Loved every single plate we ordered Lots of flavor and spices. Patata brava, garlic shrimp, garlic mushroom, and calamari. Of course you have to try the sangria and the flan.

We went on a Saturday night for small plates, and they have a wide selection and very reasonable prices. Three plates was plenty for this couple. Enjoyed the empanadas, scallops with rice, and ham croquettes. Liked the inexpensive white wine the waiter recommended, too. But the place was lit up as bright as a pancake house and very noisy. Atmosphere... More

In a group of 15 we had a long table and service worked out fine even if they handed out to few plates of the same in the beginning. Staff attentive and the octopus and grilled squid was great. Cut rib eye was also good but best was the lamb-chops Great rioja , marquis d'Arienza 2010 through out the meal... More

I love this restaurant. Amazing food literally everything I've eaten: calamari, goat cheese salad, spicy potatoes, Paela, chops. The sangria red wine can't find any better. Portion sizes large and very decent price. We went there group of 6 tried 6 different dishes paid about 20 each. If sangria crowd, get a pitcher instead of individual cups; price wise makes... More

I remember the old cafe Iberico (which wasn't that long ago)...intimate, dark with candles on the table, wine bottles lining that walls, economical tapas with large portions....now it's blindingly bright, wine bottles are replace with escutcheons each brilliantly illuminated by their own spot light, and the tapas which used to cost $6.50-7.00 are now $12 or more. It was always... More

My friend took me here and it is her favorite restaurant in Chicago and it's easy to see why. The food is SO GOOD - definitely have the pulpo!! Her kids loved the food as well and the adults were all about it. Definitely give this place a try!

This place has a nice European feel and was extremely busy on the night we visited. The tapas selection was extensive but I particularly liked the patatas bravas and the garlic shrimp. The main lamb dish was excellent. Good service for such a large room.

Thank Pierre4823
