Reviewed November 28, 2012

Everything was delicious. The creme brûlée is a must(natilla). Not the best place for kids. Nice environment. Good service.

“Flavorful Small Plates (Tapas), Authentic Spanish”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

real spanish waiters, nice sangria (could be more fruity thought) and excellent tapas plates -- a great variety on the menu, lots of flavors, and prepared well. the stuffed peppers with braised beef are to die for! the gazpacho is excellent, and the lamb chops burst with grilled taste. the quail is nice, but not a lot of meat on the bones. and the cod (baccalo) is bland -- a white fish over lentils....double bland. but the bread and oil they give you are indeed a taste of europe. this place is booked constantly so make reservations. but i highly recommend it for flavor and variety -- not ypour usual eatery.

“Tasty tapas in swanky location”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We had yummy appetizers here and I would return for a light meal.
The tapas were not huge, but they were quite good.

“Nice restaurant but not great tapas”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

It's really nice inside (lighting, music, ambiance) but the food is very average and the service is not great either - had to try and trip the waiters to get their notice.

“In the mood for tapas?”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place has a great atmosphere. We had several tapas. The basics that we always order and then we tried the Tostada con Escalibada de Verduras. That was really good. We also like the monkfish dish.
