What can I say but I even sent in an invitation to Guy Fieri at Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to come and enjoy a great little off the wall restaurant that offers great food, great wine (excellent value and only $10 corkage fee) and an atmosphere like no other. If you want to go on a weekend better make reservations. I suggest a weekday lunch or saturday or sunday lunch. When you drive into this BP gas station you wouldn't believe the wine selection and the food. Very cozy and just a great get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A must see when in Miami

This is a hidden gem located in the back of a BP gas station convenience store. Huge and spectacular wine selection, very nice atmosphere and excellent tapas. One of the best Spanish restaurants in Miami. We went several times and every time is a pleasure! Very good quality of ingredients and real Spanish seasoning. Excellent service, friendly and professional.
It is a perfect place to go with friends and family but maybe not the best option for young kids or babies.

It seems almost a shame to take away from the experience of driving up to a BP gas station for a great meal of spanish tapas... most people enjoy it more when they live the experience for themselves.... The food is tasty, and the menu is delightful. The wine selection is nothing short of spectacular, with incredibly affordable prices. Enjoy the experience, and give the gas station a chance to delight your senses. You will not be disappointed.

I am happy that we didn't backed up when we saw that the restaurant is inside a BP gas station!
The atmosphere is great, the spanish theme decor and spanish music create a very nice place to eat and have fun with friends.
The menu is pretty extensive and you whant to try everything :)
They also have wines from all over the world at a reasonable price, we had an Argentinean malbec delicious.
Defenetly Im coming back with more friends and family.
Remember to make a recervation firts.
