“Quality tapas, friendly staff, quaint space”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Only been once so far - Tapas were excellent; classic fresh flavours, good plating, and relatively large portions for tapas. Staff were outstanding - super-friendly and available. Definitely will go back, and highly recommend (although not many tables so reserve if going for peak times).

“Like they knew me for years”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Wondered in by myself on a work trip and instantly felt welcome. Let Cathy the bartender choose my meal and wine and was delighted with it all. How'd she know I love sea scallops? They were exquisite. The shrimp and chorizo was excellent too. The first wine she poured was like no other I've ever had. And the Spanish coffee was the perfect end. Excellent food. Excellent service. Classy, down to earth atmosphere. I'll come back next time I'm in Ottawa, but I sure wish I could remember the label on that first glass of wine...

“Always tasty...always fresh!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have been to this Tapas bar many times as we used to live in the area. They always have a unique selection of items to choose from. The portions are not huge which is great. No waste. Very quality ingredients. Always a great treat and very much a hidden treasure!
