We enjoyed our tapas and experience at Contigo. While the chicken skewer appetizer and beet salad weren't really all that exciting or different, the entree albondigas (meatballs) and squash flatbread pizza were crazy good. I was surprised to find Isastegi cider on the drink list and even more surprised to find it was carb free (no clue how they remove carbs from an apple-based alcohol, but somehow...) It's VERY dry but if you like that, it's worth trying this import from Spain.

We initially skipped dessert because we weren't stricken by any of the menu descriptions...until we saw what our neighbor table ordered. The "hot chocolate" is not a beverage like you might think - here, it's served more like a thin fondue with churros to dip. They were delicious but of course you're left with a significant amount of chocolate "soup" after the few churros are gone and we weren't really into drinking/spooning the remainder. All in all though, a nice place specializing in local ingredients.

Be sure to make a reservation.

SF is filled with marvelous restaurants, and this Castro Tapas bar sits comfortably among them. Our party of four tasted widely from all corners of the menu, and there wasn't a clunker among the dishes we tasted. Can't wait to return!

This intimate restaurant tucked away in Noe Valley is a food lovers dream. Gorgeous fresh ingredients put together in new fresh ways. The flatbread with squash from their wood oven is wonderful. Nice Spanish wine selection with a knowledgable staff to guide you. Tasting menu was a lovely mix from the menu

We recently dined here with family and it was a fantastic experience. The marinated olives, sardines, and squid harkened back to my time living in Madrid. Those who drank the wine loved it, and the rest of us had their delicious homemade lime soda. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was hip.

The only complaint is that after sampling seven plates of tapas for four people, I was still hungry.The portion was on the small side. The total came to approximately $180, which is decent for four; however, one would expect to be reasonably full for that amount. We'll order more next time.

We had a wonderful meal at this small restaurant in Noe Valley. Everything was served well. The bottom line did add up but we thoroughly enjoyed all the different dishes.
