Having been to Spain, we totally enjoyed this tapas friendly restaurant in KC. Excellent service, nice food choices, and tasty Rioja wine!

The tapas here were very good and their drink menu is great as well. I would recommend the Spanish Coffee if you want a little bit of a show with your drink.

Used to be our favorite place for Happy Hours but the sangria is water with syrup. Good tapas but terrible sangria. We will not go back.
