Hidden little gem of a tapas restaurant in downtown Santa Ana. The reviews were so good that a friend and I wanted to try it since we were in the general area. It took a lot longer to drive there than we thought though but it was worth it. We were greeted at the outside patio door by a very friendly hostess and since it was a very hot night she suggested we sit in the patio at a long table with 2 other people at the other end. Everyone is very friendly and our wait person was so excited and knowledgeable about the food served. She explained that each dish was enough for 2 people and we ordered the lamb tacos with habanero (excellent), bacon wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates (too rich for my taste, loaded with cheese), and pork belly, quite good.

of European and Mexican food. Pretty much all dishes are really good, you can't go wrong with any of them.

Met a friend for dinner/drinks on a Thursday night. It wasn't crowded and we were seated at the bar. The atmosphere in here is great, and the staff are super friendly. The menu has fun flavors and combinations. We really enjoyed our mussels, braised kale and fish tacos! Will definitely come back here again. When the weather warms up their patio space is great for groups.
