The tapas were flavorful, each providing a different blend of tastes. Some that I thought would have been weird, like their specialty bacon-wrapped dates, turned out to be good. My kids enjoyed the frenchie and boar bacon burgers. I enjoyed the flatbreads and the short ribs al pastor.
Espresso affogato was just exquisite.

Lola Gaspar is a lively, exciting restaurant tucked in the Santa Ana artist area. It is a delightful way to spend an evening. Sitting outside is a good idea since the restaurant is quite small. There is a small but well attended bar. The drinks are potent but good. Try their margaritas! The food is very good but the service is a bit slow because of a very small kitchen but when it comes out, everything is forgiven because it is so good. Sharing is a good thing to do. Try the flatbreads, and the warm chips with guacamole and 3 salsa's ranging from mild to hot. We shared the squid ink rice (sort of paella) with mussels, calamari, and other delights. It was very good and we would highly recommend it.
Take the time to go to the restaurant, it is a little gem in Santa Ana.
