place, so we made reservations for the four of us. Good thing we did, because the place was quite crowded. As we were being led to our table in the back room, we realized that this place is so much bigger than it... More

We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday evening around eight during the holidays. They were busy but encouraged us to wait at the bar for a table to open up, which we did. We were seated after about thirty minutes. The first "wave" of food arrived promptly, 10 minutes or so after ordering. All of the dishes ordered were... More

Maybe we caught them on a bad day. Tapas were pretty good. Lentil and chorizo soup was very good. Jamon serrano bruchetta was also very good. Spanish omelet was tasty. The palomilla steak we ordered medium well for my daughter was too rare and took a while. But what was most disappointing was the service. I kept having to look... More
