Everyone ordered what sounded good and we all shared. Enough food for all the folks with us. If there was a big eater, portions might have not been hearty enough.

We stopped in for a drink while waiting for a tour. We did a great 3 wine flight, all of which was good. We ordered a small sweet potato with bourbon sauce that was great. The bartender was very nice, we would have definitely come back for dinner if we had time

We were looking for a place to eat with a patio. Sat outside at first but the traffic was really loud. Went inside and it was great. Until the band started playing. It was so loud we couldn't talk to each other at all, had to scream. I wish they would have told us there was going to be a... More

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.
