“Dissapointing...”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Hubs & I stopped in for a break from Christmas shopping... Not crowded, but nowhere near full... First sat at the bar, then decided to move to the patio... No problem, very accommodating. The manager/host/ gentleman who greeted us was very pleasant... But service was horrible! No language barrier, as we speak Spanish... But everything that we ordered was second- guessed or questioned... And when the food was brought out (2 rounds of tapas), it was always delivered to the table across from us. By the waiter who TOOK our order! Drink refills were non- existent, I never recieved my water that I asked for (had wine as well). But the ultimate downer was the fact that everything was STICKY!!! The table, bar, floor... Not Cool. Food was good- not spectacular, but solid. I might stop in again & give them another chance, but I wouldn't suggest it or drag a friend in to eat... Just not impressed. Content, yes, but nothing outstanding.

“not Spanish!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

terrible food and service. This is not spanish food or even close. It is some combination of mexican. latin, wanna be tapas. Sangria was awful too and the place was dirty.

“Good Food, Decent Service.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Went here based on some recommendations by locals. We tried 5 different Tapas dishes and all were excellent. Service was okay, not great, but not the best either. Prices are very reasonable. All in all we would definitely visit again if we were to return to Houston.

“Fun to try!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

My daughters and I enjoyed dinner here. We tried 5 different tapas plates. Definitely recommend the empanadas - next time we'll get more! This is a fun restaurant. Good atmosphere and service. We had an early dinner and it wasn't too noisy at that time.
