We didn’t have a reservation, so we sat at the bar and it turned out to be the greatest location. Chatted with the manager, drank a great bottle of wine, watched the tapas go by and worked our way through the Paella Marinera, Port tenderloin...More

What a sweet little place this is. Great neighborhood feel. The tapas are wonderful. I would highly recommend the lamb chops and the Marchego Cheese dish. There were many tapas to choose from the staff is very helpful. I will definitely be back.

Be sure to order and share the plates. The cocktail and wine list is worthy of exploration. The black ink pasta dish was so good!

The tapas are well thought through with interesting but good combinations. The food was very flavorful. Great sized portions, good drink list and reasonably priced. A small, humble yet inviting dining room. Very easy location in NE Mpls to grab dinner before a show or...More

Heard so much good things about it that we made a reservation for 6 pm Saturday may 13 and was disappointed. We started with croquets de cabra. Goat cheese croquets. It had good taste but was dry. It came with some caramelized shallots and pepper...More
