Went here with with the AH restaurant deal. Compared with my tapas experience the day before, this was heaven. The menu of the deal was fixed. Some bread with tappenade, some cold appitizer, followed by fish and after that meat. No real special dishes, just good decent tapas. My girlfriend is vegetarian and they made sure to include special dishes... More

El Sueno is a good place to be for a shoarma dish with fries. This is my favorite dish, as extra one shoarmabun. Quality and taste are consistent good over the years. I recommend you for an evening out without the dinner formalities.

Had the beer battered artichokes, very nice in flavor and you really get a nice subtle beer note, could use just maybe a dash of salt. Others had the grilled lamb and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly staff, and fast service.

the 2 waiting staff spent their time chatting amongst themselves rather than taking care of the customers. We ordered the standard Tapas menus at 26€ as Paella would have taken 3/4 hour. Lousy food, I mean spanish fried potatoes were just a bowl of frietjes with paprika & salt powdered on the top.. kind of unimpressive. Nothing was really authentically... More

We liked it. As for food, we didn't take the menu but made our own selection. The meat my husband had was very-well prepared. My selection of tapas was neither disappoining. The food was actually spicy (or, it's better to say, you always had a spicy aftertaste even when you hadn't expected it). So if it's not to your liking,... More

We liked the tapas in this restaurant. Friendly staff. The restaurant is a little bit dark.

Food Tastes like they have a chef who is not interested in the quality. The money this restaurant is charging for simple dishes is not in relation with the food they serve. This food should not be allowed to have the title tapas.

Some of my fiance's Dutch family lives in Soest so when I went to visit I requested that we go out to this restaurant. I studied in Spain during my college career and spent a lot of time in various tapas bars across the country. It was one of my most favorite parts of Spanish culture and frankly, good tapas... More
