“It is not a good choice.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

This is not real spanish food.
The "Calamares" is actually "Pota" bigger and chipper.
The tomato sauce taste exactly the same than brava sauce, the difference is last one is spice.
Tortilla is dry and usually they serve it cold.
If you have been in Spain you'll notice this bar the only thing it has spanish is the name.

“Nice restaurant with nice environemt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

This tapas restaurant is one of the bests among the options in Sandvika. We have used this restaurant couple of times and in general we are happy with their promises!

The best for us is the beard and garlic souce they serve. Tapas choices are rather extensive and quality is just above the average as well as the price. But in comparison to what you can get around the area, they still score. So, it is recommended if you want to have your dinner in Sandvika.

“Authentic Spanish atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Nice restaurant with authentic touch, like a normal medium-priced tapas restaurant in Spain. Warm atmosphere, Spanish employees and a good selection of tapas and cocktails. They also had a nice fino sherry. I liked that the waiter was fast bringing the food, as well as washing tables/cleaning up immediatly after guests left. The place was a bit over half-full on a Monday night, customers of all ages and also Spanish guests. Seemed like an appealing choice for the local area.

“Good food and nice place to eat tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Originally planned to pick an choose different tapas, but ended up with menu 2. A lot of them very good and some more plain (but as expected when picking a menu). In general good taste, nice atmosphere and Spanish people working there.

Good work a tapas alternative in Sandvika
