absolutely a little piece of sunny spain in not-always-so-sunny berlin. as soon as you walk in the atmosphere is so welcoming, the staff are great and the tapas are unstoppable! i have now learnt to order in shifts as all too often all our selections won't fit on the table! be warned, many of the dishes are quite garlicy which makes them delicious but sometimes it's good to know such things if this is a stop on a longer night out.

can't recommend one dish over another really, they are all so yum!

a nice little group often stop by to play some 'mood music' which is great but just be aware they'll ask for a small contribution afterwards.

and like many places in berlin it's cash only - no cards and no banks nearby...

Super tapas and very good value, Nice selection and all freshly made. Couldn't fault any of the dishes we had. The waiter spoke enough English to understand us as the majority of customers were German. Nice wheat beer to swill down the garlic prawns. Not too keen on allowing German "big issue" seller in to mither you, but the two guys who arrived to play some guitar/violin music were a nice change. If they come whilst you are there give them a couple of euros.
The only down side is they do not take any cards- cash only- they do not tell you this before eating , luckily the bill for 5 was less than 90 euros and I had enough cash.

We found this restaurant via Trip Advisor and were so happy. The food was delicious. We ordered 6 tapa plates, bread, aioli and a jar of sangria and spent only 40 euros...what a deal! Of all the dishes the only one I wouldn't order again is the tortilla espanola...but the others were perfect. Great ambiance. When we were there...there was a wedding party that made the atmosphere interesting and entertaining.

We were super lucky to get in without a reservation on a Friday evening since every table was reserved. Only one table was nearly finishing and after a glass of wine at the terrace we got their table after they left. It is possible to have dinner outside as well, but it was too cold when we were there. The food was good and the service was friendly. You shouldn't come here with a hurry, though, since they prepare everything after order and it takes time. The food is worth waiting and the atmosphere is so nice that you don't really mind even if it takes a while.
