We went for lunch during Taste Calgary's food tasting week. Four courses for $25. A set menu. Lovely flavors and interesting combinations all pleasingly presented. Nice bright space with tables not too crowded. Pleasant decor. Would go back again.

I gave this place a thumbs up, the atmosphere is nice and the food is fairly good. There are reviews that say it's expensive and some of the food is indeed. You'll need to choose wisely though to get the most mileage out of your buck though:
Starting with the drinks... Mojito for $13. Very good but considering at least 1/2 the glass is filled with ice, it goes down way to easily. Try the jug of Sangria instead. $21 for 3 seared scallops, we added another since we were a party of 4 which made that dish $26.50. Going rate for seared scallops is probably closer to $16-18. We all agreed that we could've skipped the scallops and gone with more Cod Fritters which were just as good and cost $10.50 for 4. I agree with another review here about the Paella, you'd expect a larger portion for the price. The mixed grill at $75 was tasty and considering it included Wagyu beef the $75 was probably about right. Other dishes that we felt was OK value for the $$$: Serrano Ham, Mushroom Toast, Fritters, Sardines. Pass next time: Paella, Scallops, Mojito
Have to agree with what others have said about the staff, they were friendly, attentive when they needed to be and were extremely helpful when picking the tapas.

Busy, fun vibe, waitress knew her stuff and was very friendly. Sangria was divine, had the tasting menu...good overall. Only real complaint was the price for what you get...a little steep, but to be expected in cow town.

Tasty tapas, great interior and wonderful atmosphere. I loved the Guadalupe at the bar among all liquer bottles. The staff is knowledgable, attentive & pleasant.
Not the best place if you wanna have a close conversation as the cacophony of other guests' talk is distracting. But great for food, drinks, people watching, dates and good times.

Thanks for standing out in this otherwise bleak town.

Great restaurant for any event. Fantastic tapas, wonderful wine list, superb service and all so reasonably priced you almost forget you are in Calgary.
