The Salmon was excellent, the atmosphere was very relaxing and the service was great. Just wish it was close to where I live.

We had an excellent lunch at Cork, which we ducked into out of the rain. The mussels were quite outstanding and everything was well prepared and very tasty.

For those looking for a classic but unique restaurant, this place is a find. The frontage is quite modest, but the interior, especially the lower floor, is well set up and comfortable for dining, while the upstairs is more for socializing with a bar. Our food was delicious, with well balanced flavors typical of Spanish, Brazilian and Italian. As it... More

Amateur wine connoisseurs, we tried three different flights; all were okay except one white we did not like. Most of the selections offered we did not recognize. The corn and shrimp chowder was tasty as was a fish tapas, but the beef tacos were a little tough. The portions of food were what we expected from tapas: for two people,... More

Nice tapas place. Food was good and service was fine. No blame to the server, but the computer system has some problem and there was an issue with our order, so it took longer than expected. We had beef tacos (not too spicy, so ask for hot sauce if you want it pumped up a bit), Tuna Tartare (nicely prepared)... More

This restaurant is a real find in the quaint historic downtown waterfront area of New Bedford. It specializes in tapas and small plates but is not entirely Spanish. We had a cauliflower tabbouleh that was refreshing and delicious. The lobster crostini was wonderful and a special for the night with scallops and pears was absolutely wonderful. The cheesesteak rolls were... More

Love their scallops. Good wine selection or can do wine flights. Better to have people to share the tapas. Very interesting dishes especially seafood. Across the highway from the pier.

I went there with family on a Thursday night. The building is very old, in the historic district facing the waterfront. The food was delicious- very fresh fish! The scallops were wonderful. We over ordered, then over ate. The servings were generous compared to other tapas restaurants I have been to. The server was attentive. The interior was small and... More

Wonderful experience all around. Best I have had in the area. Very fresh and local ingredients play a large role in the menu ideas. The clam chowder lobster crustini and ahi tuna will impress.

I've been here a couple of times, once for dinner and another time just to enjoy drinks at the bar. This is a very cool spot with friendly, service and good food. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
