“Not the best tapas in Milwaukee”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Went with some friends last night before going to the theatre. Got 5-6 different things, including the vegetable paella. While everything was good, there was nothing that was outstanding that I thought I'd need to come back and get again. Other than dealing with a new bartender who couldn't find a corkscrew, the service was good and she even got us a second paella when the first one was burnt.
All in all, it was okay, but if you're looking for tapas in Milwaukee, there are better places to go in my opinion.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Went to see the belly Dancers which was really fun. Didn't plan on eating but I'm glad I did, the food was delicious! The place was empty when I'm went so I'm not sure if the word has gotten out how great the food is. Had about 8 different items from the tapas menu and loved every one of them.

“Not exactly real Spanish Tapas”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This place is still a diamond in the rough....Honestly the decor needs a womans touch or a designer.
The food was not bad, but was not great for the price. However, the dessert was AMAZING! Best Flan I have ever had, even better than what I have had in Spain and Mexico.
They had great Flaminco Dancers on Thursday evenings.

“Terrible”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Figured it's worth a shot since it was something different, had the a few tapas dishes and then the paella espana. Tapas was over-rated and the seafood in the paella was fishy, grainy, needed to be cleaned thoroughly and the rice was undercooked. Seems the restaurant isn't sure how their food should be prepared/cooked; and they need a better sangria recipe.
