We enjoyed a shared meal consisting plates of sautéed spinach, fried green beans, roasted padrone peppers, pork empanadas, and sautéed garlic chili shrimp. Each item was eloquently prepared and seasoned deliciously!

My g/f and I arrived a bit later on a Friday evening when the crowd was starting to taper off a bit. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and were seated at a cozy corner table. Service was attentive, and the food was really tasty. Our favorites were the empanadas, the bacon-wrapped dates, and the sangria. Nice decor as well.

We sampled/shared ham croquettes and empanadas while sipping Spanish Albarino wine. The food was delicious, the setting lovely and the service excellent.

We visited for a light dinner. Food was good but our selection was a little greasy (calamari, pork plate) but tasty. Beer selection is limited but features local brews and changes frequently.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to the Oregon coast. Loved it! The food was excellent. My husband and I shared a couple of the small plates and that was plenty for us, leaving enough room for dessert. We appreciated not having any leftovers as we were traveling and had no place to store them. Otherwise, we might... More

Of the many downtown McMinnville choices, we decided to give this one a try and needless to say, we weren't disappointed. Juan was our server and I asked him to bring me a dinner selection they specialized in which. One plate was shrimp and the other roasted chicken in stuffed peppers. The third was the empanadas. All were very tasty,... More

We enjoyed a late lunch after a wine tasting while visiting the Willamette Valley doing some wine tastings. It is mostly a tapas style restaurant and we enjoyed sharing several plates. The blue cheese stuffed dates were delicious. And the fall salad was very good with fresh produce for the nearby area.

Met with a college to review her organization's situation. Wonderful paella. Great tapas. And a Spanish wine we had had in Germany was out on the menu. Our wonderful server checked the stock and found 2 bottles. That made the dinner especially nice and memorable.

Who would expect such fabulous Spanish food (and nice service and a beautiful space) in McMinnville, Oregon? I know the area has many gourmet restaurants to complement the multiple wineries, but of the several we ate in, this one really stood out. I have not even cared for Spanish food in the past, but this place must be tried!
