Marvelous night here. Dinner, drinks and very good entertainment by way of Tango Dancing. Very good food, drinks, and service.

“Snooty but good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

The tapas were great but the staff was stuck up. Treated us like we were going to stiff them for the bill or something. Need more dessert choices and white sangria.

“One of the best restaurants in Santa Fe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

From the tapas to the platos to wine selection, the food here is delicious and the service matches it. There are two rooms, a dining room, and a tapas/entertainment room. Only minor complaint (it was very busy) was the noise level was a little high.

“Spain in New Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We have various tapas like crab croquettes, tortilla, boquerones and morsilla.

For the entrée we had paella and it was AMAZING!!! One of the best meals I've ever had.

“One of my top 3 Restaurants in Santa Fe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

This little gem is one of the most overlooked places in town. There are several Tapas places but this place is the most consistent and most delicious by far. There is a bar area with Flamenco music on certain nights in addition to the main dining area. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. I have lived in Santa Fe off/on for 20 yrs and it amazes me when I tell people about it and they've never been! Be sure to make reservations on the weekends, it's usually packed with those in the know! I go here several times a year.
