We were lucky to get a table for four around 5:30 on a Sunday evening. They do not take reservations and the wait started right after we arrived. We ordered 7 different tapas for 4 people and we were all satisfied. After a full day of visiting wineries and a full lunch, this was a perfect spot for dinner. The lamb chops, corn chowder and bacalao were a few favorites. Great service & tapas!

We were so happy to be able to be able to walk-in on Friday night. The restaurant is located in an incredibly nice downtown area in Napa with lots of excellent walking in the area. Even if you end having to wait for table, it is an easy area to go for a walk and explore.

As customary for most tapas places, we ordered the Paella - they had two different versions (classical and seafood). We decided to get a smaller size in each to get the two different versions. I thought the classical Paella was delicous. In addition, we did the gambas al ajillo and flat iron steak - they were both very delicious. We also ordered the lamb chops but was not as impressed with the dish.

I also ordered a glass of the sangria and it was very delicious. The service was good because they were pretty busy but they did miss a couple of drinks/dishes that we had ordered.

This is a tapas style restaurant. After a day of visiting wineries, this was perfect. We ordered lamb chops, queso frito, flat iron steak and a frittata style tortilla. The service was excellent and the food had amazing seasoning and each of the orders was cooked to perfection. I always worry that lamb will be over cooked, but these were crispy on the outside and perfect on the inside. I would highly recommend all the items we ordered, particularly the lamb chops.

We were fortunate to get a table for dinner without a reservation, as the place was busy on a Sunday night. Our waiter was cheerful and helpful, suggesting 2-3 plates per person to share. We ordered the avocado gazpacho (delicious and refreshing), pimiento padron (eye-watering spicy hot!), prawns and pork cheeks (both yummy). Their desserts are also worth a try, especially the peach empanada. Altogether a pleasant dining experience, reasonably priced.

We had a selection of tapas for the three of us. The ceviche was excellent, the bacalao also was very good. We ordered the black seafood paella, and were disappointed. Not with the flavors which were wonderful, but compared to the pricing of the other dishes, we were surprised at how small this serving was. It was basically double the price from the other items on the menu. Overall, we had enough to eat but this was the one item we thought was way overpriced.
