There were three of us and we all shared tapas. It was average fare. Nice atmosphere outside but probably wouldn't return. The fresh bread was good though!

We went without reservations with a rowdy group of 6 and were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. Nice selection of tapas, pastas and entres. Lots of vegie and vegan selections. Extensive Spanish wine list, bit on the expensive side.

Although food is decent the service is beyond terrible. It took 45 minutes to get the first course. Dinner took two hours. I had to go to the owner to get another waiter to come take the order. This female waiter has just such a terrible and nasty attitude as does the owner. It is the absolute opposite of normal.... More

Great ambiance, excellent food and good service from our waiter. We were somewhat disappointed when we arrived... they have 6, 4 and 2 tops outside on this beautiful porch. We had requested outside. They tried to seat us at a 2 top squeezed in between 2 other tables. With so many open 4 tops my husband asked if we could... More

Food can be a bit variable and not cheap. Beautiful location with great outdoor space in the summer.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food was superbly prepared and presented. Not your run-of-the-mill fare. This is an excellent choice for an enjoyable evening in downtown Basalt.

Spent the weekend in Aspen Basalt area. Was here 4 years ago and never ate here. It was very good. Beet salad and Caesar salads were perfect. Saw someone else had a sangria, asked about it and they were happy to make it for me. Wasn't on the menu. I had wonderful rigatoni bolognese and my hubby had chicken piccata.... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always great. The wines are superb too. You should [plan on spending some time there as the service is not always fast (in fact usually slow)
