My friend invited us to try out this restaurant. The menu is like reading a book. We had ordered seafood soup which was very delicious. We also ordered a dinner for two and added some mussels for appetizer. Service was excellent but for Friday night this place is very slow. Overall experience was good.

I had dinner here. The food was pretty ordinary and taste very mediocre. The long menu gives the false impression that this is a great place to dine. The paella was watery. The rice in the two other dishes we ordered were very similar to the one in the paella.I wish I had chosen another place to dine!

On top of that we ordered a couple tapas starters: GALICIA : Calamari Stuffed With Crab Meat, Piquillo Pepper Sauce and also... More

To be honest, we felt sorry for them, the couple that were running this place. They seemed very nice, but the food was simply poor. Every dish that came was bland or greasy and simply unappetising. I'm going to give it two stars rather than one because my wife feels bad for them.

I've been here a few times and the food is consistently good. While a great selection of authentic tapas, there are almost too many options on the menu making you wonder how well of a job they can actually do on each dish.

We have eaten a number of times here. Reviews are generally commenting on it being a little expensive but 6-7 tapas plates is an excellent meal for 2. try the boquerones ('white anchovy') which are generous and excellent or the standard fare taps of patatas bravas which are well spiced and fresh. Owners in my experience are friendly and helpful... More

First time at this restaurant, had a very light supper, shared the fresh bread & butter, garlic shrimps and gnocchi - all were excellent. Service was fast and friendly, would recommend this restaurant. Unfortunately, they are not open for lunch during the week, only Sat. & Sun. I believe.

We just lucked upon it when hungry, tapas on the signage sounded good and they had paella for one, without an advance order, which is often not the case. I make paella and love it. Its actually a long prep time to do it properly. To do it properly (look it up) one needs to leave in a hot oven... More

We had a horrible experience post dinner when we started asking for the 1k OpenTable dining points that the restaurant posted on OpenTable's website. The reason we checked it out was for the points and to try their tapas. The food wasn't exceptional but it will pass. The tapas were unfortunately lukewarm except for the buerre blanc scallops which the... More
