We were here for diner on a Friday night. Our server was friendly, but the food was slow to come out. My husband enjoyed the valencia paella. The tapas were tasty, especially the potato leek tart - by far our favorite.

Fantastic wine list, great selection of Cava! Had the Chefs Tasting Menu which includes 5 different tapas and a large cast iron skillet of Valencia Paella. Live Flamenco dancers and music in Oldtown Scottsdale!

We went with a party of 9. We had great service, most of us made Tapas selections and we were all very pleased with our meals. I love the idea of Tapas and smaller portions and sharing. Some had desserts and those were good too.

The state of AZ doesn't allow alcoholic beverage bought to the establishment that has its own liquor licences. We do have a extensive Wine list to choose from. Thank You!
