“Great Food, Great Restaraunt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Very nice atmosphere; quiet with Spanish music. Given the wide array of choices on the menu, the best thing to do is to ask the owner/chef to give you some recommendations. He will then begin to prepare tapas and bring them to the table, and you just need to tell him when to stop. The tapas are all very good and the paella is fantastic.

The service was very good, food great, good value. I will definitely go back.

“Horrible, Horrible, Horrible, beware!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

Well my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We are new to Toronto, so we heard that this place was nice and romantic and we also love Spanish food being that my husband is Spanish. Before we ordered I asked our waiter about the portions and he said plenty of food,we ordered a litre of Sangria, not bad. Then we ordered one of the combos where it comes with a bunch of Tapas, we could not believe our eyes as the Tapas were coming, the food was cold and the size were bite size, soooooo small that if one person ate the whole order, they will still leave hungry. We spent $150 for nothing, we should have known when we walked in that the restaurant was empty. Bottom line is dont waste your money, I would have been happier @ a fast food place : (

“Not worth the trip”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2010

Extremely over priced food, very small portions and low quality. It had the feel of a sweat shop, pumping out food, quickly by an owner and staff who were not Spanish, the entertainment was less than 10 minutes and the whole thing felt like a scam. We spent a lot of money and left hungry and feeling sorry for the waitresses.

The owner was intrusively engaging in tortuos small talk. Not vegetarian friendly. Get rid of the stuffed bull's head on the wall.
