Wonderful food. For us a new and fresh perspective on tapas. Flavorful preparation of green beans with dates, almonds, paprika and lemon. Very earthy and satisfying. The Guisantes with peas, potato purée and mint was unexpected and so tasty. Great beverage/drink list. Service was attentive...More

The menu is all small portions meant to be shared. The octopus was amazing! The restaurant is dark and loud, but the service and food were great.

This is a wonderful small Spanish tapas restaurant. Great food and great service. They have a very nice selection of Spanish wines by the glass.
