My sister, niece, and I had dinner here while visiting Old Town during a trip to Washington, DC. It was a busy Saturday night yet it offered a relax and laid back ambiance with historic Old Town decor. Varied menu with a nice selection of sangria. The only negative is that service was only so-so; Our server was very polite... More

We stopped by during the St. Patricks Day parade. We had the special - 3 tapas for $22 and $2 sangrias. The food was plentiful with enough to share a variety of dishes. The food was fresh and the service was good.

We made reservations for Valentines Day dinner. We arrived just before our reservations and were seated promptly. Wonderful evening, great pitcher of house sangria, and 5 tapas plates did us just fine. We're a patron of another tapas restaurant in Crystal City and this is a much better value. Service was leisurely but we weren't in a hurry.

The food was delicious...the service was beyond slow from the get-go. Yeah it was a Saturday night but that should be expected. The Ensalada de Aguacate with shrimp & avocado was delicious as were the Buey a La Plancha - thin slices beef and the Park Con Lentejas - the duck was so moist & tender it almost melted in... More

We got the three tapas deal, and they came at a size good enough for both os us. The decor is simple yet wonderful, and the food is great.

Mainly let down by the server not accepting the 25% reward/reduction we had printed off at the end of September for our first visit claiming that there had been a change of management and the discount could not be honoured. Being typically British we put up with this but on return research on the web shows no change of ownership... More

Walked in New Year's Eve around 6 pm. We sat at a high top table in the bar. Great service, great meal. Hubby ordered a beet and goat cheese salad to start and I had butternut squash soup. We then shared 4 tapas, one vegetable stuffed pasta, shrimp in spicy garlic butter, fried potatoes and asparagus with a mushroom relish.... More

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. I did some research before traveling to Old Town (Alexandria) and knew that I wanted to attend a flamenco performance on Wednesday night.

We actually went for Christmas Eve 2015. My husband is from Spain and he was impressed with the authenticity of the Spanish tapas. We had a very nice leisurely evening not being rushed out the door.
