“Something missing”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

The food was excellent. I had the rib eye $27 and my wife the seafood paella $29. Great food as I said but maybe a little overpriced. We also had deserts of peanut butter cheesecake at $7 each which were lovely but didn't like the squirmy cream around the plate.

“If you are in Boothbay Harbor, you HAVE to try this place!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

The blueberry-pomegranate sangria is unbelievably good- must try. Our group of 5 ordered several different tapas and have to say they were all delicious. We ate outside on the upper deck that has great views - a bit crowded up there but wasnt an issue for us. Highly recommend this restuarant ...we will be back and often!!

“Tired travelers check out tapas offerings”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

The marinated short ribs tapas were delicious as was the sweet red paper bisque. The margarita tasted like it came from a powder mix--not my favorite version. I give it high marks for an ambitious tapas menu. Might try again.

“Friendly atmosphere and great food”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Our family group spent a few hours eating excellent tapas, trying local beers and were pleasantly entertained by the staff. Great position and views from upstairs. We took the advice given and traveled to Jackson NH a few days later and it was as good as described.

“Fantastic Tapas”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

We drove downtown wondering if we could find a parking spot for our 8 p.m. reservation at this restaurant. It was easier than I thought it would be. The spaces are all clearly marked off with white lines and have a two hour limit. That's helpful.

This restaurant has three floors and only the first floor (with no scenic view) accepts reservations. It was a chilly evening, starting to get dark, and so the first floor made sense for us old folks. It was cozy and rustic. Our service was good. We chose several tapas dishes for our dinner, which were very good and the sauces on them were great ! We've been to a few tapas restaurants and this one definitely was the best. Wines were reasonably priced, too. Once again tripadvisor directed us to an excellent venue.
