Great food but very small place so at busy times you will have to wait or share table. Food was served quickly and very tasty but lots of garlic!!!!!

We order per made dishes and they are just over heated in the microwave, and the somehow mixes up with out order, so, we waited for one hour for our calamari. They apologies though....but it's just a bit too late.

Really great authentic tapas style restaurant. Simple chourizo and crusty bread was sooooooo good,spinach with pine nuts was very good as well. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much we returned the next day for the same thing. Loved it!

A reliable good Spanish tapas place, not far from Dam Square.
Nothing amazing, but pretty good.
I second a previous reviewer's advice on beware on the portion sizes: unlike most tapas places I have been where a single tapa was a few bites of something for a slight price, each tapa that we ordered was at roughly a lunch sized portion of the item. So much more food than needed!
