This is one of my favorite restaurants in OR wine country. The atmosphere is calm and inviting and the food is delicious! We ordered the Carne Paella which was bursting with flavor. Be sure to imbibe while you're there, the cocktail menu and wine selection leaves little if anything to be desired.

We were first timers at this restaurant and trying "Spanish" cuisine. We had the flank steak meal with the potatoes, green beans and it was the best tasting steak and potatoes meal we have ever had. Great flavor, moist, melted in your mouth and the flavor went on for days.

Great lunch featuring a variety of Spanish small plates. Located on historic 3rd street for an easy stop while visiting the local antique stores or en route to the nearby AVAs. Try the yummy cheese tasting and let your server guide you.

Table for 8, and we wanted to try out many things on the menu. We had Sautéed Green Beans, Bacon Stuffed Dates, olives, Oregon Mushroom Cocas, and Mixed Paella. For some at the table, this was new foods, but for the others, they knew what the dishes were, and really liked them. We were there on a Monday night, so... More

A reservation is a must as this place gets busy, even during the week. Small but very good menu. We always stop here when in town.

This was a pleasant discovery in downtown McMinnville. They have an extensive wine menu, and many by the glass. The tapas are a delight, it is fun to share a variety. The tables are well soaced and the noise level is not disturbing. We enjoyed it immensely.
