the foie gras was absolutely fabulous, lamb chops were superb & the bottle of tempranillo the waiter recommend was great.... had dined there Valentines day evening.. It wasn't crowed due to couples dining or waiting area, but packed tight as possible the atmosphere is NOT ROMANTIC at all... extremely loud and closely set tables next to each other. .. Could not hold a conversation.

I moved to Lafayette about 3 years ago and have bemoaned the lack of any realy foodie restaurants. There's tons of good eating, but, until Pamplona, little on the gourmet side.

The chef is brilliant, the flavors are bold and intense and never disappoint.

Every meal I've had has been exceptional. But, as others have noted, it's not cheap. But, in my opinion, it's priced correctly for the level of expertise and taste.

Some of my favorite dishes are the chargrilled oysters, the carpaccio of beef, and the duck confit. And you must get the ciabatta bread with garlic chili oil!

Absolutely loved this restaurant!! Every single dish that we ordered was incredible and the wine is amazing! The only problem here is that it is expensive to eat here but, "I have to tell you" it is well worth it! It also helps when you have great company which we were lucky enough to have!! Thanks John and Jennifer!
