We've been here at least three times, once with a party of 14. Always, the service, food, and ambiance was great for the occasion. It can get loud, but the food and wine make up for it. Yes, it's a tapas bar, but the flavors...More

We stopped by for a Saturday lunch after hearing a good recommendation for Coqueta. Traveling with two kids, ages 7 & 8, we were a little concerned about Tapas food choices for them. Easy enough, they had buttered noodles along with hard crusted house made...More

We had a lovely evening sitting at the bar in front of the kitchen watching each small plate be made. We ordered several tapas and a reasonably-priced bottle of wine. The place was packed and had quite a buzz to it. A very enjoyable evening.

Lots of wonderful food to choose from. Tapas style with a twist. Squid, meatballs, and steak were all memorable small plates. And don’t forget dessert either. Well worth the visit.

I'm originally from Castilla-León, Spain. And I have to say, I always get amazed of how some so-called Spanish restaurants are full of people spending lots of money for food that is expensive, not good, and definitely not Spanish by any means! First, the name...More

As others have said, casual is fine. If you're there in the evening, remember to bring a jacket cause it does get chilly even in the summer.
