Recommended by owner of home we rented on North shore. Good variety. Great presentation. Wonderful flavors. Seafood particularly tasty. Very informed staff that knew how each plate was prepared, and number of servings per plate with the tapas format.

Food here is very tasty and the service is good. I know tapas are not large, but we were somewhat disappointed at the size of the portions here - especially given the price.

There are no words to describe how amazing our dinner was. The food was outstanding and the sangria was amazing. We ordered six different plates, two desserts and four sangrias. We went during happy hour so we got 25% off our bill, so the price...More
