We were welcomed with a complimentary taste of Spanish Cava... very nice. Tapas were interesting and varied. Extensive wine and beer menu. Restaurant itself is clean, modern, simple and comfortable. A great experience.

Atmosphere was perfect. Had been in Costa Rica for ten days already and hadn't experienced anything close to real Spanish tapas anywhere yet until we found this gem. We were served mostly by one of the owners (restaurant is owned by four brothers originally from North of Barcelona, Spain). Excellent/friendly service, amazing food and atmosphere. True Catalonian tapas that brought us memories back to our trip to Barcelona, hard to find this type of authentic food in the Americas. Highly recommended if you are in the San Jose/Santa Ana area.

Beautiful, minimalist design. The two brothers/owners we met were very warm and hospitable. The food was excellent.

First the design of the place: contemporary decor, intimate, yet very welcoming.
The menu: a wonderful offering of tapas, salads, and mains. We tried five different tapas, each of which was well prepared and tasty.
