“What is all the hype about?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We booked a table after seeing that it was ranked as the top tapas bar in Stockholm at Tripadvisor. My SO and I have been to some fantastic tapas restaurants in other European cities following Tripadvisor´s rankings (Volver, Berlin among others), but this time it let us down.

The reservation was a smooth process and at the restaurant a welcoming waiter showed us to the table. The restaurant´s atmosphere was held up by the energetic waiter, not really grasping the spanish feeling as it might have intended to. Our drinks and food came within a decent time frame, but that is also when we realized that we should not trust Tripadvisor blindly.

The food was nothing more than average. The ingredients lacked freshness, edge and inspiration. Quite a boring meal to be honest. The albondigas was flat were it should be spicy, the aioli seemed to lack garlic, and the Manchego weak. The best dish was the fried potatoes, which is kind of sad, really. Probably a nice place to take your family out for dinner, if you want something safe. Although, if you´re seeking a new exciting food experience, we will not recommend this place.

“Excellent tapas and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Great selection of tapas. You order 3 or 4 tapas per person. Each plate is approx 70kr. The taste was amazing. I lived in Spain for 2 years and this was better than anything I've found in Spain. The staff was very friendly and everything was served quickly. Their sign out front doesn't do justice to their service and quality of food - meaning, that if we had just walked by without doing some internet research, we probably wouldn't have gone in. We will definitely be back there.

“Affordable and tasty tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Great selection of tapas, all are tasty and not expensive! Definitely worth a visit. I would advise booking in advance, it's very popular and they don't have a lot of space.
