The service is excellent, the place is clean, nice and good looking. But, the food is not to good, the Paella is overcooked, and the chorizo could be better and also the goat. The sangria was good.

Atmosphere was very good and the place was very busy so thought we would try. We ordered the paella which, after two mouthfuls turned our stomachs upside down. The food was barely warm, must have been sitting in the pan for hours upon hours. It resembled more rice pudding than paella. In a word disgusting, also there was no apologies... More

There are a variety of "tapas" to taste. Shouldn´t miss the classic Tortilla de patatas and to drink a nice pitcher of Sangria. A real nice atmosphere sorrounded by locals and many spaniards. Waiters really earn their tip, don´t hesitate to ask about the specials or doubts you might have. A good quality - price relation. If you don´t have... More

Had a lovely Basque meal here for dinner. Ordered some pintxos, small tapas-like plates at the bar. Pan con tomate and garlic with jamon serrano. Also some tiny grilled chorizo sausages. We also ordered Pulpo a la Gallega or grilled octopus Galician style with olive oil, potatoes and mild pimenton or smoked paprika. All were delicious. Wine selection was decent... More

Surrounded by a charming environment, my family and I were delighted with the food and nservice. The entree, a Spanish tortilla, was delicious and the main course incredibly tasteful, very hard to come by today. Last but not least we had quite a good cup of coffee plus some complimentary shots of traditional liquors. Should you come to Santiago, do... More

As a Camino Veteran I was interested in this Basque Place and was not disappointed. It was authentic, welcoming, clean with AC. I had pintxos and the lomo. It was a superb meal in a great setting. If you are near the Belle Artes area. I recommend.

This charming restaurant is not far from the Museo Belle Artes. There is an English menu but some of the language is quite hard to follow with the result that our orders were not as expected. However the food was delicious and reasonable and the atmosphere is great.

Very conveniently located in the Bellas Artes neighborhood in Santiago´s financial district. Ambience is nice and comfy and the service was good and efficient. Food was good but can improve. Do I recommend this place? Yes I do. Nothing fancy but good food.

We had dinner here whilst staying in Santiago. We sat at the bar and planned on ordering pintxos from the display, but decided they didn't look that great and chose from the menu instead. We ordered 4 starter / tapas dishes to share, which we quickly realised was too much as the serves were quite large. We had croquettas which... More
