Monday and Tuesday's the wine is half price. Great tapas sized portions during happy hour. We had a great time.

An atmospheric wine bar and tapas restaurant in Abbot Kinney section of Venice. Nice tapas selection and terrific value if you come during happy hour on Monday or Tuesday (when there is a selection of bottled wine at half price). The tapas were good - not particularly stunning - but you've got to appreciate bacon wrapped dates.... and the BBQ short rib sliders were very good. It does get a bit noisy in the evening. Solo, with friends, or on a date, I plan to return and check out more of the menu.

Excellent paella and lamb chops. Avoid weekends if possible. Reservations essential. They could withdraw some tables. appealing ambiance. Youngish crowd.

Great place on Abbot Kinney (which is a fun spot for shopping, eating and people watching). Fun atmosphere, yummy tapas and good wine list. Would definitely go back.

Our grown daughter brought us here. We did not have reservations, but it was 8 pm on a thursday, so we were seated right away. It was very crowded and had a fun, lively ambiance.
We had various Tapas which were fairly tasty, but a little bland. We shared paella, which had no flavor whatsoever. It didn't taste bad, it just needed seasoning. We salted it, that helped a bit.
The staff was friendly and the place it cute. Just go for drinks and have the bacon wrapped dates, they were delicious!
