Delicious Small Plates

Our late lunch on a recent Saturday was excellent from start to finish. The restaurant was about 1/2 full when we showed up without reservations so we were able to get right in. It's a narrow longer shaped space with a small bar at the very back, so some tables are squeezed in quite tight, but it... read more

This unique, intimate restaurant in Santa Fe is worthy of the hype. Delicious food - I ordered the bruschetta and it was not your typical slice of bread with a tomato/garlic/olive oil - the bread was smothered in crimini mushrooms with a cream base and came with a fried egg on top. Sound weird? It worked! I also ordered the... More

This Spanish tapas restaurant was the best 2 meals we had in Santa Fe and probably one of the top 10 restaurants I have had the pleasure of dining in anywhere. Very creative and delicious food with s nice wine list. Each dish was a delight. We especially enjoyed the shrimp, roasted artichokes, roasted brussel sprouts and pataas bravas. Don't... More

We had one of the better waiters ever, Pablo. Ask for him if possible, definitely worth it. The food was excellent, Cubano sandwich for lunch outstanding. Good appetizers also, but a weak wine list.

Solid Spanish wine list but recommend exploring their sherry selection. Great selection of tapas. Good service. Chef kind enough to pay us a visit. Great value and highly recommend.

Tapas for dinner when you are not in Spain does not usually appeal to me. But we went to this restaurant with friends. The flavors and food combinations were wonderful. Great bottle of wine for reasonable price. Wonderful, smiling service. Will go again next time in Santa Fe.

great local restaurant serving small plates. Chef is wonderful and food is also. Can get a bit pricey when you have a large group but food is worth it. Often a little wait since it is small and very popular.

Wonderful Bistro...everything was superb. The waiter knew her wines and gently directed us when we were about to make a misstep. The classical/Spanish guitarist provided the perfect background to a perfect evening.

Great small plate restaurant with a fabulous choice of tapas. Extremely busy bustling place even in off season. Reservations essential or expect a wait.

We ordered the fried Brussel sprouts, salad that was on special, potatoes with poached egg (can't remember what it was called), and the paella. Everything was great! We're cocktails drinkers and those aren available, so we chose from the limited beer selection instead, but the local beers hit the spot. Only complaint is that there was no music and we... More
