Came here with my wife while visiting ABQ. Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner. We ordered a few tapas. The food was so flavorful and the service was great. Good cocktail choices as well. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a great date night meal.

The place is charming. The food was good but the prices were very high. $14 for a few pieces of pita with goat cheese and chicken was too much. Service was quite good. The ventilation system was horrible. I had too take a shower to...More

What a ton of fun! Didn’t make a reservation so we were seated at the bar which was a blast. Candace was tending & waited on us & she rocks! She made us feel like we were her only concern (even though she was actually...More

Someone recommended the house wine and I’m glad- we had a bottle of the red and enjoyed it with our food. It was a very hot night so the restaurant was quite warm- it didn’t take away from the experience. We had the fried avocado,...More

My wife and I had a wonderful time here last week while visiting Albuquerque. We were staying in Old Town and walked about 3/4 mile to the restaurant. It's in a rather unassuming building, but with a wonderful decor indoors. From the moment we went...More
