“Great food, good wine, no cocktails.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The only shortcoming of this place is it doesn't have a full bar, but damn their tapas are terrific. Very filling and fairly priced. A party of six ate like pigs, drank like fools, and got out for under 30 euros each. Excellent atmosphere, good service except drink service was soooo slow, excellent food. Can't have the bill pre-divided, but that's the case in much of Dublin. Eat here if you like good tapas and good atmosphere.

“cosy place, nice food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I really like this restaurant. It's one of my favourites in Dublin, if not my favourite. The food is tasty but not too heavy. The service is excellent. The place is small and cosy and it feels like being in Spain (more spain than Cuba actually..). I would recommend it to anyone who likes nice, not expensive food and a cosy environment. Don't forget to taste their Sangria. Delicious.

“Mediocre quality and overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

The tapas were very simple and bland and overpriced. We ordered a platter with a group of people and it was not worth the money per head. The tortillas were obviously meant to be a filler and were flavourless but heavy on the stomach. The staff were friendly enough and the atmosphere was nice, but for anyone who knows good tapas then you will probably be disappointed.Overall an average experience and will not be going back.

“Super atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Best place in Dublin for tapas. Always love going here, great staff and food. Never had a bad experience and always just rocked up at the last minute. If you're visiting Dublin you should stop here for a bit to eat.

“I'll go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Very laid back and low key, but my paella was delicious, the rioja very drinkable, and the panacotta absolutely lovely.
