Stopped in here to get a glass of wine and a few tapas and we were very pleased. The grilled octopus was perfectly done, but my favorite was the house salad with very very fresh tomatoes and a nice salty vinaigrette. Did not try the paella, but there were some really good looking options.

I dined at this cute little Chelsea restaurant and was pleasantly pleased regarding the tapas and paellas.
For starters , their figs wrapped was a great little bite, the cheese tapas was the right amount of salty, and shrimp in garlic sauce.

We had both the meat paella with Spanish rice and the seafood with noodles. The seafood was amazing and fresh.

For deserts , order the flan or mini donuts filled with warm chocolates

Overall a cute place for tapas and laughs

Thank Joseph A

This is an elegant, well located restaurant. We sat at the comfortable bar and were served by a gracious woman who brought us her recommendations for wine and tapas, all of which we loved. The is the first time I've ever had razor clams - I always see the shells on the beach but oh what an intense flavor! Not inexpensive - you know those choices pile up and none of them were cheap - but I would go back again and again just for the taste, ambiance, and fine service.

Wow - I wish that the paella in Spain was this good! The appetizers were fantastic, especially the suckling pig and the octopus. But the dishes were even better!The arroz negro sounds strange as the rice is colored black using a bit of squid ink. The result is beyond description - an incredible and subtle mix of flavors that are unique.

TIP: The seating is mostly at long, community style tables. Lots of fun, but just know what to expect.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in NYC. The food is so good and the sangrias are to die for. Please note that this place is not a fast place to eat because they make the paella to order. It is worth the wait though.

The restaurant is very small and the tables are extremely close. You can hear everything that the people next to you are saying. No privacy at all.

Overall, excellent- a must when in NYC.
