“Great for foodies”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great tapas style menu with the chef's unique take. The menu is broken into smaller plates and larger plates, but the terms seemed flexible. Some of the "small" plates were generous portions, on par with the larger plates. I was dining alone, severely limiting my choices when the concept is to share everything. The server deftly guided me through the menu and provided good advice on appropriate choices.

The furnishings are sparse, more appropriate to a cafe shop than a dining destination. I'm not sure how comfortable the chairs would be if you were there for a long evening of eating and drinking. It is also a very open room. That creates buzz, but is not relaxing.

I loved the food but if you're not adventurous this might not be the place for you. I suggest relying on the server for advice if you're unsure.

The wine list is modest, but the selections suit the style of the restaurant, and are reasonably priced.

It would be a great place for a fun night out with friends who are open to trying different foods. It might be okay for a first date but it's not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner. Unless you're very familiar with your clients, it is also probably not the best place for a business dinner, given the noise factor and the sharing concept.

“Great Tapas”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

First time to D+A last night. Food was very good to excellent and service was fun and attentive. The flavours were diverse and taste buds had a workout. Would recommend the deserts too..amazing. Wine list was a little picked over but the wines we ordered were great.

“Excellent”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

This one is one of my fav in Winnipeg, the food is excellent : eclectic, well prepared, tasty and somehow out of the box. My fav is the red tuna! Service is nice, and the selection of wine perfectly fits the menu. A bit pricy, but never disappointed

“eclectic cuisine”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Dined here on Saturday.Very different selection of cuisines.Its a tapas.or small plate type of place.Staff were friendly,knowledgeable ans efficient.Firstly our table wobbled by about 1/2 an inch but staff quickly fixed this when advised.Tables maybe a little close together and noise level is a bit high but this is easily overlooked when you consider the good food,drinks and service.The drinks here are really good especially the ceasar's which contain a small appetizer in themselves.Ours had a skewer of celery,pickle,3 olives,peperoni stick and jumbo prawn in each.Also the secret beer that night was excellent.We tried 8 different dishes between 4 of us(actually a little to much food).The best of all was the roasted cauliflower,beer and cheddar soup.Among the 3 best soups I've ever had.The kale salad and soba noodle salad were great and quite large.the only dish that was just ok were the mushrooms on rice,which kind of got lost on the amount of rice.Tempura veg were the best I've had,the steak tartar with a light sear on home made chips was superb.Sable fish on a bed of polenta was crisp on the outside and buttery inside.The ash scallops were good,a little under done for my wifes taste but great for me.Though a little pricey for 2 scallops.Dessert,a peanut butter ice cream on flour-less cake was to die for.Prices were reasonable to moderately high.Overall just a great dining experience.
