This is the place where the Tapas concept has been brought home to modern american cuisine. Inventive twists on tapas create a great culinary experience unexpected in this rather small but well visited town. As unexpected a find as the Spruce Goose in this location....More

A fun place for delicious & creative small plates, a great place for traditional or creative paella for two or a tableful. Service is attentive and professional, but also very helpful & Oregon-style friendly. Drinks are equally creative and unique.

Great little Tapas place - I was there in off season, so they didn't have all of the cured meats - but the tapas I had were top notch. Intimate little setting and nice long bar as well.
