“Bubbly little place”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

On entering the restaurant it was a little dated but I suppose that added to the authenticity of the place, it was absolutely rammed full we had a party of 8 booked at the last minute and they managed to squeeze us in , staff were extremely friendly, the food was cooked very well, for starter we had the seafood tapas for the table, every person on the table had a different main course all enjoyed the food very much not one person had a bad word to say, the bill was very expensive but still in line with Zurich prices so no complaints, a fun lively evening

“good food, bad service”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Liked the food. Were there last when smoking permitted. The management deemed us the villains when we took offense with 3 people smoking cigars. We couldn't open windows as the cigar smokers complained. The management asked US to move rather than the smoke creators. Thank goodness Zurich finally prohibited smoking in restaurants. Might try the restaurant again but not impressed with their last response.

“Great food, great wines and great service”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

The restaurant doesn't look like it is one of the best in Zurich but it surely is.
The food is outstanding, the wines are just a dream (Hacienda Monasterio, 2007) and the service is great. We were just 3 peolpe but the owner took his time with us, sat at our table and even offered us some carachillos.
Top noch.
Order Tapas, veal cutlet with saffron risotto and for dessert a crema catalana!
A dream.

“Please go to another restaurant!”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We went there yesterday night and it was one of the worse experience here in zurich so far; the food was nothing special (some tapas, one dish of paella, some poor wine), service very poor and the price absolutely high (we were in 12 and we paid each 135 CHF). I believe it is a restaurant for tourists.

“Spanish restaurant without Sagria...!!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

If you've ever visited spanish restaurant without sagria...let me know so as to feel OK...!!! Noisy, no free space even to walk, old-dirty decor and very poor menu (just a few plates)...!!! Yes taste foods, but 40-50 € each one...!!! There where much better restaurants, in front of the river (better view), modern-new decor and better prices...!!! If i remember good, I found it as a TRIP ADVISOR'S suggestion for cheap food in Zurich... don't you think that they must be more careful when you suggest sth...???
