Stumbled on this place for a midweek dinner after reading review in tripadvisor we have it a shot. Great place. Potatoes lamb meatballs and chocolate dessert were delicious. The wines we sampled were also great. We will be back.

We have rate at many fine Spanish tapas restaurants and this isn't one of them. Very limited selections and the ones we ordered were not something we considered tasty or authentic Spanish. Service was fine, just not the food.

This Spanish restaurant has an excellent selection of very well prepared small plates. We sat at the long, very comfortable copper bar (highly recommended if the restaurant is full). Most of the tapas plates come in small and large sizes, and the waiter helped us pick out the plate size of each dish. Four plates (two small and two large) was plenty for two people, and the wine list was excellent. The only fault we could find was that the breading on the fried dishes was a little heavy. Overall, an excellent meal. We wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Amazon menu of veg, lamb, and seafood tapas. The lamb meatballs were only surpassed by the burgers. The nachos and halibut were a little overwhelmed by the chorizo (great if you love the Spanish sausage). great atmosphere with Art Deco lights, mirrored walls and backlit bar.

We had to come back on a second night to visit La Rambla since it was closed for construction the first time. A local that got there at the same time we did expressed her disappointment since she said it was a favorite of hers. We were glad we came back.

Our waiter was very patient and helpful as we figured out the menu and what we wanted to order. We knew that Tapas would be small servings, so he helped us guage just what we would ge so we didn't order unwisely.

The food was well prepared and the overall experience was very enjoyable.
