This is Catalonian food. The chef, Jose, ran a food trip to Spain that my cousins went on. He is constantly walking around the restaurant, talking to his customers and checking on things. The service and waitstaff are excellent. Food is mostly Paella and Tapas....More

An absolute treat! Everything we tried was delicous and excitingly different. MI Nombre No Es Rita was the perfect drink to begin with, then Xupa Xups, Nuestras Bravas, Ataula Montadito, Croquetas and Pato...and then dessert! Robbie, our waiter, made the evening even more fun by...More

I've eaten in hundreds of Spanish restaurants, many wonderful fusion restaurants. This is NOT one of them. The food look cute, but it does not taste good. It was a waste of my money. Friendly stuff, good atmosphere, but I went to eat, and ended...More
